Divisions were actually split more than usual to try to give an even fairer chance , particularly for the white belts, and of course, all male and female categories were seperate.
It was great to see the guest associations doing equally well across the board, all showing very similar high standards.


  

Nearly all schools took medals away with them along with their participation certs, leaving the competitors & spectators happy and really looking forward to next years event.
D E photo's were present and some great pics can be seen or purchased from their site - www.dephoto.biz/t-uk .
It was great to see our 2 Olympians present, Mr Lyle Walker and Miss India Isles, and this proved a great photo opportunity for the members.

After the tournament, a party evening had been arranged at The Grosvenor Hotel, where many students partied away until the early hours.
T-UK would really like to thank all who supported this event, especially the officials who always work so hard to make these things possible.
Until Next Year !
