EDITORS COMMENTS
In this heartwarming photo print, members of the Coventry and Rugby Korean karate clubs are captured having a smashing time while raising funds for the West Midlands Sports Centre for the Disabled. With their determination and skill, they managed to raise an impressive £1,218 through a sponsored tile and brick break event held at the Centre in Cromwell Lane, Tile Hill, Coventry. Using every imaginable karate technique - hands, feet, and even head-butting - these dedicated individuals shattered bricks and tiles into pieces. Their efforts were not in vain as they proudly handed over the cheque to the sports centre. Instructor Tony Johnson expressed his belief that martial arts have a much greater purpose beyond winning tournaments or self-defense against muggers. He emphasized that it is our responsibility to help those less fortunate whenever possible. The photograph showcases Mr. Johnson on the far right alongside jubilant members of both karate clubs with their well-deserved cheque. The mixed age range of participants highlights how martial arts can bring people from all walks of life together for a common cause. This image captures not only their achievement but also their shared passion for community involvement. Taken on January 15th, 1986, this snapshot from Memory Lane Prints serves as a reminder that hobbies such as martial arts can play an important role within our communities by fostering unity and compassion among its practitioners.
