On September 29th, one month ahead of the usual date of our East Yorkshire Championships, we staged the 5th edition of our competition. There were benefits of holding it earlier by a few weeks, more daylight was one, with the bonus of good weather too. A decision now needs to be made as to whether or not to leave it at this time of the year, or move back to our late October date. Over the next month or so we will decide, because we need to begin the preparations for 2014 early to make sure we get everything in place.

The competition itself was lighter on competitor numbers than last year, but there were reasons we knew of why this might have been the case. The English Karate Federation decided that a full England 'A' Squad session was to be held, meaning we were robbed of competitors who would normally have attended. This problem is unfortunately one which keeps repeating itself, and one which we have to endure. Hopefully in 2014 we will be fortunate enough to avoid such clashes.

We did however have around 24 groups in attendance, and the cross section of competitors was a diverse mix of styles and abilities. This spectrum of ability though didn't lead to any medical mishaps, as over the course of the day we saw just under 400 competitors compete, and it was pleasing to note that there were no serious injuries at all.

This year saw the introduction of first place trophies replacing the gold medals of previous years. This decision was made as some groups suggested that winning competitors liked trophies rather than medals. One thing we have always done is listened to our visitors. We believe that feedback is an important part of making our competition the success that it is.

Additionally this year we decided on a split in one of the categories. Again at the request of one of our regular visitors, KA 6 was divided into girls and boys sections because of the volume of competitors. The decision was a good one, and if numbers are repeated next year, we will do the same again.

We would like to say a massive thank you to all of the competitors, coaches and parents who made the journey to Hull to support our championships. Your attendance made the day a success and made it all worth while.

We would also like to thank all those who assisted in the days activities. Officials included;

Brian Noble (Chief referee) , Peter Bibby, Paul Gunn, Gary Hoyle, Nigel Blood, Gordon Harrison, Dave Robinson, Harold Stevenson, Ben Brown, Phil Moody, Ciaran Flood, John Robinson, Alan Connor, Tracey Archer, Brian Graham, Robert Lamb, Graham Mableson, Pete Beeforth, Gemma Holland, Sarah Cotton, Alison Hinds, Geoff Dixon, Ashley Pickles, Denis Robinson, Tony Tutty, and Shirley Braid.
