Well Done to Roaring Tiger Karate Club
Just some news I thought you might like to know - We've been busy shooting a music video with the Karate club for a local rock band with Director Brooklyn Beckham ( David and Victoria Beckhams Son.)
The music video has just been released yesterday so i thought you might like to have a look.
There is a small clip in the middle of the video where IMASA gets a mention !
The band is called JAWS and the song is called 'End of the World'
It's currently had over 20,000 views and Brooklyn has put a trailer for it on his Instagram page which has reached over 160,000 views at the moment.
Here's some photos from the filming day to have a look at as well.
They released the song through Vogue magazine and there's an article here : https://www.vogue.co.uk/article/brooklyn-beckham-music-video-2019
I think it's been in every paper and news site including The Sun, Daily Star, Evening Standard, the Metro , NME, MTV News, and yesterday morning I had to go onto the BBC WM Radio breakfast show to do an interview about it.
Hopefully some good coverage for Karate.

Gary received a message from Master Chris Hemstock this morning, the committee of Martial Arts of Great Britain and Team GB sent this to thank IMASA; here are his words, we had a great day and night with David Lambert all on BKA Rhyl on facebook!
Oh what a night - Truely Humbled and Honoured to have received another award this year. This time from Bethan Owen, her Father Garry Julie Owen, the BKA and IMASA.
When I see the amazing work you guys do up here in North Wales, it warms my heart and soul.
You guys do so much with so little it truly is a massive achievement. You're the ones that deserve the awards, the recognition and the applause. Thank you for your kind words and your hospitality. I salute you both xx

We are the first club outside of Japan to be part of Owari Aikikai so this is a special honour for us.

IMASA Cadet Volunteer Karate Coach from North Wales, set up the Karate Club to help support fellow young carers coping with the responsibility of looking after loved ones. Despite caring for her mum who suffers from severe epilepsy, Bethan took up the sport at the age of 7 and became a black belt by the time she was 12.
In a personal letter to Bethan, Prime Minister Theresa May said:
“Your remarkable achievements at such a young age have provided an invaluable way for young carers like yourself to find fun, friendship and support through your karate sessions”
Well done Bethan from all at IMASA.
