In the 25th year anniversary since the first school was established in 1987 in King’s Lynn (now 14 schools in East Anglia with more than 600 students) more than 150 students took part with pattern, sparring and destruction and team sparring events held during the day.
Mildenhall results: Liam Hancock: boys green belt patterns 2nd; Holly Day: ladies black belt patterns 2nd; Joshua Lee: men’s red belt lightweight sparring 3rd.

A fundraiser was also held for Motor Neurone Disease which raised £112.87.
