July 2009 - Gold Winners of the Kata and Kumite Competitions

June 2009 - Sebastian's Action Trust
We are currently collecting sponsorship for our 24-hour Karate Marathon in aid of Sebastian's Action Trust. This will involve our adult karateka training from 6 am on 23 June until 6 am on 24 June. We have an action-packed day planned and our junior members will join us during the day. To donate, please visit our Just Giving site.
... and then ...
A big "thank you" to everyone who took part in the 24-hour Karate Marathon and helped raise over £7000 for Sebastian's Action Trust. It was a fantastic day that saw our adults train for 24 hours and our juniors for up to 12 hours. If you missed the juniors performing a display, Sensei Wright and Adam demonstrating control on an unsuspecting parent or the adults performing Hien Nidan to YMCA with the Mayor of Bracknell, you'll have the opportunity to see it all on our website soon.
Jayne Gates, founder of Sebastian's Action Trust, was delighted with the amount of money we raised which will go towards helping ill children and their families.
