Advanced Grade Only Classes – We run Advanced Grade only classes at The Dojo Norwich which focus specifically on advanced content and Dan Grade syllabus to help get you ready for your Shodan grading. These classes follow the usual 3-week rotation covering Kihon, Kata and Kumite to ensure each element is taught equally. These classes introduce a specific Kata rotation programme focused on each of the four Sentei Kata. These classes run on Mondays and Thursdays from 7:30-8:30pm at The Dojo Norwich.
