Having returned fitter, stronger and with more karate knowledge than they left with! It’s great to be back – we’re all looking forward to doing it again next year now!
Kata tournament on Thursday went well….
Congratulations to everyone who competed at the Kyu Grade Championship! A huge number of us (26 in total!) went along to Prestatyn to compete and spectate. A massive well done to everyone who competed! Ikkyo came away with lots of shiny medals and trophies, with winners……….
Congratulations and well done to those who tried out for the KUGB Welsh Squad selections in January. Selections were as follows: Kerry Lyn Thomas – Kata Squad. Steven Bailey – Kata Squad. Meleri Pryse – Kata Squad and Kumite Squad. Graham Hunt (University) – Kata Squad and Kumite Squad. All have trained particularly hard leading up to the selections and showed considerable skill and martial attitude.
A good turn out saw us coming home with some good results. Scott Fleming won gold in the Men’s Kata, and also won silver in the team kata alongside Tim Hudson and Kerry Thomas. Scott, Tim, Nat Wright and Mark Reading took bronze in the Men’s Team Kumite, and Nat and Samuel Pike took gold and silver in the ippon kumite. Well done!
We’d also like to say a big well done to Anya, Rosie, Christopher and Ryan for also doing very well but unfortunately came home empty handed… this time. Let’s hope you get the luck you deserve next time.
It was an excellent week. Pete Bonser gained his instructor’s qualification on the Tuesday. Thursday’s kata competition went well with Steve Bailey taking second in the black belt kata, Scott Fleming taking first in the brown belt kata and Kerry Thomas, Tim Hudson and Iwan Roderick came first, third and fourth in the colour belt competition.
As usual the course was top notch, mentally and physically exhausting but extremely rewarding and inspirational as always.
No Golds but a good day nevertheless
