Queens Park Sports Centre, Chesterfield hosted the 2010 KUGB National Youth Championships. Competitors numbers were increased by 25% on the previous year and the standard was again very high.
Sendai Kushiro selected a team of 17 members for the event, with many of them competing at national level for the very first time, so for them the experience of competing at this level alone would have been fantastic, however many of them reached the final of their event. Along side those making their debuts at this level we also had our more experienced competitors, who also performed fantastically taking a host of medals. A special mention goes to Bethaney Miller (on her debut), Beth Nicholson and Chris Hamilton who all took medals in both Kata and Kumite events.
