It gives me great pleasure to announce that we have 2 newly qualified ESKA Instructors.

On Monday night Sempai Aidan and Rennan successfully completed their final assessment to become official Karate instructors of ESKA.

Sempai Aidan and Rennan Tilbury have been assisting Sensei Steve teaching at the Ickleford club for the last 4 years. Both Aidan and Rennan are passionate about their karate and put everything into their teaching. It is great having 2 individuals that are so dedicated to their training and enjoy passing on their experience to others, as part of the club.


Sadly both will soon be departing us for university, but not before there biggest challenge to date… Running the club whilst Sensei Steve is on holiday. Sempai Aidan and Rennan will be covering Sensei Steve’s holiday and then depart off to university at the beginning of October, but I am sure they will be back for Christmas! I know they will definitely be there at the ESKA Dinner & Dance to collect their Instructors certificates.
