The 32nd Karate Summer School took place at Lancaster University from the 6th to the 10th of August. The course was very well supported with students attending from all of the home countries and as far afield as Nigeria and France.

The Instructors, Andy Sherry, Terry O'Neill, Bob Poynton, Bob Rhodes, Billy Higgins and Frank Brennan divided the students into groups depending on grade and then taught each class on a rotation basis, covering Kihon, Kata and Kumite as appropriate.

Senseis Ian MacLaren and Ivan Birch conducted some very interesting  seminars on Karate history and physiology respectively; Ian also gave instruction on the use of the Bo to the various classes.

Senseis Sherry and Brennan  provided two extra classes for those students taking Dan gradings in the near future which were very well attended and appreciated.

A superstars competition between the Dan and Kyu grades involving Basketball, Goal Scoring, Sumo, Break Sprints and Tug of War proved to be very popular and was again won by the Dans.

Gradings were held at the end of the course and many congratulations to the following students who were successful.
