5 Year Award

This award was created in order to recognise those students who have taken their karate seriously enough to continue studies for at least 5 years in our club. As the clubs were only founded in 2002, 2007 was the first qualifying year, so we (Steve)designed a small badge to celebrate the achievement and we started issuing them in 2008.
