4th Traditional Karate Boston Cup

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.

TKFGB Summer Camp in Dojo Stara Wies, 3-7 August 2017
TKFGB Summer Camp, Dojo Stara Wies, Morning Warm-Up

In early August (3-7th) 2017, TKFGB held its first international Summer Camp. The four busy days were filled with training, relaxation and family fun!

Our group of 30 participants, both juniors and seniors, trained 4-6 hours a day to improve their skills and put into practice the knowledge passed on by the Head Coach, Sensei Lukasz Radwanski, 4th Dan. The focus was on kumite and increasing motor skills and movement efficiency.

The three main training sessions were supplemented with:

– 07.00 – usually a 4 mile cross country run or interval training at the football pitch
– 10.30 – main dojo, stretching and kihon plus more fitness and games
– 15.30 – main dojo, kumite and kitei/kata practise
– 19.00 – sport and games outside
– 20.30 – individual training time

The Camp was also a great opportunity for the families to spend time together playing games, cycling, swimming or just taking a walk in the surrounding forests. But don’t worry if you missed it this time.

TKFGB National Squad training, Peterborough, 10.06.2017
TKFGB National Squad training, Peterborough, 10.06.2017

The last TKFGB National Squad training at Gladstone Park Dojo was a tough experience: 5,5 hours of pure training and testing. Both juniors and seniors were working hard to prove worthy of being selected for the European Championships and Children’s Cup this year (22-23rd Oct – European Children’s Cup, Poland; 4-6th Nov – European Championships for seniors, Romania).
This time we covered interval and endurance training, staged kumite (timing, distance in fighting and foot work) and the best kata selection for the competition.
We also ran a short self-defence session, working on applying locks in close distance combat, led by Tomasz Nisciur.
Our next National Squad training will be held on 16th July at Gladstone Park Dojo, Peterborough.
