2019 One Day Course

Food for Thought book cover
Food for thought is described as a combination of life, karate, cooking and disability.  The forward of the book was contributed by sensei Ticky Donovan OBE.

Available from Amazon for just £3.99
 
When 21-year-old David went for a dive while working on the island of Bermuda, he had no idea that it would change his life. An accident paralysed the chef and 2nd Dan karate black belt from the shoulders down on the same day that he was informed he would compete in the 1980 world karate championships and inaugural world games.  
 
David, who had previously worked at the Savoy and Churchill hotels in London, is telling his life story in Food for Thought.  The book documents the highs and lows of his life, often in a humorous manner, and has a recipe section at the back to which some of the best chefs in Britain have contributed. Gary Rhodes, Marco Pierre White, Gordon Ramsay and Gino D Acampo, amongst others, have added their delicious recipes that are accompanied by mouthwatering pictures.
 
Food for Thought will show, in the face of much adversity, how David rebuilt his life in a way he never thought possible after his accident. In a Dinner Party section of the book, he also highlights the achievements of 10 other sporting tetraplegics, some of whom lead extremely remarkable lives despite being paralysed, with each choosing their ideal guests for a dinner party. The book will also educate the hospitality industry about catering for disabled diners in the future.

Kate Kawacinski - 2019 English National Championships

Gidea Park and Hornchurch Ishinryu took a small selected squad to the English National Championships this weekend (13-14 July), held at Ponds Forge International Sport Centre. Coaches for the weekend were Sensei Steve Karwacinski and Sensei Chris Karwacinski.

First up, and the only competitor from Ishinryu competing on the Saturday, was Ryan Buckley, competing in the male Individual Kumite 12-13 years +45kg category, hoping to build on a good performance given at the British Championships last month. Ryan gave a very exciting performance, showing great improvement even from his last competition. He was unable to come out on top after a very tight match, having a few decisions not quite going his way along with some contact warnings being given against him. A lot more to come from this young athlete, watch this space! A very good performance at his first National Championships.

Sunday consisted of all the 14 years+ categories. Ciaran Buckley and Kemi Olofinjana were up first in their male and female Individual Kata categories, 14-15 years. Both again gave very solid performances, showing consistent improvement from the last competition but were unable, this time, to progress past the first round. Ciaran came back with a passionate performance in the repo charge, having lost to the eventual Gold medallist of his category, but was unable to progress further into a medal match.  

Kemi was then back on the tatami in her individual and open weight kumite categories. Showing a marked improvement in her confidence and self-belief, Kemi progressed through the first round winning a hard battle against good opposition. Kemi then lost to the eventual Gold medallist and was unable to progress through the repo charge rounds to reach a medal match.

Kemi was not finished yet however and gave another much improved performance in her open weight category losing a very close match in her opening round. Overall a fantastic experience for Kemi across both her kata and kumite categories and a great set of performances for her first English National championships.

Ciaran Buckley was up next in his individual and open weight kumite categories again hoping to build on some good performances given at the British Championships last month. Ciaran had a very intense match with the eventual Gold medallist in his 1st round, finding it just too difficult to chase the win after going down earlier in the fight. Ciaran did not let this affect him however and came back in the repo charge and bronze medal match with great confidence and belief in himself and his coach. Ciaran scored some brilliant techniques, listening very well to all tactics given to him by Sensei Steve and was able to secure the win and a very well-earned BRONZE medal at his first English National Championships. A great achievement and a testament to this young man’s commitment to his training.

Ciaran, on the back of this medal, then gave a very mature performance in his open weight category winning his first round but unable, in this category, to progress into the later rounds.

Overall a very successful day for this young athlete, claiming his first medal at such a big championship. Congratulations Ciaran!

The final competitor, representing Ishinryu, saw Sensei Kate competing in both her individual female kumite category -68 kg and Open Weight category. Sensei Kate progressed through to the finals which were held later in the day for her individual category and then turned to competing in the Senior Female Open Weight. This category had many members from the English National Team, under 21 and Senior. Kate won through 4 rounds to progress to the final, where she won the GOLD medal and first English National Title of the day for Ishinryu.

Sensei Kate was then part of the ‘spotlight’ finals held at the end of the day- winning her final 8-0, with one minute still left on the clock, and her Second English National Title of the day.

Special mention was also made, by the Performance Directors for the EKF, of the achievement of Sensei Kate along with her team-mates regarding their Gold medals achieved at the Commonwealth Championships, in South Africa, at the end of last year.

Overall a very impressive few days of performances for such a small squad representing Ishinryu. All athletes did themselves, their club and association proud! A special thanks to the coaches Sensei Steve and Sensei Chris for their time and effort throughout the weekend, giving the athletes great encouragement, guidance and support at the most important English Competition of the year. Congratulations to all athletes on such superb performances and results!

2019 - Kate is the 4 Nations Karate Champion

2 GOLD and 2 BRONZE MEDALS for Gidea Park and Hornchurch Ishinryu students at the most recent competition attended by the Hornchurch based karate club. Coaches for the day were Sensei Kate Sensei Steve Karwacinski- Senior instructors at Gidea Park and Hornchurch Ishinryu.

The day started with the pairs Kata category. This is a very difficult discipline as it involves not only performing to your best individually but to stay in time with your fellow competitor for every move throughout the kata. Our two students Olowasegun Olofinjana and Jack Fennessy were our dynamic duo who performed excellently just missing out with a score against them of 2 flags to 1 to make it into the next round.

The next performances saw these two boys up once again in their individual kata categories alongside Daniel Galpin, this being his first ever competition. Daniel performed a very accomplished and aggressive kyu grade kata to win 3-0 and sail into the next round. He unfortunately bowed out in the second round but gave an extremely heartfelt performance for his first competition.  OlowaSegun and Jack also performed two very good katas but unfortunately came up again slightly older and more experienced competitors this time.

The next performance was from Ava Rouse, another first-time competitor who gave an extremely strong and mature performance just losing her second round in a 2-1 decision to a very experienced competitor performing a much higher ranked kata. Ava, however, still managed to pick up a BRONZE medal and showed she is definitely an athlete to watch for the future.

The last Kata performances of the day saw our 14 and 15 year-olds Olowakemi Olofinjana and Ciaran Buckley take to the tatami. Showing their growing experience and reaping the rewards of their hard training and commitment both athletes really dominated this category. Both won through 3 rounds to reach the semi-finals, where we started to think it might be an Ishinryu face off in the final. However, this was not to be as Kemi bowed out after a very close match losing 2-1 in her semi-final. A very well deserved BRONZE medal achieved by Kemi, such improvement in both her karate and confidence was definitely shown in her consistently impressive performances given. Ciaran showing true heart won through to the final, and in a nail biting match against a very good competitor was given the win in a 2-1 split decision, claiming the GOLD medal. A truly impressive performance from Ciaran.

Onto the fighting categories we saw Olowasegun head to the tatami first. In a very close match Olowasegun was just unable to gain enough points to beat his opponent, although showing some very promising moments during his fight. Jack was up next and in a very big category failed this time to hit the ground running, but again showing some moments of true potential in his round only losing the match 6-5.

Ryan Buckley was up next, in the 12-13 year old category. Being drawn up against some very tall competitors, Ryan battled through to win his first round scoring some excellent points during which his technical ability shone though. Unfortunately, although scoring the first point and gaining senchu, Ryan could not hold onto the lead in the second round just losing the fight in a very close match.

Kemi was up next, again in a category filled with a lot of experienced fighters. Kemi was unable to win through her opening match although giving a heartfelt and gusty performance.

Ciaran Buckley was our last fighter of the day. In a truly mature and impressive performance Ciaran won though to the finals beating his three opponents with some beautifully timed and executed techniques. He was then in his second final of the day, and unfortunately due to his opponent securing an injury early in the match was unable to fight to the end of his final but after a long day was able to claim his second GOLD of the day. Ciaran is a true testament of what rewards hard work can bring with patience, persistence and perseverance so well done Ciaran!

A successful day all round for our junior Ishinryu competitors. Whether returning with a medal or not – the hard work, commitment and passion of these young athletes shone through. Your senseis and association are very proud of you all!

2019 Kyu Grade Competition

Gidea Park & Hornchurch Ishinryu sent a small squad of five Junior athletes to the Kyu Grade National Championships on Sunday 13th January 2019 representing Ishinryu held at Leicester’s Morning side Arena.

Sensei Kate Karwacinski was present as Senior Coach for the Squad who, although had an extremely long day competing, did both themselves, their club and association proud.

The competition had over 1,000 entries and our junior athletes participated in both the Kata and Kumite disciplines.

OlowaSegun Olofinjana was first up for the squad performing a very strong Kata, just losing out on flags to a slightly more experienced performance from his opponent.

Jack Fennessy followed next, reaching the second round and again narrowly losing to his opponent in a 2-1 split decision- a great performance from Jack.

Our more experienced and older squad members took to the tatami next with both Ciaran Buckley and Olowakemi Olofinjana both giving two fantastic performances and narrowly losing to more experience karateka on the day.

Our competitors continued their drive into their kumite categories.

OlowaSegun Olofinjana gave a heartfelt and passionate performance in his 8-9 year kumite category winning his first match after scoring a fast head kick and defending his lead right to the final buzzer- unfortunately he bowed out in the next round being up against again a slightly more seasoned fighter.

Jack Fennessy fought with great heart and aggression beating his first round opponent 6-2 with lovely timed punches, again narrowly losing the next round to a more experienced fighter.

Ryan Buckley, brother of Ciaran Buckely mentioned above, was up next and although fought a very clever and tactical fight was just beaten on the final buzzer giving away too many warnings and frustratingly being disqualified. A good fight and with a little more experience could easily have passed into the next round.

OlowaKemi Olofinjana and Ciaran Buckley were our last two competitors of the day.

Kemi, fighting a very experienced girl in her category, managed to secure a 0-0 draw narrowly losing 2-1 on flags with referee’s decision! A frustrating loss but very impressive performance from Kemi.

Ciaran then took to the mat as our final competitor of the day. Winning his first round, Ciaran definitely showed he was the more dominant fighter scoring some very impressive and strong techniques. After a hard fought battle in the next round Ciaran, although scoring an impressive sweep to take him into the lead, conceded a head kick which left him just losing the match.

Overall, all the above athletes, although not winning any medals, showed true heart, passion and determination throughout the day and a lot of potential for the future! As an association and club, we are very proud of their performances at such a high-level competition. Well done to all!

Sensei Kate, Steve and Chris are now focused on improving participation from within Ishinryu from grassroots to the elite at championships such as this which provide a platform to showcase Ishinryu’s future stars!

2018 News

Kate - Commonwealth Game 2018s

This month I had the honour of representing England at the Commonwealth Karate Championships 2018 held in Durban, South Africa. The England National Karate Team travelled to complete at this prestigious tournament, eager to create a good impression, especially in light of the fact that we will be hosting the next Commonwealth Championships in 2020, in Birmingham. 

After a long 3 days of competition I won through 4 rounds to reach the final of the Championships and, in winning the final fight 8-0, achieved the Gold medal and Commonwealth Karate Championship Title.

I have been doing Karate since the age of 7 years and have been a member of the England and GB Karate Team since 14 years old. The Commonwealth Gold is one of the most notable achievements within my Karate Career, to date, alongside my three European Championship Medals plus numerous British and National titles.

As a self-funded athlete these major tournaments can create enormous pressure and one always feels a great sense of achievement when all the hard training, sacrifice and commitment pays off! It was a tremendous honour to attend the Championships, representing my country and bringing home the Gold medal and Commonwealth Title.

Kate Karwacinski.

Remember that Kate’s competition activities, like other Ishinryu athletes, are fully self funded.  This means that your donations will make a big difference.

Please give generously.  Your donations will help Ishinryu competitors, like Kate, to reach the Tokyo Olympics in 2020.

 

 

Chris and Kate Karwacinski

Kate and Chris Karwackinski both compete at international level and need to attend and compete at various compulsory Olympic Qualification Tournaments to be selected.  Both are self funded.  Please support them (and Ishinryu) by donating whatever you can to gofundme

Karate has always been a passion for our family and my and my brother’s achievements to date have given us the real possibility and dream that we could represent our country at the Olympic Games in Japan 2020. The Official Olympic Qualification Tournaments, which begin in September of this year, are paramount to achieving sufficient world ranking points to achieve this dream.

Having been fully self-funded within our competition careers thus far, we have always relied on the bank of ‘mum and dad’ and in addition all of our money is directed into paying for our numerous domestic and international competitions and the travel, accommodation, equipment, entry fees etc. involved. To give some idea of the level of commitment needed to travel and compete in these qualifying competitions, we have worked to compete, this year alone, at venues as far afield as Paris and Holland to Morocco and Dubai…you can imagine the expense for two self-funded athletes. Although this is a constant struggle, we continue because we are passionate about what we do. However, with a lot of encouragement from friends and family, we have decided to ask those who felt they could possibly help us, to contribute, however little, in helping us achieve our dream, whether this is a financial contribution or, by simply sharing our story with others who may be able to offer us a helping hand.

Story to date
I was selected to represent England at 14 years old and have now been a member of the Junior and Senior England Karate Team for the last 10 years representing my country in Individual kumite, team kumite and team kata at European and World Level.  I have achieved 3 European Bronze Medals at Junior and U21 level and have achieved a Bronze Medal in a prestigious Senior Karate1 Premier League Tournament. At the beginning of 2018 I was ranked 18th in the world and am currently the highest ranked GB athlete within my category.

My brother Chris was selected for the England Karate Team also at 14 years old and has continued to gain selection for his country to date in both Individual and Team Kata at European and World Level. He is now within the top 40 in World rankings, the highest ranked GB Kata athlete across both male and female kata. He is multiple English and British Champion.

How might you help
An example of the outlay needed for two individual qualification tournaments self-funded in the last year gives some idea of the cost to each of us in simply being present at one of these compulsory and prestigious competitions. Overall cost per athlete for Dutch Karate1 Premier League – £650 per athlete. Dubai Karate 1 Premier League – £1,500 per athlete.

We both work every hour possible, whilst trying not to compromise our training regimes, in order to maintain our competition attendance. We are happy and willing to continue to sacrifice to strive towards our ultimate goal. However, we would appreciate any help you think you may be able to give us to ensure we are able to attend and compete at these compulsory Olympic Qualification Tournaments.

We would both be so grateful for any financial support or help you could offer.
