Happy Father’s Day from Bushinkai

Bushinkai’s chief instructor Simon Keegan went to visit his dad, Metal Tiger Academy headteacher David Keegan for Father’s Day, taking along five year old Poppy and nine month old Edward. Of course a family gathering wouldn’t be a family gathering without some martial arts, so here is three generations in their Karate Gi having a bit of fun in the surroundings of Dave’s bamboo. Happy Father’s Day everyone!
