When Ohta Sensei visited Shiranamikai in July to conduct a training session and grading, what we weren’t expecting was for him to make a special presentation afterwards!
He explained that in recognition of how the club is growing, along with the development of its students and instructors, JKA England has selected Shiranamikai as its Club of the Year 2012!
Since its founding in 2009, Shiranamikai has been growing slowly but steadily. We are now in our forth year and seeing how our club and students have developed makes me feel very proud. Receiving this award is a great honour that reflects on us all. But with it comes the responsibility to keep training and improving.
