Practise on Monday 30th November

Hopefully this Monday we shall be able to have the practise that I intended we should have last week! Never mind, I always have a backup plan. All being well, we shall be doing some katatedori techniques. Please also bring your bokkens and a tanto (knife) if you have them.
