It used to be July 2002 and Scott Langley had just graduated from the Japanese Instructors’ Course in Tokyo. He returned to Europe with a mandate to build a strong karate group in the United Kingdom and Ireland. In a decade that witnessed the implosion of most groups, he built up one of the most largest organizations in Europe: but his success at home set him on a collision course with his seniors back in Japan. Karate Clever chronicles how, through diplomacy and cooperation, he managed to discover a new option to steer one of the crucial successful karate organizations active as of late. That is the real story of one man’s journey through the highs and lows of the latest karate world.
