Seniors can do karate too!
It was a pleasure to welcome Ireen Potter into the studio to talk about Shotokan Karate.
Ireen will be celebrating her 72nd birthday this year and is a sensei or teacher of karate. She is specialising in teaching karate to veterans, people over 60.
Ireen explained what a sensei, dojo and karate are and gave her rationale for teaching older people karate.
Karate isn't all high kicks and punching and for people over 60 can be a great way to increase fitness, balance and self confidence.
