shotokan karate
did anyone carry on teaching shotokan karate in or around the leyland area,I taught a number of blackbelts some 25 years ago in leyland motors karate club, if possible I would like to make contact with any one still doing it and remembers me,Dave Harrison, and Colin Lister, we ran the club for many years and had many successful blackbelts under our tuition.

Hi Dave, please look on http://www.kaigankarate.co.uk, this is the club I run in Leyland, Preston, Bolton and Bamber Bridge... I think you will find that we are direct decendants of the old Leyland Motors Karate Club you ran. Amongst my students now are a few old faces you will remember well, all still training with well over 30 yrs under their belts. Kevin Christopher, Bill Beach, Mick Beardsworth.

I know Mike Johnstone well, and you may know Joe Shorrock who now runs Chorley SKC.

Oss!

RE: shotokan karate
Hello Dave, just came across your Forum thread (8 years after you first posted). I studied beneath yourself and Colin at Thurston Road from 1980 - 1985, I was 10 years old. My dad was Tony Coward who I believe used to work with you before you became a driving instructor. You were a very good instructor and very understanding and encouraging towards us young uns. I remember wondering whether you were made of bronze after sparring with you one time!

Hope you're doing well Dave, take care.
