KDS UK 50TH Anniversary

This year marks the 50th Anniversary of Karate-do Shotokai in the United Kingdom. To celebrate this milestone we will be holding a special formal dinner at the Banqueting Hall in Cardiff Castle. The evening will include a welcome drink reception, bespoke 6 course meal and cultural entertainment. We will also have various guest speakers and a special presentation showcasing how KDS UK has developed over the past half century.

Spaces are limited and will be offered on a time served/grade order basis to UK members. To avoid disappointment please register and pay through the members’ area of the site. One ticket for the event will cost Fifty Pounds to be paid in full at the time of registration. From 1st September 2016 registration will open to all current KDS UK members. The deadline for applying will be 21st September 2016.

This landmark occasion is a once in a lifetime event within the KDS and whether you have been practising with us for a lifetime or just a short while, it will truly be a night not to be missed.

We sincerely look forward to sharing the evenings celebrations with you as we look back over fifty years of Harada Sensei’s life and his organisation, Karate-do Shotokai.
