Rothpol can bring readers this update, in the convoluted story of the Kazoku Karate Club. Our story involves the bit of it being run by Ian McAllister, Ellen McAllister and Barry Dodson.
There is another bone fide user of the name Kazoku, the main organisation, that was in the process of throwing Ian McAllister out for misusing his skills, acts of aggression and violence towards others, the reasons. Sounds familiar? This is the same man who was granted the lease!
Barry Dodson, Deputy Mayor of Rotherham, does not emerge from this with his reputation intact, he is exposed as a rather spiteful, petty and nasty man who uses his position to bend and break the rules to his own advantage. The story of how the lease was obtained demonstrates this in spades. He has also emerged as a racist, a most serious of accusations as he is due to by Mayor next, a more unsuitable person would be difficult to imagine, as Rotherham’s first citizen?
Ellen McAllister, it should not be forgotten was guilty of a racially aggravated assault occasioning actual bodily harm! A hospital visit was necessary for the victim, who was too much of a gentleman to fight back.
Barry Dodson and Ellen McAllister are continuing to run the club together, despite all of the problems with the allocation of the lease and their definite unsuitability to work with children and the unsuitability and safety of the premises?
What of Ian McAllister, the leaseholder, and the only person cleared to work with children by the DBS? Barry Dodson and Ellen McAllister have not, as far as we can determine, been subject to clearance by the DBS.
Ian McAllister cannot currently go within an exclusion zone of the Club, imposed at Rotherham Magistrates, as Ian McAllister will be appearing at Sheffield Crown Court on 22nd April! He has been charged with racially aggravated criminal damage and witness intimidation! Prison awaits? DBS clearance invalidated!
