Laxton Children’s Festival – 21.06.15

Having accepted an invitation from the Polish Catholic Mission in England and Wales, by recommendation from Polska Macierz Szkolna, TKFGB were honoured to be a part of an All-National Kids’ Day annual event in Laxton n/Corby, Northamptonshire.

The team presented Traditional Karate techniques, fitness and self-defence systems in front of an audience well exceeding 4,000 spectators.
In the breath taking scenery we were met by numerous VIPs, e.g. Polish Catholic Mission Representatives, Mr Witold Sobkow, the Polish Ambassador in the UK and Ms Joanna Kluzik-Rostkowska, the National Education Minister for the Republic of Poland. They showed great interest in the activities of the Federation and enquired about prospects for future expansion.

However, it was not them who benefitted the most from watching our demonstration. It was the kids and their families. After the show the willingly joined in the open training and sport-for-fun activities, so it was a great opportunity to have a lot of great time together.
