Poulton Karate Academy is a traditional Shotokan Karate Club based in Poulton le fylde, England. The club is managed by an active committee of Dan grade Karateka who are Japanese trained. The aim of this blog is to extend the club to a wider audience promoting training, gradings, news and social events that you as visitor may find useful.
We train at Hodgson Academy, Moorland road, Poulton Le Fylde every Tuesday and Thursday from 7pm.
Last night the club heard of the recent passing of Karateka Antonio Martin.
Antonio was a genuine lovely young man who trained hard but was always polite and a very happy person to be around.
In order to concentrate on his business commitments, Antonio left Blackpool and Wyre Karate Ryu several years ago to open his own successful restaurant in Bispham with the help of his father Pablo.
Pictured is Antonio with his father during his training years at Blackpool and Wyre Karate Ryu.
Poulton Karate Academy's thoughts are with Antonios family during this difficult time.
