40 Years Shotokan Karate

Clubs New Dan Grade Sunday July 12th 2015


Mike Stilgoe started training in 1975 at the age of 25 under the KUGB (Karate Union of Great Britain). Graded 1st Kyu in 1979 and continued to practice regularly until 1980. A few years later when he was working in London Mike continued training at Marshall street baths under Sensei Enoeda but on an irregular basis as work would allow, and moved his family to Isle of Wight in 1984 and started training at an ESKA club in Sandown for two years but never graded further.Mike took his grandson to begin karate at Newport IOW Shotokan Karate Club in 2012 to be trained under Sensei Malcolm Bradley and Sensei Mick Lambert. Sensei Bradley suggested he resume training to get fit again and although the idea appealed to Mike he found it very hard work at 62. Having trained for three years as much as possible Mike finally became fit enough and eligible to grade for Sho Dan on July 12th 2015 at a black and brown belt course in Plymouth under the SEKU organisation. Last October Mike started a karate club in Bembridge working with the Bembridge Youth and Community Centre to encourage others to take up karate at the earliest age they could. His view on future training is never to give up and just keep going, since karate is an art that knows no age limit and I encourage anyone to give it a try if they want to improve the quality of their life.
