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

What a great photo taken on Sensei's wedding day at Richmond Registry Office.
Sensei Charlie Naylor was Sensei Enoeda's Best Man and the photographer was trying to make it look like he was dragging him into the Registry Office but they both started giggling and this was the result.

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.

If you were at Crystal Palace when 'this' happened you will remember it.
Sensei Bob Poynton was badly injured so a 14 year old youngster called Frank Brennan had taken his place.
As the magazine article says "Harris came out looking confident against his young opponent and was caught completely by surprise by Brennan's fast mawashigeri into his head.
Harris then dashed into Brennan in an effort to equalise, instead he ran into a very fast Ushirogeri which caught him in the stomach and gave Brennan the match.".
