GREAT NEWS WE HAVE MADE IT THROUGH TO THE NEXT ROUND OF THE ESSEX CHRONICLE SPORTS AWARDS! NOW IT'S TIME TO VOTE.....
So start voting for Chelmsford Shotokan Karate Club as we are in the Essex Chronicle today, on page 58, amongst eight teams who are all hoping to become the Essex Sports Awards 2014 'Team of the Year'.
Chelmsford Shotokan Karate Club have had an Outstanding Year in 2014. The year kicked of with the local Tigers Competition where we won six of the nine events. This was followed by three of our students representing England at the Karate Union of Great Britain (KUGB) International Grand Slam in March (and also later in August). Then, at the KUGB British National Championships in May, we won four medals including the British title in the Ippon Kumite. This was followed by the KUGB Southern Regions where we brought home the lion share of the medals with a total of thirty one, this included eleven Gold medals! In July, at the KUGB British Youth Championships, the Club was outstanding at this level to win eleven medals including three British Titles! In September, at the KUGB British Shotokan Cup, we brought home three more medals including yet another British Title.
We have not only had success in competition as a large number of students have successfully passed their Kyu Gradings in the three examinations this year and we have had a 100% record of students taking and passing their Dan Gradings. Furthermore we had one of our Black Belts awarded his National Judges Qualification.
All of these achievements are as part of the KUGB the largest single style Karate organization in the UK.
Our success is based on the hardwork, commitment and determination of all our students so YOU should all be proud of YOUR contribution and this nomination.
Below is our picture following the KUGB Nationals and Southern Region Championship, with the Voting code and a very brief explanation of why the Chronicle Newspaper nominated us as a candidate for 'Team of the Year'
