Yamaguchi Goju Kai Invitational Kata Competition Sunday 3rd October 2010

Yamaguchi Goju Kai Invitational Kata Competition Sunday 3rd October 2010On Sunday 3rd October Bleu Parris was the sole competitor from Khalsa Champions to compete in this friendly tournament which consisted of Kata events only.

After a drive in some torrential rain to Southend on Sea, Bleu warmed up to take part in the two categories he had entered which were the 5-15 yr 2nd Kyu category and also the 5-15 yr 1st Kyu category. Bleu saw this competition as an ideal way to work through some of his Katas and use it as mat practice.

In his first category Bleu had three rounds which were being judged on the flag system. Bleu performed Anan first and was looking sharp, he won 3-0 and with his next two rounds proving no different, with his performances of Bassai Dai and Seinchin in the final ,he went on to claim the Gold, great result.

He had to hurriedly run on to the other mat as they were awaiting him to compete in the 1st Kyu category and again he had three rounds without dropping a flag. Building on the success from his previous category he decided to do the same three katas but in a different order. In the final he had five judges and went on to get a 5-0 result. Two Golds and an early finish was the perfect end to a small but friendly competition, well done Bleu you are a great ambassador for your club.

The local newspaper for that area were also in attendance and Bleu managed to get a spot in the Local press as well, many thanks to our friends at Yamaguchi for hosting this event.

Sensei Sat commented "These comps are always very well attended and gives good practice to all standards and again Bleu our only competitor did not let the team down taking 2 fantastic golds!! Bleu has the ability to win in both forms at a very very high standard and I applaud his hard work dedication and determination to do well in every comp!!! Well Done Bleu!!!!"
