FEKO Senior National Championships 18th September 2011
Dudley Shukokai travelled to Harvey Hadden sports centre in Nottingham for the FEKO senior national championships.
Kata was up first and the club got off to a great start with wins in the team event the pairs event and Mandie and Daniel Read winning the mens and ladies sections !!..... Our B team also took the silver medal and our B pairs team the bronze. Georgia Burgess won the 13 to 14 section with Liam Jackson earning a well deserved bronze in a hotly contested 15 to 17 years section. Vanessa Stokes also earned herself a bronze medal in the ladies kata.
On to the kumite and Georgia Burgess again took the gold in the girls 13 to 14 section while Daniel Read won the mens section. Liam Jackson fought his way to the final of the boys 15 to 17 section but had to settle for the silver medal in a great final. Both our ladies and mens teams won gold in the sanbon and rotational team fighting and our younger teams didn't disappoint either with the boys 15 to 17 team taking double gold in the same events. Our girls team earned themselves a good silver in the same age group. Our veteran fighters also fought well to earn themselves a bronze medal each !!! As usual a fabulous day for our competitors, many thanks to FEKO and everyone behind the scenes who helped make it a great day !!
