As we approach the end of the year and festive season, we wish to thank you all for your continued support during the past year. It certainly has been an eventful year for SKCE and has presented us with many challenges which we are delighted to say we have faced and overcome any problems encountered.
We now have developed a much stronger and united organisation with everyone giving SKCE their fullest commitment and time. There is still much hard work and effort required during the forthcoming years but 2019 has been successful.
A special thanks to Sensei Eric, our hard working and inspirational, Chief Instructor who with his group of Senior Instructors has taught us well and we are beginning to benefit from the various technical training courses which we intend to maintain and expand during the forthcoming year.
We also thank all those instructors from other Shotokan groups who have helped us during the year at Championships.
Finally on a personal note Gerry would like to thank all those people who sent their best wishes during his recent heart operation and we are very pleased to report that recovery is proceeding slowly but surely.
We shortly hope to be able to issue the proposed diary of events for 2020 and look forward to your participation.
It remains for us to wish you and your families a very happy Christmas and New Year.
Gerry Grey Eric Pich
Chairman Chief Instructor
