Calling all Karate-ka
The next event on our calendar is the annual competition held at the Stevenage Hombu. This is always a great occasion and is a fantastic opportunity for all our students to gain confidence and show what they can do.
The competition will be held on the 29th October at Stevenage Leisure Centre. All entrants will receive a medal just for taking part. The cost is £4 per event entered. (You are able to enter more than one event.)
Real Ale Tour – Another Year
Following another successful ESKA Real Ale Tour, here is a short write up of the few highlights that can be remembered!
We must also compliment and thank both Matt (‘driver’, who only got lost once) and Fiona (‘head mistress’ who made sure all the “kids” got round safely) and without whom the tour would not have been possible. They also coped well with the heckling and the later than expected finish.

On Saturday the 30th April ESKA held its Summer Dan Grading at Little Staughton Village hall in Bedfordshire.

I would like to thank all the grading examiners who worked tirelessly from 10.00am untill 6.00pm and to congratulate all the following students that passed.
