The day started at 9.00 am with around 80 competitors and around 100 spectators, some new to karate and good turn out of members both current and retired coming back to support. The atmosphere was electric, very competitive athletes and a great family feel to the whole event.
Probably the best championships held to date, with so many participants getting involved in different areas, helping to make this a successful day. Really pleasing to see junior students coaching the peewees and senior students helping to officiate with parents volunteering to manage entries and seating arrangements for the event. SEF First Aid Assistance were providing first aid cover for the fourth year running.
