TKFGB National Squad training in Cheltenham, Oxfordshire, 25th of March, 2018.

The third TKFGB National Squad training took place last Sunday (25th of March) in Cheltenham, Oxfordshire.

Subjects covered included building up proper body composition and strengthening core muscles.

On the technical side, kata adjustments with emphasis on Kitei for Fuku-go (body dynamics and the completion of particular technics).

Cumulating and releasing energy for a powerful technic was the beginning of kumite training followed by Go no sen and Sen no sen (different types of reaction timing). We used Sasoi waza (invitation technic) for attack; worked with distance to mislead the opponent and gain a good position for counter strike; all leading to better understanding of conditions to score wazari in traditional karate competitions.

The event was concluded with a happy birthday wishes to Sensei Paweł Kutermankiewicz who celebrated his 50th birthday – many happy returns Paweł!

4th Traditional Karate Santa Claus Cup -summary.

The fourth edition of the annual Traditional Karate Santa Claus Cup took place at the Traditional Karate Academy Boston (TKAB), with over 100 enthusiastic, junior participants competing in individual and team events.

The Mayor of Boston, Mr Bernard Rush, presented medals to the winners and complemented TKAB, led by its Chief Instructor, sensei Zbigniew Godzisz 4 Dan, for its spirit of inclusiveness and dedication to “better physical and emotional development” of all the youth. Mayor Rush lauded the positive energy and attitudes evident at the event and voiced his support for expansion of such valuable initiatives.

The event started with a special training session led by the World Champion, sensei Lukasz Radwanski 4 Dan, followed by the tournament which began immediately afterwards. All the young participants, aged 13 years of age and below, took to the mats to show their prowess in kumite and kata – all amidst the cheers of encouragement from the spectators.

The culmination of the day of outstanding sportsmanship and all-out fun was the presentation of special recognition awards to Adriana Peiseniece (‘2017 Junior Competitor of the Year’), Kristine Rubina (‘2017 Competitor of the Year’) and Filip Debowski, Jakub Parchanowicz, Alina Rubina, Timofej Kabak and Kirils Snikeris (‘2017 Distinction of Competitive Achievement’). All the young competitors were then treated to a visit from Santa, giving away the galore of gifts straight from his bountiful bag. A family disco party and snacks selection was the only adequate finish to the adventurous day.

The event organizers also led a fundraiser for a 9-year Dawid Wisniewski’s strife against a serious disease – they managed to collect over £220.

This year’s St Claus Cup partners were: ‘Info Service’, ‘Bastylia Mortgages’, ‘Swojskie Jadlo – Family Food’and ‘Varsovia’.
