Sensei Keith Edwards 1st Dan Shotokan Karate
Bill and Sue Hooper retired from work in 2014 and as they wanted to persue some world travelling this left a problem of possible closures for the club outside of school holidays. To overcome this problem and to allow the members of the Buntingford Karate Club to be able to train all year round one of the senior members of the Karate Club was asked if he would take the lessons when Bill and Sue were away. Keith Edwards, 1st Dan Shotokan Karate, readily agreed and he is now our third Sensei. Keith is very experienced in Karate and trustworthy. He has been part of this club for a number of years and is the ideal choice as he lives very locally to the dojo and can attend on both the Tuesday and Thursday nights that the club is open.
Keith is now fully insured to teach at the Buntingford Karate Club, has a CRB (Criminal Records Bureau) check already carried out which allows him to work with children and young people, and he is now recognised by Edwinstree School where we train as a key holder.
