Over the last 3 years MKKC has gone from strength to strength and to see so many students carrying on with their chosen martial art is a wonderful thing. We both feel so privileged and humbled that our students and their families have chosen MKKC to be their club.
We decided 2019 was the year to give something back to the community. Karate isn’t just about fighting, it goes way beyond that.
On 31st January the MKKC students took part in a charity event whereby they completed various kata over the course of the evening, then enjoyed buying (and eating) many cakes afterwards.
With the support of our club’s members, their families & friends, and our sister clubs at Newport Pagnell & Stony Stratford we raised money and collected food to give to the MK food bank.
After all the donations were totalled up we raised an amazing £740.00, and along with the food donated by students, family, friends and work colleagues the MK Food Bank received a rather large donation of both food and money.
This was dropped at the MK Food Bank on 26th February, where Miss Beecroft and Mrs Weir were lucky enough to receive a tour and learn all about what they do, and how much they are in need of donations like ours.
We are so proud of what our little club has achieved for such a worthy cause.
In the words of karate’s founding father, Gichin Funakoshi, “make benevolence your lifelong duty. This surely is an important mission”.
