SKDUN European Championships - Poland 2018

SKDUN European Championships.
Poland, 13th to 15th April 2018.
13 Portchester Karate club members, joined with members from Bognor Regis, Kiryoku club in london, Kanku club in Bournmouth, Chris Carr from AKA and Devonport club in Plymouth to form the SKDUN team, competing and officiating at the above Championships.
It was a great team effort, but Chris Farndell deserves a particular mention for his not only entering several events, but also looking after all of the other contestants as the England Coach.
Special thanks to the SKDUN organising committee, Sensei Aurel Patru - SKDUN President, and Sensei Colin Putt - Chief Referee, for a most enjoyable Championships.
