SSKC Kata and Kumite Competition May 2007
Sensei Ash took the normal warm ups followed by some Kihon before the competition started.

Above: Josh and Michael, Heian Shodan - Michael has only been training with the club a few weeks and is due to grade in June for the first time. He is working very hard under the critical eye of his father Sensei Andy Denby who has also recently joined SSKC and the IJKA.

Above: Michael wins through to the final!
He gives Rebecca a really good run for her money, after drawing against her twice the third time goes to the referees decision, not an easy decision for Bernard. Michael gets a highly commended second place, well done Michael.
We were very pleased to welcome Sensei Andy Bailey, an Ex SSKC member and an occasional visitor to the club when he is in the area visiting his parents. Andy kindly did some judging and presented the Kata thophies for us. Thanks Andy.

Well done Joe an excellent result.
Above: Daniel and Rebecca had a long, long fight to decide the winner, how many times can you draw? well they were both very tired and had both received a few hard knocks from each other. In the photo I think Daniel has the upper hand, but Rebecca dug deep to fight back.
Above: Not quite sure why Sensei Helen is in Moksou when she is meant to be judging?
Sensei Ian Culpan was another welcome guest, his parents bought the club the Kumite trophy in the early 1980's and it was an honour to have Ian do some of the judging and present the trophy that his parents had bought so many years before. Thanks Ian.
