On Saturday 25th October Tracey joined more than 20 primary & secondary schools from across Medway and Kent who entered teams for the Shi Kon Martial Arts Kung Fu Kids Autumn Tournament at Chatham Girls Grammar School. During the competition, in front of an audience of families, friends, fellow competitors, judges and competition officials, around 100 competitors competed across 3 arenas individually demonstrating skills in Kung Fu “forms”.
The event commenced with a display by the Shi Kon demo team including forms, self-defence demonstrations and a spectacular sword display. Tracey supported the competition and later took part in group Martial Arts exercises with the children. At the end of the competition Tracey presented trophies to the winners and congratulated everyone who took part.
Speaking after the competition Tracey said:
“It was fantastic to support the Shi Kon Martial Arts School’s Tournament this weekend and celebrate the student’s success during the award ceremony. It is clear that the students thoroughly enjoy their time at this Sport England Accredited club and I wish them all the best for the future.”
