Roundup of Events in 2019
In February we hosted a seminar in Wirral with Grand Master Gary Miller.
March saw the National Black Belt grading in Cardiff in which one of our students achieved her ITF first Dan.
In April one of our members represented England in the ITF European Championships in Italy, and across the year our members competed in the English Open, the Scottish Open, the BTF Nationals, the Welsh Open, the UK Open, and the Birmingham Open, winning an array of medals, many of them Gold!
Throughout the year several of our members attended England squad training.
Some of our members attended summer camp at Gordonstoun School and also an ITF Technical course in Oxford. Our adult members also enjoyed a few social events.
In September two of our black belts graded to 2nd Dan at the National Black Belt grading in Glasgow.
In December we had our annual awards evening and Christmas party.
Overall it was a difficult year, seeing us lose our long term venue of Moreton Youth Club due to structural issues, despite this we still managed to train and succeed. However, we plan on bigger and better things in 2020 - Watch This Space!!
