Anglia Kata Competition

Why ‘Anglia’ well simply because the original club Wellingborough, now SKCE Englands oldest at 40 years, has spread its associated clubs throughout the main area counties of Northamptonshire, Cambridgeshire and Lincolnshire.

Around 150 competitors, mostly children took part in this kata competition aged from 5 years upwards on Saturday 7th June 2014 at the Kingswood Academy, Corby.

The Chief referees for the event were 6th Dan Peter Welsh, one of SKCE’s Technical Directors and a top international referee, and, 5th Dan Graham Mercer who is the SKC England Squad Instructor.

Assisting were senior black belt instructors from the various clubs in the Wellingborough group.

It was a friendly competition enjoyed by all those taking part and intended to provide young karateka with an opportunity to experience competition in the hope that many will go on to participate in the SKC National Championships In October later this year.
