Chelmsford SKC News Article

On Sunday 23 June, Sensei Andy Sherry (9th Dan), Chief Instructor of the Karate Union of Great Britain (KUGB), was at the Chelmsford Dojo, Dovedale Sports Centre.

The day started with Sensei Sherry teaching Black and Brown belts only and then this was followed by a training session for All Grades.  KUGB Clubs from all over the region were in attendance and we thank them for their continued support. 

Following these training sessions the Kyu Grading examination began.  The Grading was well attended with over 80 Students from Ipswich Higashi SKC, Shin Gi Tai SKC, Sudbury SKC and, of course, Chelmsford SKC.

The grading was a great success so a big 'WELL DONE' to everyone who participated.  

There will be a Award Ceremony on Sunday 30th June at the Chelmsford Dojo where Sensei Dot Naylor will present our successful students with their certificate.  More details can be found on our Events page.
