Camp Cymru

On August 4th Barry, Bettws and Cobra Kai junior students attended a 3 day Summer training camp held at Amelia trust farm. The students were given excellent tuition from Sensei Phill and Sensei Richard McCann. 

Over the weekend the students were taught a vast range of training from Knockdown and Clicker training, to weapons and Kata training and even some Tameshiwari (breaking)......and also a little fun with a water fight and a water slide followed by a BBQ. Once again this event was a huge success for the organisation and its students had a great time. 

This annual event is run every summer and gives the juniors a great experience at a very affordable price. 
Wales Interclub Tournament

On 22nd July, Bettws Kyokushin held an interclub tournament for Wales Kyokushin, and was supported by Barry and Cobra Kai Karate clubs. Everybody who attended had a fantastic day, made new memories, and great friends. All three clubs are looking forward to the junior camp in August at Amelia Trust.

Thank you to Senpai Lee for hosting a great event.
