Successful Shikukai Karate Training/Competition and Grading.

Posted on Updated on

Shikukai Karate – Do International was founded F Sugasawa Sensei, its chief instructor. It now has a nucleus of clubs run by dedicated instructors under his guidance. Saturday 6th July saw many of the instructors coming together in Essex to train the children as one group. 

   

It was a real honour for us to have Sugasawa Sensei oversee the day. The children behaved impeccably and were so respectful in all that they said and did. It was amazing to see children from the different clubs working and training together as one.

 

The day began with a joint Kata training session where different instructors worked with the children on their chosen Kata.

This was followed by a competition, which involved some of our youngest Karateka taking part for the very first time.

The results of the Kata Competition were:

Pinan Shodan:   Gold         Jenny Clarke  Woodham Walter

                          Silver       Nate Ogier     Hertford

                          Bronze    Charlie Ogier  Hertford

Pinan Sandan: 

                          Gold        Aidan Everitt  Woodham Walter

                          Silver       Holly Stallard Woodham Walter

                          Bronze    Luca Riedling Woodham Walter

Pinan Nidan:   

                          Gold          Oliver Cornwell     Woodham Walter

                          Silver        Taylor  Perrin         Woodham Walter

                          Bronze     Madeline Hardey  Hertford

Kihon Kata:      

                          Gold             Christopher Coates-Jones   Woodham Walter

                          Silver            Katie Taylor                           Woodham Walter

                          Bronze         Aiofa Riedling                        Woodham Walter

                          Bronze         William Dines                        Woodham Walter

 

The day culminated in a grading session for children from 9th  Kyu to 5th Kyu.

Again, the children were commended for their positive attitude.

A day of real teamwork. A credit to the instructors and Karateka of Shikukai.
