Ken Cooper's funeral is to be held on 13th February 2020.
Ken was a coach and referee within the Area for many years until health problems limited his activities. He was responsible for the development and running of Knottingly Judo Club producing recreational and competitive players to a very high standard. The club always made visitors welcome.
He worked with the West Yorkshire committee and organised Area competitions at Knottingley to a very high standard. Ken always gave assistance on and off the mat.
Ken contributed for many years to the development and growth of the Area and was always the epitome of Jigoro Kano’s philosophies

With some tweaks for next year, hopefully the event will start to grow again in the new smaller team format.Read more ...
