It was an excellent day at the office for the Wadokai England squad at the 2016 FEW European Championships in Belgium, which was contested by 353 competitors from 15 countries.
Despite some very, very tough competition, our 72 athletes came top of the medal table. Whilst we had the biggest squad with 23% of the entries for the tournament, we won 36% of the gold medals and 38% of the silver medals (see table adjacent).
Wadokai England’s 75 competitors enjoyed an excellent set of results at the 2015 FEW European Championships in Budapest, Hungary.
The squad came home with 66 hard-won medals (19 gold, 24 silver and 23 bronze); representing their country with distinction.
Indeed the total English delegation (including Coaches, Officials and families) exceeded two hundred people.

I’m delighted to confirm that a record 19 medals are being taken home from the Wado-Kai World Cup by Wadokai England:
In addition, the rest of the Wadokai England squad can be rightly proud of having won selection to represent their country at a World Cup in Japan; stunning. Simply stunning.
Thanks and mighty credit go to athletes’ friends and family, who travelled across the globe to cheer on their loved ones with gusto.
The gratitude and respect of the athletes is extended to our amazing Coaches; the team have achieved wonders thanks to you.
