9.11.2018 / Technical course with Master Jerzy Jedut (VIII. dan)
Antiaging master Jedut
Populistic title, I know, but…. I practiced under master Jedut for my second time. First time was in Znojmo twelve years ago. We went there to see Jaroslaw Suska.

Most of them were beginners as usual. Highest belt on this grading was red, which was achieved by successful competitor Ondřej Faltin. All attendants were successful at the grading and we congratulate them. Next grading will take place at the end of our summer camp. Green and blue belts should generally aim to improve stances, dynamics of techniqu
