I am pleased to announce that we are hosting the 2012 Scottish Karate Alliance Championships on Sunday 29 April at Kirkintilloch Sports Centre.
This is a reflection of the positive reputation our karate club has both in Scotland and in the rest of the UK.
This is a great opportunity for all Zanshin Kai Scotland students to compete in a karate competition at national level in their local community.
Therefore I am inviting all interested students from white belt and above to compete.
There will be both kata and kumite events for all levels, although I do not recommend that students under 8 years of age participate in the kumite.
All students, and their parents for those under 16 years of age, should notify their Sensei if interested. I would encourage all students to participate in this opportunity.
From January 2012 a special class will be run monthly leading up to the competition. These classes will cover everything a competitor needs to know and will be supported by seniors students who already participate in competitions.
The classes will run from 11am to 12 midday on the following Saturdays;
- 28 January
- 25 February
- 24 March
- 21 April
at a cost of £3 per class. Attendance at these classes is compulsory for those wanting to compete.
Wishing you all a happy 2012.
Shihan Ken Davis, 7th Dan
