Sensei Brunton commented, “We are really pleased with the start of this league initiative. We took some time to ensure we created something that would motivate the students and give them support to better prepare for future competitions. We have seen a real step-change in those taking part regularly; not just their technique, but their composure under pressure and the confidence they have shown against their peers.”
