This year 2012 as Philippe has had limited practice, as Finsbury dojo has closed due to refurbishment. Therefore Philippe has handed the BKAA reins over to James O'Donnell.
James has accepted and is welcomed as the BKAA Chief Instructor and will now begin looking at the way forward for the association.
In 2011 the BKAA evolved as David Currie amicably resigned his post as Chief Instructor due to life and work commitments. Philippe took over the role during 2011 and I thank him for continuing to maintain the BKAA.
