What a massive success the weekend was for our club. For the first time in the clubs history we managed to hire a coach to take us to Blackburn, England for our annual joint course with Blackburn SKI Budokwai Shotokan Karate club. Sensei Kevin Clark 6th Dan was assisted by Sensei Paul Giannadrea 5th Dan and Robert Steggles 5th Dan from JKS Scotland in teaching around 60 people who signed up for the course. The course was brilliant value for money with three top instructors teaching us for 4 hours on the Saturday and then a further hour on the Sunday followed by the under 16 contest all for £10. After the course the Blackburn lads took the adults out for a social evening with the kids all being invited to Sensei Kevins house. This course is more than a great Karate event it is a friendship building course. A massive thank s to all who supported the course esp the local JKS club who have started building close training ties with Blackburn Budokwai and the JKA Germany team students. heres to next year back in Perth.
