Many students give up karate for various reasons. For some it’s due to injury, for others its just life has got in the way. Whatever your reason the great thing about karate is you can pick up where you left off, at any time or any age.

Today, 19 March, marks a year since we said farewell to our good friend and instructor Keith Thomas. Last year many of us were able to remember Keith at his funeral. The SSKA have decided to honour Keith’s memory by naming an award after him at our upcoming competition.
The Keith Thomas Memorial Award will be given to the person who shows great sportsmanship and encompasses the true spirit of karate on the day.
