Yesterday (29th October) ESKA held their annual competition at the ESKA Honbu (Stevenage Leisure Centre).

It was a fantastic day for both Ickleford and Biggleswade clubs, with many trophies and medals.

The Day

The competition was well attended by all the 20 ESKA member clubs, with over 300 competitors taking part. The day kicked off at 10am with a standing bow by all competitors and judges to each other and the audience.

As I am sure you can imagine, with such a large number of people it is very difficult to coordinate all the categories and events. So thank you to everyone who remained patient and supported the clubs throughout the day. An even bigger thank you to the judges, referees, admins and organisers who helped the day run as smoothly as possible.

Pictures

Whilst we wait for the professional pictures to be sent across (Many thanks to Luke Santilli for taking these) here are some snaps we managed to take on the day.

Results

Whilst some of you already know the results, we will be typing up the official results for each category and sharing this information in the next few days. So stay tuned for more…

Make sure you bring your medals and trophies to your lessons, including the participant medals!

Well done to everyone, not just the winners – everyone performed amazingly and not a single mistake was made during a Kata! Amazing effort.

Oss,
Sensei
