The BKK is sad to hear that Sensei Alun Jones passed away on 31st August 2016 following a lengthy illness. Sensei Alun was chief instructor of Abercynon School of Kyokushin Karate and Nelson Karate Club in the 1970s before opening Cynon Valley School of Karate in the early 1980s.
He was a passionate karateka and exceptional technician. Those who had the honour of training under him will remember him for his attention to detail , dedication and strive for excellence, qualities which were then reflected in his students.
Despite leaving the BKK in the early 1990s, he is still remembered and respected as a fine karateka and exceptional instructor
