27th November 2016 – Yanagi Kai Club Championships

comp 16

Forming Yanagi Kai Karate Association is one of the things I’m most proud of in my karate life.  Our club championship this year showed me how far that we have come in such a short space of time. This is only the second time we have been able to run this event and learning from the first year, the event ran like clock work, starting at 10am finishing around 4pm. This was mainly due to all the weeks of preparation and administration. Thanks to Sensei Haley Williamson and Sensei Peter Bibby and his team of referees. I would also like to mention everyone making sure our younger members got to their correct tatami, correct colour belt, tied and finally coached, this made a huge difference to the smooth running of the day. This certainly made my day a lot easier and gave me a chance to speak to parents where we had lots of positive feedback.

Group_2016Like I have said in previous reports,  it wouldn’t be fair to single any individual out, when we have so many students competing and so many outstanding performances. I would like to congratulate all the guys who competed for Sale Dojo for the first time, I know how extremely daunting this can be and how stressful it is for parents.

I would like to take the opportunity to say a huge congratulations to Sensei Tony Tutty and Sensei Andy Blake on their award of Yondan (4th Dan) and  thank them for all their hard work over many years. I would also like to inform everyone of Sensei Blakes promotion to the Sale Dojo Dan Grading Panel.

On a personal note on an emotional day, thanks to all the Senior instructors, membership of Yanagi Kai Karate Association and the English Karate Federation on my award of (7th Dan) I’m humbled.boys_yanagi_comp16

One small piece of bad news, due to budget cuts in Trafford Bough Council the George Carnall Leisure Centre will be closing some time next year, we think it will be around April 2017. I’ve provisionally booked for November but they can’t confirm this at the minute, so if anybody knows of a suitable venue around the local area, please can you let me know. I’ve contacted various venues in Manchester area but the main problem is the lack of tiered seating, if we can’t find one locally, we may have use Sensei Mark Holding’s venue in Penrith.

(If you what me to post any pictures of you or your children, please can you email Karen or myself and we’ll post your images on this site. saledojo@hotmail.com).
