I would like to show my appreciation to all the members of TASK, friends and parents who made the 30th TASK Championships such an enjoyable event on 22nd June 2019.

In particular, I would like to thank Liz Beecroft and Vicky Weir for the grand job they did organising the event. Also Les Albone the chief referee for his huge commitment, Brian Cross for his work behind the scenes and all the Dan grades who gave their time so freely to make the event the success it was.

I was especially impressed with the attitude of all competitors; their discipline and etiquette were most commendable, totally in keeping with the traditional precepts of Karate’s founding father, Gichin Funakoshi.

Thank you all – I felt privileged to be in your company.

Oss, Shihan
