CEWKA Championships July 2014

Just two Wado UK competitors made the trip down to the Central England Championships this year. Joel Edgar and Jordan Taylor of the Shinken Dojo made the trip to the midlands on the 6th July. Despite the fact that only two competitors made the trip, medals still made their way back to Hull due to the efforts and ability of the Shinken duo. Joel was to come up trumps in both his kata and Kumite categories, getting a bronze medal podium finish in his kata, and going one better in his Kumite event by standing on the podium in the silver medal position. Jordan was to miss out on the bronze medal in his Junior male kata section by just one match. However this result was still showing the consistency of late which should hopefully pay dividends in the future. A pleasing result for both competitors, which is building up mat time experience as they move forward. Well done!

This year’s event was supposed to be the biggest yet and as a result the organiser planned to have eight tatamis running simultaneously. This didn't quite happen as for the kata they actually used six. The kumite events did have the eight areas but the trade off was a mirror judge system in operation on some of them. On the whole the competition was well received, and our competitors performed well on the day. Well done!
