II Santa Claus Cup – Boston 2015

II Traditional Karate Santa Claus Cup – Boston 2015

 

II Traditional Karate Santa Claus Cup has now passed to history. This year’s edition was abundant in emotions both related to the tournament itself as well as the visiting guests: the Mayor of Boston, Mr Richard Austin (accompanied by his wife, former Mayor of Boston, Mrs Alison Austin), and most expected Mr Santa Claus with his magic sack-full of Xmas presents. Our junior athletes then tried their strengths at the disco and a buffet-load of snacks and beverages.

 

The Annual event, aimed at the youngest practitioners of Traditional Karate, gathered the excess of 90 participants both in the morning training sessions and the competition itself. Nearly 100% increase in numbers (as compared to the previous year), only confirms that the idea has been well conceived and targeted, and so, is supposed to attract even more attention in the future. It is worth noticing that the overall level of presentation was well above last year’s. Most of the young athletes proved to have made great progress and most of the last year’s favourites were heavily challenged.

 

There also took place the second General Assembly of TKFGB. Among others, suggestions were made as for new events for the upcoming year 2016. The event calendar to be presented by the end of current year.
