Ray Morcomb demonstration

On Friday, as a reward for his sensational win at the first demonstration competition in Paris, Ray Morcomb was asked to perform his kata Unsu, in front of a 17,000 crowd.

Ray demonstrated his kata in such a way that even the kata experts present were amazed at his performance. He was given a standing ovation lasting over 5 minutes for this never before seen performance by a person so visually impaired.

Ray, and the other 35 participants of Karate for persons with disabilities, were superb and the high respect they got from everyone will be a great motivation and a huge step forward for this category.
