1st Sunderland Karate Championships 2010

5 Jun 2010

On Sunday 20th June the 1st Sunderland Karate Championships took place at City Space, Sunderland. Although the event clashed with Fathers Day it didnt stop 130 competitors and nearly 200 spectators supporting the event. The competition was aimed at encouraging students to gain experience in competition at a local level. Many of the competitors attending the championship were experiencing competition for the very first time. We were particularly impressed with the amount of adults competing for their first time.

The day ran smoothly thanks to the excellent help from the referees, timekeepers/recorders and our paramedic, we would like to take this opportunity to thank all of them for their excellent work on the day, which allowed competitors to perform to their best. Two competitors, Chris Hamilton and Maya Burns, were particularly outstanding winning both Kata and Kumite in their respective events, making them grand champions.

With the great success of our first championships and the amount of positive feeedback we have had from competitors, spectators and club instructors, we are now looking forward to the 2nd Sunderland Championships in 2011. Many congratulations to all competitors.
