NIKW Junior League 31st July 2017

Belfast’s Lord Mayor, Nuala McAllister returned to visit young people at the sports club in the center of Belfast where she has many happy memories from when she was growing up as a youngster in Belfast.

Councillor McAlllister trained with Belfast karate legend Oliver Brunton and alongside Oliver’s son James who went on to become Northern Ireland’s leading karate athlete.

Oliver and James are delighted to welcome the Mayor to visit their dojo during her year in office and witness the club’s progress as they strive to equip children with the life-defining values of confidence, self-awareness, dedication, discipline and respect.

The Mayor attended the Northern Ireland Karate-Do Wado-Kai’s (NIKW) bi-monthly meeting of the junior league which provides vital experience for their young members in preparation for karate competition.

 

“Karate has so many positives for children as they progress through their formative years,” Oliver said. “It teaches them the values of dedication, discipline and respect, while at the same time building their confidence, co-ordination and fitness along with their societal skills.

 

 

 

“As a former member of the NIKW Nuala will appreciate the many benefits karate has for young people and we are delighted she has returned to visit us,” he added.
