Sports Therapy Scotland will be in Ingliston, Edinburgh this September as JKS Scotland play host to The JKS World Karate Championships.
It is a 2 day event and the team will be looking after the welfare of all the competitors involved in the event, taking care of any knocks and bumps incurred over the weekend.
There will be squads participating from all over the world with the home countries being well represented hopefully with the chance of bringing in a medal or 2.
As a 1st Dan exponent of Shotokan Karate in a previous life I personally will be looking forward to this weekend.
It’s been 15 years or so since I trained and competed in Karate reaching the dizzy heights of 3rd place in the East of Scotland Kumite (sparring) Championships before having my “career” halted with a couple of well placed kicks!
It is a great sport and i still practice and benefit from some of the mobility and flexibility drills to this day.
Should be a fun weekend and well worth popping in to have a look if you are in the area. Bring the kids and let them enjoy and ancient and skilled martial art.
