Leicester Championships 2014

5 Members of the East Hull Woodford and Hull Zanshin Dojos took part in this year's Leicester Open Karate Championships, and between them they managed to secure 9 medals for our group. Those in attendance were Teerth, Charan and Amrit Dhesi of the East Hull club, and Ellis Miller and Josh Hartery of the Cottingham based Zanshin club.

The picture above shows all our medallists wearing both their medals and smiles. It was really pleasing to see such a set of results as all of the youngsters went it alone without a coach for the day. The results were as follows;

Individual Kata medals were won by Josh Hartery & Amrit Dhesi who both won gold, while Charan took silver and Teerth a bronze. In the pairs kata, we had opportunities from the pairings of Teerth and Charan Dhesi which proved to be another golden result, and Amrit and Ellis Miller who managed to add a bronze to the tally. Finishing things off in the kata categories was to be the team of the Dhesi siblings. This added a further bronze to the overall kata medal numbers.

Kumite medals were not to be as plentiful, but we did see another two medal successes. These would be won by Teerth in his individual category where he added another personal bronze, then going on to consolidate this with a final bronze for the day when he teamed up with Ellis Miller and Charan for the Boy's and Girl's mixed team kumite category.

Overall a very pleasing day and one which will go a long way to boosting our medal tally at the end of the year.

Well done everyone.
