Congratulations Liz on topping the world and on the birth of your child.
Our little Ninjas class is for under 5s and has been running for a couple of years now. We have had Ninjas progress to the older class and some are now competing in tournaments.
The class is based around play and games and enjoying the training with techniques and exercises. It is fun and mayhem at times, but we love it.
We had the kids Halloween training party last night. Lots of fun and spooky goings on. The gym was kitted out like a haunted house and we dis some Zombie sparring, Coffin races and many games in the dark. It was great fun and we still got some drills and exercises in.
The half term camp happend this week.
Three days of training and sparring 10am -1pm every day.
We started with warm ups, and some games etc and tehn went into training and grading work followed by a break and then some sparring practice. Evert day was finished with nerf wars!!!
A great camp. It was fun and we saw some great improvements from the participants.
Chris came down and did a seminar for the kids and adults. He worked loads of drills for pulling and timing the opponent. Everyone loved the session and we had great fun and learned a lot of good tips that we will put into practice in the next tournaments.
Well done John Ayres for getting his Purple belt in light con discipline.
He had to perform all of the past grading techniques plus new ones. and rounds on bags and pads and many rounds of sparring to achieve this result Congratulations

A huge thank you to everyone who came along and supported our quiz night, we hope you really enjoyed yourselves. We are just checking stock but hope to give you an update on the amount raised soon. Thank you once again to Sharon Louise Ally for your help and support and also to Nicky for putting the quiz together. Thanks also to Ron our quiz master for the evening and Harriet for her fabulous face painting. Our thanks also to all the companies and individuals for their donations, we are really humbled by your generosity.
There’s a few who will tell you, i was really worried about how it would turn out last night but for once I’m truly lost for words and thank each and everyone of you from the bottom of my heart.
The countdown is on as Charlotte heads out to Venice in two weeks time and she will continue to train hard under Ron and George in the meantime. We are very lucky to work with these awesome coaches who constantly push and develop everyone within BKO and who through time and dedication have developed Charlotte’s fighting where she is now traveling across Europe and competing at the highest level.
Thank you from The Evans family.
