Every 10 years the OKA of Cambridge University Karate Club make the pilgrimage and return to their roots in Cambridge.
Many were in sufficiently good shape to train and /or compete.
Following on from the stunning success of the 2006 encounter which was won by CUKC only after a deciding kata match, this years event had a lot to live up to.
This was a magnificent match with two evenly balanced teams. After two rounds of Shobu Ippon kumite with some outstanding points scored, which included 3 full ippons (Francisco, Petre & Donatas) the current CUKC team, by a margin of six wins to five, emerged as this years winners.
Thank you to Jacus for officiating and Scott and Judy for scoring and time keeping.
Congratulations to all involved for making this a fitting celebration of 40 years of Cambridge University Karate Club.
