So Saturday 23 May 2020 at 10:00, saw the very first online kata competition via Zoom for all the students of Ruach Karate. There were a total of 36 entrants ranging from white belts to black belts and every colour in between but with one thing in common, they all enjoy their karate sessions online and train hard. The overall performances were very good with great attitude and spirit being shown by all. For some of the students this was their first ever competition and I am glad to say it has inspired them to seek out more opportunities to train and prepare once lockdown has ended. I would like to say a massive congratulations to all those students who took part and especially those who won a medal.
3rd Kyu & Brown Belts
8Th Kyu and 7th Kyu
6th Kyu to 4th Kyu
- Kai with kata Sochin.
- Dan with kata Sansai.
- Farah with kata Enpi.
The Grand Champion of the day having showed fantastic spirit was Daisy (White belt) who is new to karate and only ever trained with Ruach via Zoom sessions, a remarkable feat and very well deserved.
Thank you to all the Instructors who gave up their time to help support the event and judge the competition as without it, it wouldn’t have happened.
