March 2014 Regional Tournament

The first tournament for 2014 took place on Saturday 1st March at Westcroft leisure centre in Surrey. Region 20 had 16 students make the drive around the M25, for their chance to represent themselves, and their dojo against students from all across London, Essex and Hertfordshire.

The day was hosted by region 18 and organised by Sensei Karl Eccott, the regional instructor for the region. The day ran incredibly well and it was great to see so many region 20 students come and show me their medals throughout the day.
