May the forths saw HSKC take part in the annual Selby Novice Competition at Manor CE Academy organised and run by Paul Brant Sensei (4th Dan) with the aid of many of the instructors from HSKC, SSKC (Selby Shotokan Karate Club) and York karate club.
We had a strong team entering the competition this year with around 25 competitors holding around a total of 50 individual entries in Kata, Kumite and Family Kata. Spread over two areas one facing kata and the other holding kumite the competition began at 10.30 sharp.
