We’re shocked and extremely saddened to tell you all of the sudden passing of our adult member John Balmer.
John was a member of our club for many years and achieved his first Dan followed by his second Dan just a couple of years ago.
John trained in Shukokai Karate for a long time ever since he attended Master Kimuras courses in the late 70s.
John would also attend black belt gradings of members of the club to offer support which always goes a long way to settle nerves on such a big night.
A very well respected Karateka and gentleman, John attended our Cambuslang club so often he was part of the woodwork.
John will be sorely missed and we would like to pass on our condolences to his friends and family at this difficult time.
