AMA International Championships 2013: Yudansha off to a good start to the year


East London based karate club: Kaizen Ryu, sent a small group to Sheffield at the weekend (16-17th February 2013) to compete at the AMA International Championships, which was well attended by clubs across the country and from Europe.

Held over two days at the prestigious Ponds Forge venue, the tournament attracted over 400 competitors. Day one was the kata (pre arranged forms) competition. First one to pick up a medal for the day was young star and community role model Tyrone Briscoe Jnr, who placed Bronze in the 13-17yrs Boys Kata Goju Ryu. The ladies did well in their division too where Jasmine David and Gina Boot placed Silver and Bronze respectively in the  Women’s Goju Ryu Kata category, narrowly losing to an outstanding performance by the Romanian competitor. Indran Tanabalan picked up a Gold medal in his division Men’s Goju Ryu Kata. Indran’s kata: Seisan and Suparinpei, was just that bit more outstanding compared to his closest competitor, who also did the same kata in the preliminary round and finals.

Awesomeness! This is the new buzz word bounding around the karate world as the Kaizen Ryu National Squad goes from strength to strength. They recently returned back from this year’s Munich International Open with an impressive ten trophies after taking on oppositions from Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Holland and UK.

As the tournament season gets into gear, the Kaizen Team gets busy with training and takes on competitors at the Malympex European Championships; an all styles tournament attracting over 300 competitors from across Europe. Team Coach Tyrone Snr said “the whole squad pulled together and fought hard. Their support for each other is what makes them a successful team, walking away with a total of 17 trophies and European titles (10 Golds, 4 Silver & 3 Bronze). We are proud of their achievements, and there’s still a long road ahead.”  European titles were won by local Bow kids Molly Ullah and Tyrone Briscoe, Dagenham kids Vicky Phillips and Jack McAllister, and Gina Boot from Romford.
