2nd Sunderland Championships

11 Jun 2011

On Sunday 12th June the Sunderland Karate Championships took place at City Space, Sunderland. Over 300 competitors and spectators supported the event, now in its second year. The competition is aimed at encouraging students to gain experience in competition. Many of the competitors attending the championship were experiencing competition for the very first time.

The day ran smoothly thanks to the excellent help from the referees, timekeepers/recorders and our first aid team, 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.

Many congratulations to all.
