Photos from Woodlane Ishinryu Karate Club's post ... See MoreSee Less
A selection of photos from last night’s Ishinryu Christmas Party!
After an extremely difficult 2 years of restrictions, it felt AMAZING to finally be able to get together and celebrate our achievements together!
Congratulations to the Students of the Year from Cranham Ishinryu, Woodlane Ishinryu and Rayleigh Ishinryu, and to our Dragons who were all presented with medals!
A special congratulations to the first ever winner of the THE HENRY RICE ALL OF ONE HEART AWARD, Sensei Lee Smith 6th Dan. The award will be presented annually to someone from the Ishinryu Karate Association who not only turns up at the dojo to train or teach, but to someone who continually goes that extra mile for the association.
Henry Rice is Chris Fennessy’s 2 year old grandson who was able to join us last night and help present Sensei Lee with his award.
In 2021 Henry was diagnosed with a rare, and very serious disease called Mucopolysaccharidosis II (MPS II) otherwise known as Hunters Disease. There are different versions of this genetic disorder, and unfortunately Henry has the very worst kind. Unless he gets a cure, he has little chance of seeing normal adulthood.
Currently, there is no cure for MPS II. All that can be done is to manage the symptoms and try to delay developmental damage. The good news is that Henry is receiving world class treatment from Great Ormond Street Hospital - but no matter how good this treatment – it is not a cure
There is Hope. Henry narrowly missed getting onto a clinical trial in Pittsburgh USA a few months back. There will be other trials, and ultimately there will be a cure. We are hoping for good news early in 2022. We want to be able to get Henry onto any trial, or receive any treatment, no matter where in the world it becomes available. This is why we need to raise funds.
Cranham Ishinryu plan to support Henry and Chris in raising funds for Henry so watch this space for how we can all help! ... See MoreSee Less
