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.

Grading Results 10th July 2017

Congratulations to the seven SSKC members that graded tonight at our "sweep-up" gradings for those that could not attend our main June course.
The grading panel was headed by Sensei Paul assisted by Sensei Matt and Steve, many thanks to Warren Sensei who instructed the rest of the class while gradings were on going.
A big step for Sam to his first senior grading - well done.
Luke and William both had solid performances and were promoted a full grade to 8th Kyu.
Daniel was finding like many that the transition to Yellow belt is a big step a little more work on stances and kata practice required but performed strong enough to gain a temporary 7th Kyu grade.
Damon had a solid performance in kihon and kumite but lacked a little speed in kata and was graded to 6th Kyu.
Parveen much like Damon solid performances in Kihon and kumite, but the kata was a little slow and could do with some further polishing, overall a 5th Kyu pass.
Imaan struggled a little to find the step change that is looked for from 5th to 4th kyu, timing of foot and hand coordination requires a little work, and kumite and kata both lacked zanshin (martial spirit and feeling) again like red to yellow belt this is a big step and Imaan managed to secure a temporary 4th Kyu grade - well done.

So in all 5 full grades and 2 temporary grades, but all 7 progress forward in their karate journeys, Osu!
