Well done to all USKFI squad members who participated in the 2018 Karate Ireland Onakai Kata Championships which took place in the Tallaght Leisure Centre. We had a fine squad representing our organisation and placed 3rd in the overall medal table with just a small squad in attendance. We are super proud of each member who took to the mats today. Great experience gained with the squad certainly stepping out of their comfort zone in a new venue and new format of competition. A big thank you to all the coaches who were there to support, Sensei David Royle, Rhonda Hoban, Leeanne Royle, Peter O Brien, Neil Anderson & Dave Walsh. A special thank you to the parents for their support; it is as always very much appreciated.

This is also a perfect opportunity for our squad coaches to select students showing the determination and potential to be a part of the USKFI International squad. There were certainly some excellent performances all round!! Well done all!!
