25 Year Celebrations

Homepage Marquee

Dunston Hall and her majestic gardens was the chosen venue for the 25 Year Anniversary Celebrations. The day started with the first guests arriving at 11:00 hrs. The schedule for the day was as follows, photo shoot with all the SMA Instructors, a short Black Belt Display which included Kima Seh Punches and the performance of Koryo Hyung. This was followed by the SMA Demo Team performing for Members and their Guests. Thereafter, we all enjoyed a BBQ supplied and served by Dunston Hall. Drinks flowed from the personal Bar all afternoon, an extremely competitive game of rounders set the theme for after lunch activities ! Girls V Boys, needless to say the Boys errrrrr Won !!! Ha ha !!! And finally, the highlight of the day, the draw for the winner of the Sliver Ticket, with the prize likely to exceed the value of 1000.00, depending on grade and commitment of the winning student the audience waited with baited breath ! And the winner is ......LEWIS COLLYER...... Ordinarily Lewis trains at the Long Stratton and Norwich ‘Sportspark’ Venues with 5th Dan Master and  Senior Instructor Chris Hemstock. However with his Silver Ticket expect to see Lewis at many other Venues over the next 12 Months !
