What a wonderful way to end the year! Our Christmas Karate class was full of fun, excitement and surprises. Here are some highlights of what we did and who we celebrated.
2023 Punches/Blocks/Kicks Challenge
We continued our challenge to do 2023 punches, blocks and kicks before the end of the year. We had to work hard and fast, but we did it! We completed the second half of the challenge and showed our strength and stamina. Well done, everyone!
Special Awards from Sensei Gabi and Santa
We were honored to receive special awards from our Sensei Gabi and Santa Claus himself. They recognized our achievements and progress throughout the year and gave us certificates and medals. We were so happy and grateful for their support and encouragement.
A Very Special Guest – Pikachu of Peterborough
We had a very special guest who came to cheer us on during the last 111 punches. It was Pikachu of Peterborough! He was so cute and friendly, and he gave us high-fives and hugs. He also posed for some photos with us. Thank you, Pikachu, for making our day!
Sensei Amandeep from Gakusei Karate
We were also delighted to welcome Sensei Amandeep from Gakusei Karate, who came all the way from London to visit us in our last class of the year. He shared his knowledge and experience with us and gave us some tips and advice. He also joined us in some drills and games. Thank you, Sensei Amandeep, for your kindness and generosity.
