Sensei Ed Starks, 3rd Dan, KUGB


It is with great sadness that we report the death of Sensei Ed Starks, who passed away yesterday after a long illness. Sensei Starks was the Chief Instructor of Bristol Shotokan Karate Club, an inspirational teacher to all of his students and was widely respected by his fellow instructors in the South West and beyond. We send our deepest condolences to Ed’s family and to Bristol Shotokan Karate. (The picture of Ed above was taken in October 2012 at the Special Dan Grade Course in Bath.)
