British Karate Championship

 

As most of you will know, the Karate Kai Scotland entered a small squad into this year’s British Karate Championship; the squad comprised of

Katrina Kinney (Kugatsu)

Laura Slevin (Kokusai)

Heather McLaren (Kokusai)

Kirsty McLeod (Kokusai)

Sharon McCann (Kugatsu)

Laura Williams (Kugatsu)

Bryan McCann (Kugatsu)

Squad Coach - Bobby Morton

Referees - Billy Haggarty

Graham McCann

There was a huge entry for this year’s championship (Saturday’s events started at 9.00 a.m. and finished at 10.30 p.m.!!) and the squad were a credit to themselves and the association with all performing well despite a lot of sitting around waiting for events to start.

The weekend was a great success.

Katrina British Champion 2009 (Female veterans kumite) & 5th Place (Senior female kumite <68kg)

Laura S Bronze Medal (Female 16 – 17 years kumite <48kg)

Kirsty Bronze Medal (Senior female kumite 68kg +)

Female Kumite Team Bronze Medal (Senior Female team kumite) (Katrina, Heather and Kirsty)

Billy Promoted to British Kumite referee and British Kata judge

Graham Promoted to British Kumite referee and British Kata judge

Unfortunately Sharon was unable to compete on the day due to injury. Laura W and Bryan both performed well in their respective kata events with Laura getting through to the repocharge and Bryan being knocked out in the second round. Heather also fought in the senior female kumite event; despite fighting well she was narrowly beaten by a strong competitor from England.

Well done to the squad.

Grading Success

The first dan grading with our new association provided us with a new sho-dan (Leanne Shields), two ni-dans (Joe Shields & Eddie Rae) and a san-dan (David McKinnon)

well done to all, especially as the grading lasted almost two hours after a five hour course, I think they certainly earned their grades.
