Sunday 10th November saw ESKA hold its annual championships at the Stevenage Hombu. This year was a special year, as ESKA celebrated its 40th anniversary, so the competition was bigger and better than ever before. As always, the event was a great success and all that attended enjoyed the high quality of karate on show. From the youngest junior to the oldest adult; everyone showed a high level of commitment and spirit. Judges were particularly impressed with the etiquette of the students participating.

With the autumn grading over, its time to focus on the 2018 competition that’s open to absolutely EVERYONE within ESKA. This year the competition is on a Saturday and all contestants will receive a participation medal and certificate with trophies being awarded to 1st, 2nd and 3rd places. Check out the event page.
On 26th and 27th May the rearranged AMA International Karate Championships took place in Ponds Forge in Sheffield.

On the weekend of 7/8th April a few of the students from the Hatfield/Birchwood/Codicote clubs went down to Sittingbourne in Kent to take part in the AMA Southern Competition.
I thought it would be a good idea to check it out ahead of potentially committing the whole of the ESKA squad next year… Read on to see how we got on.
We have just been made aware that the AMA Championships 2018 have been cancelled by the event organisers.
This is due to the adverse weather conditions currently being experienced and with more severe weather planned to be on the way, this was deemed the best course of action for the organisers.
We will keep you updated if the competition is to be rearranged for another date. Please watch this space.
