Karate bash to kick off in Stirling

A MAJOR karate conference is coming to Scotland this summer.

The IOGKF European Gasshuku, which was secured by Scottish black belt Stevie Biggar with help from the Business Tourism Unit at VisitScotland, will be held at the University of Stirling from July 28 to August 1.

More than 600 goju-ryu karate experts are expected to visit the city for the conference, which is being held in Scotland for the first time in 30 years. The event, which will include seminars for top martial artists, is expected to generate around £1.2 million for the economy.
