Despite bad weather causing a few transport difficulties, an exceptionally good turn-out was experienced for the clubs annual childrens tournament on Saturday 19th February 2005. Gold, Silver and Bronze medals were awarded in a total number of 14 events. Senior members and Instructors also gave various demonstrations throughout the course of the day.

Entrants competed in the “Kata” (formal exercises) and the various forms of “Kumite” (sparring) relevant to age and grade. Emphasis was placed on good basic techniques and body movement that are most important in effective defence and attack situations. This gives the youngsters a more practical approach to self defence in the long term, rather than “sparring for points”.
