David did a basic Gedan Uke Kata, followed by myself doing Rohai and padwork and the second 5 minutes Paul did a single nanchaku demo and myself did the double nanchaku's. To finish off we then did a shinai combat on a point scoring which got everyone buzzing! The grand total money raised was £1600!
