25th July was the date of this year’s Scottish Fighting Arts Society’s annual Gathering, hosted by our own, Black Dragon Scotland in Drumnadrochit. Instructors and members of the BDMAA travelled north of the border for a great day of martial arts and friendship!
Scotland’s first Kea Hand to Hand Fighting seminar was held in Drumnadrochit at Black Dragon Scotland. Hugh Lamerick and Steve Aldington of BDMAA travelled north to conduct a 4 hour training session of techniques used by military personnel on the 1st November. Along with BDS’s Kevin Shorthouse and Anna-Marie Pirie and members of the Scottish Fighting Arts Society. Special “Thanks” to Hugh and Steve for coming up and all the tea and training!
The Black Dragon Martial Arts Academy’s instructors travelled north to Ullapool, Scotland joining up with Black Dragon Scotland’s chief instructor for SFAS’s Annual Gathering. An enjoyable day was had by all, thank you to Sensei Alan Mitchell and Katy Taylor of SFAS and Sensei Ali Cameron of CSMA for the invitation and warm welcome. Here’s to next year!
Black Dragon Scotland opened on the 12th February Sensei Kevin held his first 2 hour class in Scotland, a great night of training. Special Thanks to Alan, Katie, Joe and Steve from the Scottish Fighting Arts Society for their support. Come along, first lesson is free, tell your friends!!
On the 14th January 2014, Black Dragon Scotland joined The Scottish Fighting Arts Society. A big “Thank you” Sensei Alan Mitchell and his team. Black Dragon Scotland opens on the 12th February at the Glen Urquhart Public Hall in Drumnadrochit, Inverness.
Thanks to lies and misinformation, eighteen month ago the Black Dragon Martial Arts Academy had its friendship withdrawn with a mutually respected martial arts association, the Scottish Fighting Arts Society. Due to recent events, the SFAS have come to realise the truth and have extended the hand of friendship once more. The Black Dragons are please to accept this and commend their honesty and deep regret. It is good to rekindle our friendship and we looking forward to further collaborations in the future.
The Black Dragons presented a Multi Style Martial Arts evening with our friends from the Scottish Fighting Arts Society and Goshin-Jitsu Association Scotland on Friday 17th February 2012 at the Romiley Liberal Club. This was followed by a meal at a local restaurant. The evening was great success and we would like to thank everyone for their participation and look forward to see them all soon.
All the senior instructors were invited to Inverness on the 8th of October this year to teach at the annual Scottish Fighting Arts Society Seminar, representing both B.D.M.A.A and C.Q.C.S. We would like to thank Sensei Alan Mitchell and his team for their warm Highland hospitality and making our visit to their home town both enjoyable and memorable.
February 28th, an enjoyable evening had by all at the Scottish Fighting Arts Society’s 3rd Birthday Multi-Style Martial Arts Seminar. Participants from several different schools, including Sensei Kevin from Black Dragon Scotland, had their own mini session to demonstrate their particular style. Thank you to Alan and his team for organising the event.
