Palmerstown Shotokan Karate Club along with HDKI Ireland students travelled to the UK to take part in the open HDKI GB Championships in Dudley, with a total of 46 students and parents we travelled in force which has grown in size over the last 4 years, the competition took place on Saturday 13th October in the Dudley leisure Ctr with a lot of competitors attending, after great success at this event for the last 4 years we aimed to do the same, with students ranging from aged 8 up to adults we had entries in most of the categories, with the help of Squad coaches Ray Stritch and Jason Smyth HDKI Ireland dominated most of the events and won a total of 16 Gold, 14 silver and 11 bronze medals, we took away the 2 top trophies of the day which were awarded for best spirited student of the day which was awarded to Victor Delmas from the Hombu dojo and best overall competitor of the day which went to one of our own local students Chloe Holten from Palmerstown Karate club, the day was a great success for everyone and we ended up finishing the event with team Ireland vs team GB, unfortunately we got pipped at the post this year with team GB winning 3/2 to get their payback for us beating them last year at this event, I would like to thank everyone involved that made the competition a success and we look forward to next year when we hope to regain our medal count and hopefully regain the Ireland vs GB title, we have more competitions coming up and hopefully we will have the same success as of late.
