Kumite Coach's Report

Battle of the Teams in Rotterdam Holland 7th December 2013 proved to be a very successful trip for the Midlands Regional Team with all Athletes having to step up to the mark as a high level of performance was needed at this level of competition.

The Results were not to come from wins and loses but points scored so the right tactics were paramount to bring back medals, as a coach I could not have asked more from the Midlands Team a great performance to say the least.

  • Girls 12-13yrs wining Gold in final against Germany
  • Cadet Girls 14-15yrs in a close final lost out to Luxembourg but take Silver
  • Cadet Boys 14-15yrs out second round due to injury
