Last weekend saw the 7th running of our East Yorkshire Open Karate Championships. It was also the most testing time for our group of volunteers, as venue problems almost scuppered our plans. This lead to a very busy 4 days of work which included taking delivery of 600 m2 of temporary flooring on the Friday, laying that as well as our mats on the Saturday, and returning it all to the supplier on the Monday after what was a successful competition day on the Sunday! A lot of work indeed. Thankfully we had plenty of volunteers from the Shinken, Chikara, East Hull Woodford and Zanshin Dojo's to get the job done. This was bolstered by past members and family friends who also pitched up to help over the course of the weekend. For this we are extremely grateful.

The competition itself was, as always, a complete success. Numbers were considerably down on previous years, This was due to several reasons, not least of which was another competition in Barnsley being introduced two weeks before ours. I saw this as more than a little rude as the organiser had been feeding off us for some time about how to run an event. That said people can stage events at their leisure so there was nothing we could do. There was also a number of other distractions, namely the Scottish Karate Federation Championships, which robbed us of referees rather than competitors, and a competition in the Midlands run by Paul Campbell. For this reason we will be considering a move in the calendar for next year.

Our competitors did extremely well this year. In one kata section we managed to take 3 of the 4 medals on offer, and we also won 2 of the 13 team categories run. Of course there were many individual medal wins along the way also. For a complete run down on who won and what medals they won, below is a table of how things panned out. Our Wado UK competitors are marked up in bold.

We would like to thank all those who attended the competition, and who therefore also contributed to its success. We see many associations and clubs return each year, and this is very encouraging for us.

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

Ivor Thomas (Chief referee), Peter Bibby, Gary Hoyle, Paul Gunn, Gordon Harrison, Dave Robinson, Amir Arvandi, Tracey Archer, Gemma Holland, Nigel Langson, Graham Mableson, Geoff Dixon, Amir Karimi, Colin Broach, Cieran Flood, Ben Brown, Brian Graham, Ashley Pickles, David Johnston, Rob Edwards, Carl Jorgeson, Pete Beeforth, Rosemary Harper, Darren Cousin, Jane Slack and Mahdi Hazrati

We were also assisted by many members and parents from within our own group and we are eternally grateful for this much needed help. Thank You Everyone!
