The National BCKA Championships.
These were held at Lodge Park Sports centre, Corby where around 300 fighters assembled to compete in the National Championships, as always the competition at this prestigious event was of the highest level but my fighters did extremely well, fighter of the day at this event was Edward Paddock who entered four categories and became national champion in each one, winning his own category was expected but when he stepped up to fight boys that were over 6' while giving away three years and a lot of weight, he did exceptionally well!
Every fighter from our team gave an excellent display with some new fighters coming through and gaining valuable experience at the highest level.

The Norfolk Open is staged in Stalham, Norfolk and once again our fighters went along to compete although I only sent a selected few to fight.
The event was smaller than anticipated and our fighters dominated every single section they entered becoming champions in 14 of the 17 Categories entered.
There is another event in Norfolk later this year but I am unsure whether we will attend as the competitors didn't test our fighters sufficiently.

I took a medium team of fighters to the Peterborough open series yesterday at Ken Stimson school, Werrington, Peterborough
As usual this event did not disappoint and there was excellent fighters on display to rival our fighters, this event gets stronger every year, along with the fighters that attend from far afield.
Our usual fighters collected trophies but I was particularly pleased for two newcomers that stepped up and took on all comers in their section. Ashton Brannigan, a young man from Whittlesey that's won his first trophy at an open competition and Vincent Spencer who collected third place in continuous along with a champion trophy, the third-place trophy was well deserved after fighting in the -65kg boys section and eventually beating an experienced black belt in the third place fight off, Vincent is only an orange belt and been training for a short period of time, he listened to my instructions during the fight and will go a long way within the sport.
