St Annes special session

We have been invited to attend a special session on Saturday 14th Sept at the St Anne’s on Sea Dojo with sensei Ian Garside 5th dan. If you can make it it should be a good one.  Ian will also be leading the special Bo classes on Sunday 15th Sept at our Haslingden dojo.

ICC 2019 Sunday 13th October

Rossendale Shotokan Karate Club’s 8th Interclub Competition is taking place on Sunday the 13th October at the Adrenaline Centre Haslingden, Lancashire and we are confident that this years event will be both our biggest and best one yet! The event has grown year on year which is a reflection of the support it has received from the clubs in the North West (and beyond!) and the quality and spirit of the competitors who attend.We look forward to welcoming you and your squad to Haslingden for what promises to be a great days competition for novices and experienced Karateka alike.

As always we will be seeking support for Referees, Judges and table officials, so if you or any of your club can help out on the day, your assistance will be greatly appreciated.

For any queries regarding the competition or individual events please contact Rick Payne at rick.payne@gmail.com. Please note there will be no team kumite events due to time constraints related to the hire of the venue.

Many thanks for your continuing support, and we look forward to seeing you in October!

Very Best Regards
