Four SKR sempai joined Sensei Michael in growing a moustache in support of Movember, the global awareness campaign that champions the moustache as a ribbon for men’s health.

The Movember campaign began seven years ago and challenges men to start the month of November clean-shaven before allowing their moustaches to grow for the rest of the month. Well wishers and supports then sponsor the growing of facial hair with the proceeds going to cancer research and health awareness campaigns.

Sempai’s Paul Walton, Shaun Jackson, Andy Billington and Robert Rudge along with Sensei Michael formed team Karate-Mo and raised £888 during the month of November. As a the team of 5 Karate-Mo is one of the smaller teams participating, but managed a respectable top 12% position by the end of the month.

The team would like to thank all those who supported them during the 2012 campaign and not sniggering at their d’Artagnan, Hulk Hogan or Wing Commander Mo’s.
