SSKC Christmas Display

Another Year is nearly over and it is time for the Xmas display, presentation of the Trevor Jinks Cup and the taking of the annual photo.

It was a great honour for Lucy to presented her cup from Sensei Trevor who the cup is dedicated to. The cup is awarded in recognition of effort and diligence in karate.

What did Lucy do to be awarded the cup?

Well Lucy joined us with Josh Hartley from a background in Wado-ryu karate and found the transition to Shotokan difficult. She was unsuccessful in her first grading and achieved a temporary pass in her last grading. Despite this she was keen to take part in the JKS open in Nottingham and came away with a bronze medal!

Lucy - You have kept going with your karate when most would have thrown the towel in, we salute you - "Ote-garni- rei" (We bow in respect to those we train with". I hope that those that follow in your footsteps that find the way difficult will be inspired by your efforts.

Unfortunately we had 6 people missing for the photo but I was very pleased with the turn out.

If you have been training for a while you can click on the gallery and see what you looked like in every year from 2004 onwards.

A very impressive front row for our club, It would be nice to see a couple more Karateka kneeling in seiza in the front row next year, keep training hard and set your sights high for 2009.

Merry Christmas and Happy new year to you all. Osu!
