Sunday 17th February saw JKS England members gather in in York for the JKS England annual February course and grading in York featuring the Head of JKS England, Alan Campbell Sensei 7th Dan and Senior JKS England instructor Steve Carless Sensei 6th Dan.
The day started early with lower kyu grades sessions before culminating in 4 hours of brown and black belt karate in the afternoon.
