Sensei Brunton commented “It is really heartening to see the commitment and passion from everyone today. I can easily see the commitment all the coaches are giving to their students. This is important for good karate technique to flourish in their students. The spirit and enthusiasm shown by all the competitors is excellent. There has been a tremendous spirit of competitiveness, yet in a friendly and supportive atmosphere. We hope to continue this competition to inspire & encourage our future karate-ka”.

Congratulations to everyone who competed.
