The Karate Youth Initiative is proud to announce further success
at the recent International JKA Scotland Gasshuku held over the
weekend 29th - 31st August 2014.
Two students namely Heather Johnston and Jodi Adamson passed
Shodan to become the latest in a long list of students who have
achieved their Black Belts with the Initiative. These
students have been training with the club for a number of years
and their success is down to the girls hard work and continued
support from their families and instructors.
The Karate Youth Initiative wishes to congratulate not only
Heather and Jodi but all students who continue to train hard to
achieve this high standard.
Pictured here with Jodi and Heather is Olivia Warnock who passed
her black belt last year with the initiative and together form
the Karate Youth Initiative Junior Girls Kata team.
The Karate Youth Initiative has returned to the home of Shotokan
Karate in Dunfermline when it relocates to the Carnegie leisure
Centre in Dunfermline. Since 1977 it was where Sensei Gordon
Williamson 5th DAN JKA learned the skills and disciplines
associated with this art under Sensei Jim Wood MBE 6th DAN JKA.
Founded in 2005 this club set new boundaries for Karate in that
all fees were paid for through fundraising and over the years
won many awards for its services to Karate. The club was
awarded charity status in 2008 (SC039618) and still to this day
continues to subsidise its students training needs.
Due to restructuring, the club was forced to move out of its
permanent home at Dunfermline Police Station in March 2014 and
into the Carnegie Leisure Centre where it is based today.
Classes for all students are only £2 per session and once
registered and licensed (subsidised if required) all new
students are supplied with a free karate suit.
If you think Karate is too expensive think again and come along
to the Carnegie Leisure Centre and give our classes a try.
We pride ourselves on being able to supply the highest grade
instructors in the area coupled with access to the best
facilities. There is also modern canteen facilities available
