Hoshindo Karate gets government recognition!

We had a surprise visit to our karate school program at St. Mary’s School, Moss Side, Manchester by the minister of state for schools, Nick Gibb MP.

The minister spoke to the children about their karate and their different colour belts and asked them about their aspirations in karate.

The children were fantastic and trained really well. Sensei Steve told the minister the karate children were a credit to the school and went on to thank the school for providing us with the facilities and environment to succeed and achieve.

Hoshindo Karate runs an after-school club at St Mary’s School in Moss Side, Manchester, every Tuesday, Thursday and Friday, 3:30 – 4:30pm.
