Club Competition 2014

Each year the club organises an internal competition, with the hoping of getting people who've never competed before to give it a go.

Competition Report

CUKC held its annual club competition on Sunday, 2nd November, at the Fenner's Indoor Cricket School. We had a short training session first, and once everyone was warmed up, we moved on to an exciting line-up of kata performances and kumite matches.

The Alvaro Angeriz Award

Alvaro was a much loved member of the club who began his training in CUKC and was awarded an honorary dan grade posthumously following his death from complications after a bone marrow transplant. The Alvaro Angeriz trophy was awarded to the best individual performer, Karol Fiedorczuk, who was champion in the Mixed Kyu Grade Kata and Mixed Kyu Grade Ippon Kumite. Well done Karol!

Congratulations to everyone for a wonderful performance today! Many thanks to our judges and anyone who came to support the competition. Special thanks also goes out to Jane Blunt and our newest member of the club, Esther Kang, who helped count scores and keep time.

We hope to see everyone continue to strive for excellence through hard work and discipline in training.
