Whilst it is very unlikely that you will ever get to use karate in anger an article published on the BBC today based on scientific research claims that “a lack of exercise is now causing as many deaths as smoking across the world”.

Why not try Egham or Sutton or one of the many KUGB clubs closest to you. Know someone who is maybe not as active as they should be? Use the buttons below to share this post and maybe karate could save their lives too.
