Kenshinkan Interclub Competition 2015

What a brilliant day we had on Sunday 12th July. A big thank you to all those who turned up to take part. Also a big thanks to those that came to help and to show their support for the club.

We welcomed competitors from as far afield as Middlesbrough and locally from Harrogate, Leeds and of course Otley.

If you didn't take part this year maybe you will give it a try next time. Its just a bit of fun ,especially for the kids maybe a bit more serious for the adults but not too much.

Below are some pictures of most of the competitors that enjoyed taking part in the fun. Can you recognise anyone??

“It won’t happen to me!”

I am happy to report that the "It won't happen to me " ladies self defence workshop which took place on Sunday 28th June was a resounding success. I would like to say a big thank you to all those who attended. You should be pleased with yourself because you have recognised the fact that assaults and attacks can happen to anyone anywhere and you have taken positive moves to make sure it doesn't happen to you. Well done.

Looking to the future there will be other similar workshops being offered including one which will cover defences against weapons and indeed which easy accessible weapons are available to use in the time of need.

If you are interested in any of these workshops then please get in touch with us here and we will add you to our waiting list.
