Sensei Mick Randall has passed away

Very, very saddened to hear of the passing of Sensei Mick Randall. Mick Randall was an excellent Sensei and a friend. I will miss the training sessions and the ‘naughty’ Stella’s. Sorely missed – RIP Sensei.

Sensei Randall started his karate training at the BKF in 1964. Sensei Randall received his Shodan from Kanazawa Sensei in 1967, he was the 4th person to receive a black belt from Kanazawa Sensei in Great Britain. Sensei Randall was also a founder member of the KUGB, SKI, ESKA and Shoto.
