Bukonkai ‘Colin Williams’ National Championships Results 2015

On Sunday 19th July 2015, the Bukonkai ‘Colin Williams’ National Championships were held in Luton.

Competitors came from all over the country, particularly from Cheshire, Yorkshire, Newcastle, Surrey, and the local clubs in Bedfordshire.

We were also very pleased to have a team from Malta. Our special thanks go to Sensei Patrick Galea, the senior instructor of our Bukonkai Malta club, who travelled with his family and students to the UK for the competition, who all greatly contributed to making the day very special.

There was a Kata demonstration by Sensei Steve Creasy and his senior students performing Gojushiho Sho in mirror image and then the bunkai (application) of the kata.

As usual, two very important perpetual trophies were presented by our Chief Instructor, Sensei Lee Williams. The Dave Waterhouse memorial trophy was presented to Aleyandro Borg for outstanding performance and spirit on the day. The Colin Williams ‘Samurai Helmet’ was awarded to Alex Ronda for his dedication and contribution to Bukonkai in the past year.

The Finals were very competitive as usual, with the Maltese team winning many of the individual events as well as advanced team kata.

The results for each event were as follows:
