The BKO kids club tournament took place last Saturday>
This is our first try at running a small club comp designed to give experience to kids that have not competed before and some mat time to those who have.
It was a round robin tournament under WAKO rules with 5 sections of mixed boys and girls covering higher and lower grades.
There was a great atmosphere and many of the club's younger members turned up to compete. There was no prisoners taken as all tried their best to win a medal. Some great bouts were seen and also great team spirit. Certificates were handed out to 2nd and 3rd places and all participants.
The day was such a success that we are planning to run a series of four torunaments of this type throught next year and have a club league ranking system. Eventually we hope to make it an open local tournament for all comers.
