EKKA students with (kneeling left to right)  Billy Brennan 8th Dan, Salidine Fadel 7th Dan and Mick Blackwell 8th Dan.

Special seminars conducted by top Moroccan Karate Master Salidine Fadel over the bank holiday weekend proved a great success.

Classes held at the Mick Blackwell Academy and Arena Karate Academy in Needham Market were both well attended. Many EKKA Black belts took advantage of learning intricate details of Katas from three different Karate styles; Shotokan - Jion, Shitoryu - Sienchin and Gojoryu - Seipai.

During his visit to England Fadel was promoted to the rank of 7th Dan for his diligent study and resulting ability in the Art of Karate.  

Fadel was so impressed with the standard of EKKA Karate that he invited the EKKA squad to visit Morocco later this year to share expertise with fellow Moroccan Karateka.
