Wado-UK Presentation Evening 2009

On Friday 4th December 2009, around 170 of the Wado-UK membership met at the Hull University for their end of year presentation evening. The venue had been chosen for the second year and after some refurbishment provided extra dimensions this time around. A state of the art DVD system had been added, giving the opportunity to display some of the images collected over the years from the various clubs. This proved really popular with the audience, as it constantly scrolled through Karate images and some more amusing ones from night's out.

The evening was a way of rewarding and recognising those who had represented their clubs and Wado-UK throughout 2009 and those who had achieved personal goals. The club presentations took the form of glass trophies, and were given to those students who had set themselves apart in four main areas. Those areas were; Achievement, Service, Kata and Kumite.
