MICHELLE Creese has joined the team of three existing instructors at Weston Karate Club after 11 years of training.She is the first female instructor in the clubs 22 year history and no doubt will prove to be a great asset to the club. With four instructors, the club has one of the best instructors per student ratio locally.There was another well attended and successful grading for Weston Karate Club. This can be a testing time for an individual's nerves as they have to demonstrate their knowledge and aptitude in karate to enable them to attain their next belt. Each belt has different criteria that have to be fulfilled.The higher grade students must display their techniques and also show great stamina and control in their freestyle kumite (fighting). They must also demonstrate the techniques that they have learned over the years can be put to a practical use.There were 54 students grading, ranging from the age of seven years and up taking part. This is an excellent number of students for a local club. Karate is an excellent disciplined activity for anyone to take up, especially children lacking in con-fidence and co-ordination, but also for adults to learn self-defence or who just wish to get fit. Weston Karate Club continues to maintain an excellent reputation, superior standard of instruction and value second to none.New classes for beginners starting January 8, 2007, at Hutton Moor Leisure Centre and St Mark's School, Worle. If you have trained in martial arts previously and would like to get back into training we also offer support to help you back.For details contact Kevin or Michelle on 01934 514048 or visit www.westonkarateclub.co.uk
