We would like to wish all BSKA members and their families a Happy Christmas and all the best for the New Year
There will be a BSKA meeting on Sunday 8th December at 10am at The Samurai Centre, Zortech Avenue, Kidderminster. This will be followed by a weapons course 11am – 2pm with John Nelson teaching Escrima and Kubotan.
We had another successful course this year with Sensei Tsukada. The course this year concentrated on the basic fundamentals of punches and blocks. Three katas were also covered over the weekend. These were Shinpa and Kosukan Sho on Saturday and Sochin (Shitoryu Aragaki version) on the Sunday. Following training on Friday and Saturday we met up for an enjoyable meal and a few well earned drinks. It was good to see karateka from Shotokan, Shitoryu and Wadoryu training alongside our Sankukai practitioners over the weekend. Thanks to everyone who supported this year’s course and a big thank you to Sensei Tsukada for a very informative and enjoyable weekend.
Two new clubs have joined our association. Barry Houghton and Wendy Lowe-Houghton run an established Sankukai club, BWH Martial Arts Academy in Halesowen. Simon Trowmans has recently opened his new Sankukai club, BSKA Wombourne. We would like to welcome Barry, Wendy, Simon and their students to the British Sankukai Karate Association and wish Simon all the best in his new venture.
