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

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.

Firstly many thanks for an enjoyable National Grappling event yesterday. Suffice to say we all had fun and look forward to the next competition.
I am running an event myself in St Neots, Cambs, and I wanted to invite every IMASA club. It is not a competition per se but rather a gathering of like minded martial artists. The event is to be held for charity and I am asking a £10 donation from each person accordingly.
It will be held on Sunday 20th November at St Neots Town Football Club.
It will last from 11am to 5pm
The event is called the 2016 UK Bullshido Throwdown.
Like minded martial artists can gather and spar with anyone they choose under mutually agreed rules for a duration of their choosing.
