Hartlepool Wado Kai Summer Karate Championships 2016

Paul Braid and Steve Balaam-Reed paid another visit to the Hartlepool Wado Kai Summer Championships with their Shinken and Chikara Dojost on the 21st August. Both clubs were to return home with medals to their names, after some outstanding Kata performances from their competiors. This was a return visit to the competition as earlier in the year Wado UK clubs returned home with a bundle of medals. These additions will certainly add to our end of year tally.
