Evening Echo feature on the 4th November 2013 when the club successfully graded under Soke Hirokazu Kanazawa and Kancho Nobuaki Kanazawa at the SKIF Ireland Grading and Training Seminar.
Sensei Aaron Kenneally 4th Dan SKIF received a worldwide certificate of appreciation for years of service to Shotokan Karate-Do International Federation HQ in Tokyo Japan from world renowned Soke Hirokazu Kanazawa 10th Dan SKIF (Supreme Instructor of SKIF Worldwide). This is a great honour for Sensei Kenneally who is currently the Treasurer for SKIF Ireland the largest karate organisation in Ireland and has been training in Karate for the last 28 years representing Ireland several times at European and World Championships.
Sensei Kenneally runs the Bushido Karate Club in the Douglas Ballet Theatre and specialises in teaching Traditional Shotokan Karate-Do to Kids. Students from the club took part in the SKIF Ireland National Grading and Training Seminar in Cork over the weekend under Soke Kanazawa 10th Dan SKIF and Kancho Nobuaki Kanazawa 6th Dan SKIF.
All his students passed their examinations with flying colours which is testament to the hard work they have put in over the last 6 months and their high standard. One student in particular Cormac McCarthy-Hann just earned his brown belt and will now begin his training with the SKIF Ireland National Junior Team in preparation for the SKIF European Championships in Germany 2014 and the SKIF World Championships in Venezuela in 2015. Training at Bushido Karate Club is every Wednesdays 7pm-8pm and we are now accepting new members in our Karate-Kids class aged 4+.
