This weekend is very busy with two events on for our club. Whilst most of our members will be training on Saturday morning, a few of our competitors will be competing in the 4th Gateshead Youth Championships.

On Sunday, we are hosting our club grading at Josephine Butler Campus with Sensei Andy Sherry, 9th Dan, where many students will be grading. A reminder that Sensei Sherry is not in the North East very often, so this is a fantastic opportunity for our members and other KUGB clubs to come along and train. Good luck to everyone grading! #proudtobekugb #kugbfamily #kugbkids

A fantastic photo of Sensei Enoeda and Sensei Sherry from the National Championships at Crystal Palace. We don't know what the smiles were about but we're guessing it was a demonstration between Sensei Bob Poynton and Sensei Terry O'Neill, which was always a crowd pleaser 😀.

We were looking for a photo that encapsulated the spirit, the power, the personality of Sensei Keinosuke Enoeda on what would have been his 83rd birthday, but we couldn't choose just one. Instead we'll be sharing some with you during the day.

If you knew Sensei or had the opportunity to train with him, you will remember that he was larger than life. Whether it was his booming voice coming around the corner at Crystal Palace or his laugh when he found something funny, often a joke that nobody else got.

He is still very sorely missed and very fondly remembered by so many of us. ©️ Bernard Rose Photography, all rights reserved, this watermarked version for non-commercial use if credited.

#FamilyFriday
This week it is the turn of Senshuken Shotokan Karate Club's Izabela Newman and mum, also called Izabela.

Izzy (junior) now 13, started training in December 2014 and her mum joined in August 2015.

Isabela told us "After Izzy's first taster session with Sensei Jack Somers, she was totally hooked on karate. She loves it and is working hard ready to go for her black belt grading this year.
She has competed and won the Individual brown belt kata at the Central Regions Championships this year." Izabela added "I joined because I was looking for a suitable exercise that would help with my back problems and after seeing a few parents training I was encouraged to give it a go and I noticed a positive effect almost immediately." Izabela and Izzy really enjoy training together and have made lots of new friends. Izzy said "All the members of the club are very supportive. The karate sessions are brilliant for stress relief, increases our flexibility, coordination and fitness levels but most of all our confidence. We are proud to be KUGB." And we're pleased to have Izabela and Izzy in our #KUGBFamily.
