SSKI sent a strong squad to the 2014 Legend Open Championships in March and came away with a string of excellent individual performances and great medal tally.

The event was the largest in it’s history with over 200 junior competitors and the Men’s Senior events boasting fields of over 50.

SSKI’s Adam Sensei lead from the front capturing both the Men’s Senior Kata and Kumite Titles.   The highlight of the day being the final of the Men’s Senior Kumite between Adam and SSKI’s Dan White, Adam’s friend, club mate and training partner.  In a field of this size and quality, it was a fantastic achievement for SSKI to contest the final.
