46th KUGB National Championships 2012 -5th May

46th KUGB National Championships (2012) - Senior Male Individual Kumite Winners

The KUGB's 46th National Championships took place on Saturday 5th May at the National Indoor Arena in Birmingham. The competition attracted participants from all parts of the United Kingdom and Ireland with elimination matches taking place throughout the day on twelve contest areas.

The finals started with the introduction of the KUGB's Senior Instructors and a minutes silence was held in respect of Randolph Williams 6th Dan who recently passed away. Sensei Sherry then awarded the Long Standing Member Certificates to those students who have been with the KUGB for periods of 20, 30 and 40 years, which this year took the total number to over 363.

The audience were treated to two fine demonstrations; one by children from the Sendai Kushiro K.C. and one showing the application of Unsu by Hisham Saif assisted by Alex Hutton, Chris Hamilton, Sam Light and Jack Somers.

As always there were many exciting Kumite matches and a superb standard of Kata with top honours going to Holly Sterling who became Grand Champion by winning both the Senior Ladies Kumite and Ladies Kata events. Congratulations to Halewood who won both Male and Female Team Kumite events again and very well done to all those who competed, especially those who made it through to the finals.

We would like to give sincere thanks to our Referees, Judges, Timekeepers, Recorders, our numerous friends and helpers, our sponsors Kamae and the NIA staff, who together make this Championship such a special event.

Many thanks also to Mike O'Connor for the excellent photographs.
