Hartlepool Wadokai JUNIOR Inter-Club Championships – Results & Gallery

18th November 2012 – Belle Vue Sports Centre, Kendal Road, Hartlepool.

This was not the biggest competition that we’ve ran by any stretch of the imagination but with 112 competitor entries it was still big enough for the competitors to get some experience. We ran two areas and the officials did a great job as usual, they even managed to shave an hour off my guestimated finish time. We were all done and dusted by 1.15pm which meant a nice short day for everyone concerned.

The feedback has been really positive, especially since a lot of kids took away some great trophies in addition to the usual medals.

I’d like to personally thank everyone who came along and supported us this year, competitors, parents, instructors – I know it’s sometimes tough to get to and support everything that we’d like to but it really is appreciated.

Hartlepool Wadokai JUNIOR Inter-Club Karate Championships

Today was the Hartlepool Wadokai JUNIOR Inter-Club Karate Championships. The event was held at the Belle Vue Sports Centre in Hartlepool and had almost 250 competitor entries from 11 clubs attending.

We started the day a few minutes behind schedule at approx 10:10am but by 2:10pm, all events were done and dusted. For this I’d like to personally thank ALL the officials and volunteers who made the day go so smoothly, and also the competitors and parents for being great sports throughout. I’d also like to personally congratulate Askam Karate Club for achieving a fantastic FIVE bronze medals in their FIRST EVER competition! Please click here to download the full results.

We’re missing a few podium shots for some reason (KA9 – 3rd Kyu + Kata, 16-18yrs; KU3 – Kumite, Male 10-12yrs; KU8 – Kumite Female 16-18yrs). If anyone has these can you please send me them?

I’d like to once again thank everyone for attending and hope to see you all at our Full Inter-Club Championships in March 2012.

Regards,

Carl


November & December Karate Events

As always at the club we’ve got an action packed month, with tons of events going on for our members.

Friday 4th November, 7-10pm – Okumachi Sensei Kata Course, Alfreton Leisure Centre, Derbyshire

This course is highly recommended to anyone interested in the standardised JKF-Wadokai Kata. I train with Okumachi Sensei as often as possible as he’s a fantastic Wadokai technician, I always come away learning tons! Hartlepool Wadokai classes are running as normal.

Saturday 5th & Sunday 6th November,  Aiwakai Way to Excellence Course & Dan Grading, Alfreton Leisure Centre, Derbyshire

The club has four people taking their Dan Grade (Black Belt) tests this weekend in Alfreton. The weekend training course is led by Sakagami Sensei, supported by Peter May, Keith Walker and (maybe… not sure) Sensei Lee Minion too.

A fantastic opportunity to train with one of the original Japanese instructors who came to the UK all those years ago.

We’re very much looking forward to training with him again this month.
