On Saturday 30th September we held the 6th annual inter-club competition with our good friends from Leeds Shotokan Karate Club (LSKC) at our York Elite Dojo. The competition also celebrates the memory of the late Senei Randolph Williams, 6th Dan KUGB. Randy was the Chief Instructor with LSKC for many years and also taught regularly at York Elite. Randy would have been very proud of the fantastic performances from both clubs but especially with the spirit, respect and friendship on display.

As usual the event was supported by many family and friends from both clubs and we'd like tothank everyone who came and made it the event it has become. We would especially like to thank everyone who contributed to the food on the day particularly Andy Coatesworth and Sarah McCreanor for a wonderful barbeque (despite the torrential rain!) and to everyone who contributed to the mountain of sweet treats available. Special mention must be made for Linda Dawson, John Sharpe, Maria Coatesworth and Caroline Poels for helping to keep things running smoothly.
