Our 2016 Kata Championships were well attended with 200 karateka attending the event at Cults Academy on 29th May. They have evidently been working very hard to achieve higher standards for their next grading at the Masters Course on the weekend of the 26th June. Many students have shown great improvement.  Some will know where they still need to improve if they are to make it onto our international squad for 2017.   It has been particularly impressive to see the improvement in many of our adult students. Many who never would have imagined themselves as Karateka just a short time ago.  There is also great promise coming up through the younger end of the ranks. Several of the children showed that they have got what it takes and delivered excellent performances during the competition.  

            This year’s awards were presented by the Very Reverend Professor Iain Torrance TD (Chaplain-In-Ordinary to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II). We were honoured to have him present our students with their awards and were very pleased he was impressed by the hard work, discipline and dedication that goes into the competitions and the quality of the performances.  He said later of Ronnie Watt and the students-

 

"I salute you as a person of remarkable vision...I utterly applaud the organization you have created……. I thoroughly believe in the discipline, dignity, sense of achievement and courtesy you teach young people……..I really was astonished by your achievement and I am so very glad…I am immensely impressed. “  I.Torrance

 An excellent endorsement from a great man.

Ronnie Watt would also like to thank all those involved for their hard work and dedication.
