This year on 3 December 2011, as every year, was the Telethon to raise funds for medical research to find treatments and cures for children with neuromuscular and other rare illnesses. The Karate-Do Club Limeil-Brevannes participates in this fund-raising every year by holding a karate competition for the children in the saturday karate classes. This year, however, the activities were expanded to include demonstrations for the children and their parents of other martial arts aspects including karate kata and bunkai, kumite, kobudo and iaido.
