TKFGB has just presented the fourth edition of the most significant national event in its calendar. This year’s 4th Traditional Karate Boston Cup attracted nearly 70 participants (also from outside the Federation) who did their best to prove they deserved the trophy. The disciplines included individual Kata and Kumite. The total of 12 Golden Cups were handed in in the Junior, Cadet and Senior age group.

The event began with four-and a half hours National Squad training session on the day preceding the Cup. The session led by sensei Lukas Radwanski, 4th Dan triple World Champion, was designed to emerge the final team of athletes in the National Squad to participate in the oncoming European Junior Cup (21.10.2017, Poland) and European Championships (4-5.11.2017, Romania).

The highlights were on the winners however, a special recognition goes to a representative of ESKA, Max Clay, who took a challenge and competed in kumite with seniors, even if he was still a cadet. His head turning performance earned him the third place and he was rewarded with massive applause from the audience.

Great performance during the competition was a strong indicator to secure the place in the National Squad Team selected for this year’s European Championships in Romania in November. Members selected were Tomasz Niscior, Kristine Rubina, Pawel Kutermankiewicz, Jakub Parchanowicz and Andrei Skarzinskij as well as Tadeusz Lejman, Christopher Brazier, Filip Debowski and Mario Kalli.
