Jordan Thomas Kumite Course

25 March 2017, Wellingborough

Recently, our club was very lucky to have a special visit from Jordan Thomas, England’s first karate world champion for twelve years. Jordan delivered two exciting sessions for us. The first warmed everyone up in a fun, functional and focused way before working on the basic skills needed to be successful in competition. We then enjoyed some great, fun drills that got everyone working together.

Before the second session, Jordan held a Q & A session and talked in depth about his inspiring karate journey, from a four year-old all the way to achieving the title of world champion. The second session included some excellent kicking and punching drills, and an opportunity to watch Jordan demonstrate his speed and skill. This really showed the students, both young and not so young, the level that can be reached with hard work and commitment.

The session ended too soon but Jordan was happy to stay and chat, and sign students sparring gloves. Thank you to all who attended this fantastic and inspirational event, and of course we are very grateful to Jordan for giving us an insight into his karate journey so far. We hope to welcome Jordan back in the winter.
