I have ALWAYS enjoyed the social side of what we do. In The UK after every grading it was the perfect reason to all get together to celebrate, especially after a black belt grading. We hosted many weekend seminars, and the saturday night would be a gathering of all, enjoying the company of fellow instructors and students, from ours and visiting clubs. We have had some great times in and around Europe. I am keen to keep the social side of what I was fortunate to be a part of in the UK, here at our clubs. Christmas parties, mid year maybe a trip down to the beach,the chance to bring everyone and their families together is very rewarding.
