We attended this competition last year and did very well. This is a very good local competition and perfect for those who have never competed before. If you wish you or your child to attend this year then please speak to any of the coaches after practice.
Kyu Kitso was well represented at the Oxfordshire Area Championship in Didcot, with both Daniel and Ayman winning gold, Shoaib collecting silver and Tom a bronze. Well done to all of you.
