The Budo course actually started the day before the event with a well-attended meal in a local pub.

Everyone was on good form despite the cancellation of the sensei challenge planned for earlier that day and a good time was had by all discussing the course at Scarborough and the following days training.

It was decided that everyone would try each discipline throughout the day and by chance a theme developed from all the different sensei's.

Sensei Vince Thompson went first with Aikido, Followed by Sensei John Snaith with Judo, Sensei Trevor Parmenter with Karate and finally Sensei Wayne Mellor with Jujitsu.

Everyone agreed it was a great day with lots to learn and said they were looking forward to the next one.

Many thanks to all the instructors who gave up their time to teach and to all who attended.
