Our squad did the school proud, with many competing for the first time in kumite.
The girls kumite team: Amy, Lauren and Ava were inexperienced but managed to hold their own; discovering techniques that would yield many points. It was Daniel that showed the most experience on the day with competent, graceful movements and well-executed techniques. He bought the male team to a 2-1 victory. (Henry, Matty and Daniel)
A 1st place for Amy in the Kata, and her points secure Captaincy for the next event.
A 1st place for the pairs: Lauren and Ava, giving us our 3rd win
Silver for girls team kumite (mentioned above) and Natalya secured our 2nd silver in Kumite. A well deserved silver for Joe in the indivual kata.
Plenty of 3rd places ensured a 4th place overall and plenty of scope for improvement.
Well done team. With plenty of competitions next year. Send us a message if you want to be involved.
Regional Team events in January.
