The championships were well attended with many parents and supporters turning out to enjoy the day and cheer on the competitors.

Many thanks to all attendees and particularly the officials (referees, judges, time/score keepers) who performed their job on the day, conscientiously and efficiently with the tournament finishing at 5pm. Particular mention to Senseis Claire Harte (IKKI PRO) for organising and medal presentations and Nathan Donelan on his first tournament refereeing and also competing. And not forgetting all those who helped with the competition area setup and providing the tournament gear. Truely a fantastic group effort.
