JKAE Nationals 2012

National championships on the 7th July 2012.

We met bright and early Saturday Morning outside the Dojo. We took the club minibus and also took cars (as there were 26 competitors alone) The M4 had shut both ways due to a crack in a bridge (great timing).

However a short detour to the M40 and problem solved.

We arrived at the Montem Leisure Centre Montem Lane, Slough.

It was an all grades Nationals.

I hope you all enjoyed the day, even though the chosen venue didn’t live up to expectations!!

Congratulations to all that entered the championships, you all performed fantastically.
