Kyokushinkai Karate WITH just over six weeks un­til the Bri­tish Open/Cup of Europe event at the K2 Arena in Crawley, the fight­ers’ train­ing is in full swing. The two Oban com­peti­tors, Mark Welsh and Amy Camp­bell, are push­ing their lim­its on a daily ba­sis. Katie Mac­Don­ald

from the Lochgilp­head club has un­for­tu­nately picked up an in­jury and is now look­ing doubt­ful for the event. Katie may now have to fo­cus on the Scot­tish Open in Fe­bru­ary.

The clubs had their an­nual beach train­ing ses­sion on Sun­day Au­gust 30 at Kil­mory beach, not the warmest day of the year but ev­ery­one worked hard and en­joyed them­selves.

The train­ing was fol­lowed by

a beach bar­be­cue. New starters are welcome at the club un­til the end of Septem­ber, af­ter this the train­ing will be geared to­wards the next grad­ing test which will be in De­cem­ber.

No starters are taken on in the three months prior to a test to give the ex­ist­ing stu­dents con­ti­nu­ity in their syl­labus work.
