Uplands Community College in Wadhurst - the scene of so much of the history of Budokan in the UK, stretching back to the '70's, once again hosted our first workshop of 2017, held on 21 January.
These workshops are designed to focus on technical considerations relevant to the needs of each of the participants grade levels - so the dan grade teachers, instructors and the non-dan grade students all work together in a large group and then break up into small groups, to work on a wide variety of techniques relevant to their needs.
