Queens Park Sports Centre, Chesterfield hosted the 2011 KUGB National Youth Championships. Competitors numbers were increased by 10% on the previous year (which was up 25% on the previous year) and the standard was again extremely high.
Sendai Kushiro selected a team of 16 members for the event and had some excellent results to go along with some brilliant performances. Megan Dent had an excellent day winning Gold in both junior ladies Kata and Kumite events and Beth Nicholson won Gold in the girls Black Belt Kata. A special mention goes to those who achieved medal positions in both Kata and Kumite events - Megan Dent, Ryan Spencer and Matthew Gibson.
