Well done to all the above who did the Association proud in a very prestigious annual tournament. Especially well done to Cristy Nash winning both ladies black–belt individual events… Superb! We only took a small squad of seven competitors to this tournament so these results were very good indeed and all seven came from only two clubs (Hemel Hempstead and Basingstoke), so well done to these two clubs. Thanks to our two excellent referees, Jeff Carson and Tony Bunting, for their excellent performances on the day, and thanks also to all the mums and dads etc who accompanied the competitors. Here’s to next year! Malcolm Phipps 8th Dan (Chief Instructor)
