27th Annual UBA National Course & Family Holiday, Ladram Bay, Devon April 2008

An all association event promoting harmony and enjoyment in martial arts

Here is a selection of pictures from our 2008 action packed, fun filled National course. Thanks to all pupils who took part - it's your course and you make it what it is. (The Directors of Ladram Bay came to the UBA President to say how impressed they were with the 'impeccable' conduct of all members, in particular the youngsters.) Appreciation and thanks too to families for their support, to the UBA tutors, assistants and mat marshals, and, of course, to our guest instructors.
