At this high level of competition there are no losers; you win or you learn and this was without a doubt a was a fantastic learning experience for the whole team. The next International event for the team is the ESKA in eight weeks time in Portugal. Time to get back to the dojo where preparation starts once again.
The USKFI would like to thank our squad coaches Sensei Michael Sherlock & Sensei David Royle, our international referees Sensei Jennifer Prendergast. Sensei Jim Bartley and Sensei Bernard Gaffney for their relentless hard work in the build up to this event and especially over the competition weekend. They are always striving for perfection in their fields of expertise and this in turn is constantly raising the standard within our association. We would also like to thank the parents who traveled with the team and supported throughout the weekend.
Finally the USKFI would like to congratulate the KUGB teams from England, Wales, Scotland & Northern Ireland on their superb performances over the weekend and the Italian Karate Association for hosting such a fantastic tournament.
