Masters Course June 2015

The NKF Masters course was a great success and was well attended with some people travelling from as far as Norway and Austria just to attend the course in Aberdeen.     It was a rare opportunity for Karate students to train with some of the worlds best Karate instructors and get insights and tips to achieve perfection in the performance of Kata and in winning at Kumite.

Chris Davidson was presented with an award by Ronnie Watt at the course in recognition of his dedication to karate and in helping with the organisation that goes on behind the scenes. Chris recently became a qualified WKC referee and has been instrumental in organinsing the NKF squads foreign trips which is no easy task.
