As progressive traditionalists, we like to invite guest instructors who share our vision of how great martial arts training is to come and teach us. These seminars, and nearly all of the events that our Chief Instructor John Burke teaches, are usually open to all martial artists, regardless of experience or affiliation. Here are a few of the events that we have lined up:-
Saturday 4th May 2013 - the Kick-a-Thon. The students and instructors did Two Thousand and Thirteen maegeri (front kicks) in aid of the Olivia Holmes Foundation (a charity that helps children undergoing cancer treatment and their families). Donations/sponsorship can be made at this site - the money goes straight to the charity. It was a sweaty and tiring day, with members from 5 to 65 taking part. We have sponsorship pledges of £3,200!!!
Friday 26th - Sunday 28th July - MHKA Summer Camp, Brecon, Wales. Please visit www.KarateCardiff.com to book your place. Weekend training in the open air with Martyn Harris sensei, Martyn Skipper sensei, and John Burke sensei. 3 styles, friendship and sharing.
