Please, join me in congratulating wdax and partner for their hard work and commitment.
Another positive thing to mention is that the EJU reverted to traditional tatami colors for the kata contest ! This was a great decision and after years of despair finally restored some of the classical kata atmosphere. Having to perform kata on yellow/blue tatami has been awful, disorienting, sometimes your eyes would just hurt. He's a picture of the contest tatami lay-out. I think this is the best one can get and if the IJF wants to stick with the dynamic border lay-out (not necessary for kata anyhow) then this is the best possible lay-out. I hope that in the end the IJF will follow the same example and slowly start replacing the blue/yellow tatami disaster.
