KUGB Youth Championships

Saturday 02 July 2011

The KUGB Youth Championships were held at Chesterfield on Saturday 2nd July 2011.  There was a tremendous turn out - the sports hall was packed with competitors and spectators!

Our club was represented by Elliott, Thomas, Holly, Aoife, Paul and Ellie.

All the children showed good spirit in the Ippon Kumite events, especially Aoife who was unfortunate not to have proceeded further.

The children all entered the kata events, but were not successful.  The standard at the competition was generally high and it served to show the children that they need to work on their attention to detail in the kata.  Holly was knocked out of the individual kata at the quarter-final stage, losing in a split decision to the reigning under 3rd Kyu Children's Kata champion from this year's Nationals.

So - no medals this year, but the children enjoyed the event and are now determined to do better at the Northern Region Championships later this year.
