Caversham Kata (Seiken)

This kata was performed as just a little bit of post-grading fun during a Saturday lesson on

8th March 2008. The class was split into four groups by grade and then asked to create a small combination of four moves containing at least:- a block, a strike or counter, a kick or a turn. Later in the lesson, volunteers were asked from each group to teach their combination to the class. Later the four combinations were joined together and performed as a single kata you see below.
