Session 3 – 12pm-1pm

The course will be led by Sensei Scott Langley.

Sensei Scott Langley, 6th Dan, is one of the youngest people ever to win the JKA World Championships and has over 25 years experience practicing and teaching karate.
Sensei Langley has been practicing martial arts since the age of 5, however, he started his karate career proper in 1986 under the instruction of Howard Milson, a senior member of Kodokai and one of the very few 5th dans in the UK at the time. He trained hard with Howard and Kato Sensei and gained shodan in 1992. After travelling to Japan with Kato Sensei in 1993, Scott started university in Staffordshire and trained on a daily basis with him.

During this time he assisted Kato Sensei teaching around the UK and Europe. Scott also competed regularly; winning, both in kata and kumite, the National Championships five times, European Championships three times, and the 1996 JKA World Championships in Moscow. Building on this success, Sensei Langley travelled once more to Japan in 1997 and started to train full time at the JKA (Asai fraction) Hombu dojo.

Under constant pressure from the instruction of Asai, Abe, Yahara, Kagawa, Isaka, Yamaguchi etc, Sensei Langley went from strength to strength and along with Yasuhisa Inada, entered the course in 2000 and became the first instructor’s course class of the newly formed Japan Karate Shotorenmei. Two intensive years later, Sensei Langley graduated from the course and became the fifth non-Japanese person ever to do so.

We welcome him to Beckenham and look forward to him sharing his knowledge and experience with us.

Each session with Sensei Langley will be £10 and the number of spaces is strictly limited to 30 places per session. We will also be inviting other clubs from JKA to join us on that day from Chelsea and East London and places will be on a strictly first come first served basis.
