This is the second time in Rochfords history that we have won the Southern Regions Championships.

The first time was in 2004, we now have to go after The National crown. I have no doubt with Hard and dedicated training it is Possible.

Southern Regions "Rochfords A Team Kumite Winners"

Daniel was 'on fire' at the Southern Regions and is producing the form and techniques I always new he was capable of. Dan has earned his place in the 'A' team, long may it continue.

Richard anchored the team and fought like a Captain. Miles kept things tight and brought home the Gold. Well done men. One of Rochfords Rising Star and new to the Club, Paul, on his first Competition fought with passion and great enthusiasm to win a Silver medal. Another star at the Southern Region was Callum who made it look so easy I don't think he broke sweat on his way to the gold.

All Rochfords finals

The two juniors fought it out for gold and silver in the 10-11 category on this occasion Karan had the Superior techniques and came away with the gold leaving the way clear for Piers to pickup the Silver.
