Report from JKS England
The JKS England annual Summer Course was held over the weekend of 21st and 22nd of July in Nottingham. It would prove to be a great test for the feet in some inescapable heat. Alan Campbell Sensei, Head of JKS England formally introduced the instruction team for the weekend and with commitments on the Sunday, the Saturday would see a seminar dedicated solely to Paul Newby Sensei. Paul Sensei is a true martial artist; combining great talent and enthusiasm, his career has led to the heights of being a WKF World Karate Champion and having success as a professional boxer. Paul Sensei is now an instructor in the highest demand for seminars covering a wide variety of martial arts with both striking and wrestling/grappling ones in his comprehensive arsenal.Before Paul Sensei got his session underway, Matt Price Sensei intervened to honour Alan Sensei on his 40th year in karate. A special presentation (which included just a wee bit of whisky) was made following the generosity of JKS members throughout the country. Graciously received, the final gift was a 40 year old whisky, a very special age and a fitting acknowledgment of Alan Sensei’s achievements over this period. Congratulations Alan Sensei!
