National Youth Championships - 22nd July 2005

National Youth Championships - 22nd July 2005

The Championship took place on 2 July 2005 at the Queens Park Sport Centre in Chesterfield and was attended by a record number of competitors, with a large increase on last year's entries. This is a trend which has been evident over the past couple of years and demonstrates the strength and enthusiasm of our membership.

The standard as usual was extremely high and credit must go to all competitors, not only to the winners.

Despite the record number of entries, the event finished on time thanks to the hard work of all the officials, who give their time and expertise freely.

The results were as follows:

Male Kumite 18 -20
