Our newest Shodan at Browns Bay Dojo - Alvin Li
Alvin Li, with Sensei Sean at right, has been training for many years for his Shodan and has been very diligent and patient, especially with the COVID lockdowns. He was graded at the end of March 2022. All those who have helped him on his journey are very proud of him, and look forward to training with him as he progresses still further with his karate.
We have classes on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday evenings, plus train on Saturday mornings.
We like to encourage families to train together and therefor have great family package deals available.
