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.
