The Wkc Open Nationals 

A huge well to the Ken Shu DOjo Karate Squad today at the WKC Open National Championships 

thanks to all the Parents and the club members who came ot support the Squad 

It was fab seeing new faces and club attend the event and the the standard went up a level for sure .

i whitnessed many things that made me burst with Pride , i saw a team come together for another one for there members in the Teams kata to help that young fella boost his confidence as he was disabled , i saw another 2 team mates go up against each outher and before and after the results the respect shown to each other and warmth was inspirational , many could learn  from these two examples ! .

back to our guys we had sucsess we had disapointment but through it all you carried yourselves with dignaty , i saw 2 members come of age today also was a pleasure to see , i really am proud of you all and i mean all ..
