AITF National Championships 2017
Yesterday was the very first National Championships for the AITF. They were held in the Abbey Grammar School, Newry. It was hosted by Mr Fegan IV dan. There was over 150 competitors, coming from all parts of the country. Thank you to everyone who took part and supported the competitors throughout the day. Overall, there was a very high standard of not only patterns and sparring but also among the referees and judges. As this was the last competition of 2017, it is safe to say that AITF ended on a high note.
The main aim was to make sure everyone enjoyed their experience from the white belts being it their first competition to the black belts who helped judge later on.
A big thank you to everyone who helped out in any way, the day was only possible because of you and it is greatly appreciated. Also thank you to Cloud9 who served food and coffee all day long to spectators, competitors and judges.
We can only grow from here and I look forward to what the future has in store for us. Congratulations to everyone who received a trophy or a medal and to those who didn’t, will get there next time.
