Matsubayashi Shorin Ryu International Karate: Our work shop day was held in Kilglass Dojo on Sunday last. The day was a huge success with Sensei Koeppel and Sensei Smith, two of the highest ranking karate masters in the world in attendance. A huge thank you to all of our students who attended on the day. A number of our students were unable to attend due to competing in the All Ireland Community Games Final of  u-11 tag rugby and our club would like to say well done to all of them on their achievements. We look forward to seeing you all back at training this week. Remember June is our grading month and only those students who attend classes will be eligible for consideration for grading. Congratulations to Rachel and Johnathan who made their first Communion last week and were inadvertently omitted from last weeks notes. Club training times Monday 7-8pm and Friday 7.30-8.30pm. New students are always welcome. For further information please contact Ann on 087 9248816.
