The Scottish Karate Governing Body is proud to announce that Davy Coulter has been awarded an MBE in the Queen's Birthday Honours list 2013 for his services to karate.

Since founding Sport Karate Sakai Karate Davy has consistently coached and nurtured Scottish, British, European and World champions in the sport of karate.

David Coulter 7th Dan is the Chief Instructor of the Sakai Karate Club. He began his Karate journey in 1969 at the Kisan Karate club in Kilmarnock with John Kerr (who has since passed away). He then moved to the Kobe Osaka Karate Club in Glasgow in 1974 where his instructor was the renowned Tommy Morris. Dave later opened a branch of Kobe Osaka with Ivy Rennie. In 1979 Dave left the Kobe Osaka Club and in the same year founded his own club naming it the Sakai Karate Club after an area in Japan.

The Sakai Club began in the Buchanan Centre then moved to the Shanks Hall, then another move to the Arts Guild and finally to the present address, the Grand Hall in Kilmarnock, in 1984.

The Sakai Karate Club has also expanded over the years to be an association of clubs under the banner of Sport Karate Sakai. This association is a full member of the Scottish Karate Governing Body. The clubs are throughout Ayrshire (Ayr, Kilmarnock, Darvel, Mauchline, Hunter Centre Kilmarnock)Shortlees (Kilmarnock) and main Dojo St Josephs Liesure Centre Kilmarnock.

His family and Scottish Karate are extremely proud and would like to congratulate Davy in his MBE award.

Attached on the PDF documents are the details of the forthcoming SKGB Kata Championships.

The competition for 2011 will be run as three separate style championships, WADO-RYU; SHOTOKAN; and SHITO-RYU. There will therefore be a Scottish Champion for each category in their respective style. The semi finalists from each category will then go forward to the “All Styles” Championship. Each style will be responsible for judging their own group and selected judges from each group will then be responsible for the “All Style” finals. In the team and pairs events all competitors will compete in an all styles category only.
