We are really excited to let you know that our 2nd Annual Club competition will be held on Saturday 10th October from 12.30pm at EP School (so nice and local).
We have a new category this year, aimed especially at higher grades, but all grades may enter and this is our display category. Juniors may demonstrate a range of choreographed take downs (like the Turtle power display at our 15th Anniversary!) or perform an individual weapons display. (However, please speak to your instructor about safe choices of weapons, so no flaming nunchukas!).
For those new to the club, our Karate competitions are balanced between being all inclusive and maintaining a competitive element. The two main categories are Kata and Kumite (free style semi contact fighting). ALL members can enter either event as we have a number of categories including categories for students from our nurture lessons. We will send out more details about what we are looking for in these categories in coming weeks.
We also have categories for Team Kata and our unique Parent and Child Team kata, so please ask about these.

Sensei John Bower 5th Dan started Karate back in June 1986 at The Sheppey Karate Club and trained there until he gained his 6th Kyu, before moving on to train at Sensei Steve Evans dojo under the K.U.G.B thus enabling him to have access to train with the Senior Japanese Instructors at that time i.e. Sensei’s Enoeda, Ohta & Kawasoe. He continued training until he gained his 1st Kyu always striving to improve his karate. Having done the rounds John return to his original dojo and continued his training under his original Sensei Arthur Wallace 7th Dan were he gained his 1st Dan under the Thames Grading Panel. Always eager to learn more he was awarded his 2nd & 3rd Dan's under the I.S.K. & J.K.A. England, during this time he decided to open his own Dojo in Queenborough, Sheppey; and registered with Glen Wrights K.S.K.C and gaining his 4th Dan during that time. The club ran for several years were John was awarded his 5th Dan under the KSKC Grading Panel in November 2008.
