Karate Demonstration

On the 21st of November a group of 6  Year 4 children from Beech and Birch class were asked to take part in a karate demonstration at Dawney School in Bookham.

There were lots of schools taking part and the morning was full of fun and excitement.

We had to sit and listen to the rules, then look and copy moves shown to us by the karate instructor. We had to take off our shoes and socks before starting the warm ups, using our arms for blocking and feet for kicking, before being shown more karate moves. We were then allowed a break.

My favourite part was kicking and punching the black blitz cushion, my friend Joel said his best bit was “learning to defend myself”.

   

The karate instructor was calm, patient and made us all laugh. He also made sure we knew that karate was ONLY for self defence!

Everyone had a good morning and learnt a lot! I would definitely think about doing karate as my new hobby.
