Yesterday, a small demo team and I lead a demo and taster session in traditional karate for the St. Bees Cubs pack. We showed them some basic karate movements and kata before getting them all involved to try it out themselves to help towards gaining their martial arts badge!
The cubs worked very hard and were a credit to their pack leaders. They all made us feel very welcome and it is always a pleasure to share the beauty of traditional karate to members of the wider community.
A big thank you to the demo team for taking time out of their day to attend, and of course to Sarah Servant for the kind invitation. Over the years we have conducted sessions for many local beaver/cub/guides/scout groups and St. Bees has always been one of the best behaved groups, being always willing to learn and full of enthusiasm.
