Stick to Knockdown Senpai
Mullingar Dojo held a Junior camp from 19th to 23rd August at Mullingar Parish Centre. We had 14 participants aged 6 to 12 as well as assistants who helped out. We finished the camp with a Clicker competition where we also had a good turnout of parents and family support for the juniors. Results:
Referees on the day were Alan McCoy, Darren McIntyre and Laquitta Dunne. David Pommer also assisted at the tournament. The Seniors did a wood-break demo and kata for all. The week long activities included team-work,agility and fitness drills in the local town park as well as all aspects of Karate. Everyone had a great week.
