SSKC Competition 2018

There was a great turn out for 2018 with 62 competitors in all, leading to a total of 135 entries in the 19 events.

A time for karateka from our local clubs to experience competition in a semi formal atmosphere and use the experience as a stepping stone to national and international events.

Many congratulations to all the Cup and medals winners and all karateka for supporting the event.

The Cups will be engraved with the winners names and distributed shortly.

SSKC have two new Sandan

Top day training with Kagawa Shihan in Nottingham on the 10th March 2018.



Very proud to announce that SSKC have two new Sandan.

Congratulations to both Matt Beard and Steve Furniss.

Both have worked consistently hard over the last 12 months to prepare.

Matt has had to balance his instructor responsibilities with his own training. Many thanks to Caroline for the support that she provides Matt giving up family time, please make sure he spoils you now.

Steve increased his training to 4 times a week in the last few months, which is a massive commitment from someone that travels from Hull. That is over 300 miles a week just travelling to karate! He has been Nidan for over 20 years and has had to adapt to the JKS style and learn a few more kata. This has not been easy, but Steve has remained determined.

I would also like to thank Matt Price Sensei for the support he has given Matt and Steve both at SSKC and at LKA Hombu dojo training sessions, Osu!

12-hour karate-a-thon

12 hour karate session!

A few words from Kathy from our club - 
"I have 2 knees and 2 ankles and they are all in working order today... phew! 
Most of my muscles are complaining but I am not broken.
12 hours of karate straight yesterday where the training came from the England squad. 
Think at one point delirium kicked in but it was a fun day, all be it very tiring! 
Glad I completed it, thought I would need at least one break but I carried on. 
12 hours straight, I impressed myself. And I'm still walking!
This is the team that went from my karate club.

Left to Right : Bex, Simon, Sarah, Matt, Berhan, Warren, Han, Kathy, Emma and Paul.

Congrats to all that attended, Osu!

2017 Christmas display


The 2017 Christmas display was a great success. Unfortunately only just over half of the members made it for the photo, Xmas commitments :-) 

We had a three generation display from Son, Mother and Grand-father Luke, Sarah and Ian

Heath Waters was awarded the Trevor Jinks Cup for his many years of hard work and determination in his karate journey to date.

Nevis took home the Budo bear from the "name the bear" competition, many thanks to Tash for organising :-)

Tommy and Heath gave a great kumite demonstration.
