Kat was her usual formidable self in the ladies continuous where she gained a first place. She then fought in the Ladies advanced where she gave a good account of herself against bigger and more experienced opponents, coming 4th.
chniques, scoring strongly. As the fight progressed his opponent closed Ashleigh down and managed to push him out of the mat several times. The result was a loss for Ashley in his first tournament for years, but it was only due to Ashley's tacticts and getting used to fighting in this style and on a mat. There are great things in the future for him.
Neil fought in the mens continuous and was experimenting with more movement and fluidity in the fight which worked really well. I though hedominated the bout until the last 15 seconds where his opponent scored some good kicks. the judges felt this was enough to give the bout to the opponent.
It was time to present the grand championships where BKO received 4. Kat in Points and continuous, Neil in continuous and Ron in Veterans. Best of all though BKO were awarded the team of the year trophy which is amazing as it recognises the effort and ability of our club as a whole and what we have achieved this year. It gives credit to all the fighters whether they have won a bout or not and all the parents and helpers who make the club what it is and can share in the success. Well done everyone.
