IKKI Referees/Judges/Time & Score Keepers Workshop
The IKKI ran two workshops in 2015, most recent on the 7th November. It was attended by almost all the karateka who attended in March. Another workshop is planned for March/April 2016. Keep practising in the dojo! Many thanks to students who turned out to perform kata & kumite for the workshop and to the non-karate people interested in participating at tournaments. Well done to all.
