Yorkshire Open Karate Championships 2015

Amie Newton, Ellie Hayes, Joel Edgar, Ben Harrison and Jordan Taylor of the Shinken Dojo were joined by Samuel Grey, Ellis Miller and Joe rose of the Zanshin Dojo for this year's Yorkshire Open. An oversubscribed entry meant the day went on far too long with youngsters team events not getting underway while 8.30pm. Fortunately we didn't have teams in the competition so our group had actually finished by this time. Serious consideration will have to be given to this event the next time around, particularly when youngsters have school the next day.

On a more positive note, the team of Amie Newton, Ben Harrison and Ellie Hayes got the medal ball rolling with a Bronze medal in the team kata section. Amie added to this with an individual Bronze also in her own section. The trio can be seen below displaying their medals

These medals were then added to by the efforts of Ellis Miller and Joe Rose in their individual kumite categories. Each of the boys reaching finals but falling at the last hurdle and therefore settling for a silver each on this occasion. Both boys can be seen below, also wearing their medals.

Well done to all our medal winners, and also to those who took part but didn't medal on this occasion.
