KUGB National Youth Championships - 2nd July 2016

Childrens team kata

The 2016 KUGB National Youth Championships took place for the first time at the new Queen's Park Sports Centre, Chesterfield on Saturday 2nd July.

The event, which is for karateka under 21 years old, attracts competitors from all over the British Isles and Ireland. In attendance were both International Competitors and those new to competition. The importance of this championship in the KUGB calendar cannot be underestimated as it provides an opportunity to focus on our young talent as they develop. For those on national squads it provided a platform to show to their coaches their progress and to hopefully catch their attention as selection for the European Championships in Greece gets closer.

The eliminations began at 10 am and, as always, there were some brilliant performances in both Kata and Kumite to entertain the enthusiastic crowd. The technical standard of the Karate and the spirit of the competitors in the Finals was excellent. In each and every final the passion of those competing to win gold was compelling. With the finals coming to a close, as usual, the spectators left enthusiastically talking about the outstanding performances they had witnessed, the champions crowned and the future of so many talented young athletes.

We would like to thank Dudley Wheatcroft and his team of helpers, the Sports Centre staff, all of our Referees, Judges, Timekeepers, Recorders and Medical Staff for their help and support during the day.

Sensei Sherry would also like to congratulate all of the young competitors for their enthusiasm, high standards and strong martial spirit that made the championships a great success. Well done to you all.
