Another excellent day for the Association and many congratulations to all the above on their fine performances. Six gold medals is no mean feat in such a prestigious and very well–attended tournament. Rachael Houlton also picked up a bronze trophy when she joined up with the Portsmouth Ladies Kumite Team. Also, well done to our three referees on the day who gave an excellent and very fair performance.
