Here we go, British Open weekend and SDSMA are very well represented once again!

The school has certainly been something to be very proud of this year. It’s a growing school with lots of great young people working very hard to improve their abilities in the Dojo; proudly proven by the recent successes of those representing our club and England WUKF at the worlds. As Sensei, I have been hugely impressed by the dedication shown, and excited for those competing.

This weekend will see Joshua De Britto, Sophie De Britto, Harrison Langham, Eli De Leon and Freya Cowhan head to the British Championships to compete in their individual disciplines. Although, I won’t be coaching a squad this time, I will be helping and encouraging team SDSMA to do well and enjoy the experience. It’s going to be a great opportunity for our skilled and dedicated students, and we are all very excited to get going!

The Birmingham University of Sport will be hosting the WUKF GB Open International championships, running from the 9th to the 10th of September. It will be a chance for the sport to showcase young British talent and a great opportunity for me to look at students who will be representing England at the forthcoming European’s, where I will have the responsible position of coach once again.

I am sure you will all join me in wishing team SDSMA the very best of luck and please keep an eye out for updates on our Facebook page over the weekend. If you would like to learn more about the championships, check out the WUKF website for further information on the event.

Let’s go team SDSMA, Birmingham here we come!
