USKFI Kata Championships


The USKFI held the second training competition of the year in our Palmerstown Dojo over the weekend. The event which was very well supported with over 150 competitors in attendance.

The competition which started off with a short course beforehand is based on a squad training format gives students a chance to perform under the added pressure of a competitive environment.

Under the watchful eye of our squad coaches Sensei Sherlock and Sensei David Royle the USKFI Karateka put on some superb Kata performances. Both Sensei Sherlock and Sensei Royle were very impressed with the standard and attitude on display.



The stand out event of the day was the boy’s brown & black belt kata event. With over 30 competitors alone in this event there was a real battle for the top four final places.  Students had to perform their own Kata and were marked on a point system with the choice of changing their kata each round. The calibre of competitor in this particular event was so high we seen some of our current squad members pushed all the way by new up and coming talent!!





With the first two training competitions of the year finished let this kick start our competitive season into gear!! Well done to all and we look forward to seeing some of you compete in the KUGB Grandslam coming up in March. 

The USKFI would like to thank everybody involved in making this event such a success in particular our competition co coordinator Sensei Bernard Gaffney. Thank you to our referees and judges, instructors, competitors and the parents for their continued support.

Well done all!!
