University of Moratuwa (MORA) secures a formidable victory at the Inter-University Karate Championship, while Eastern University (EST) and University of Colombo (COL) emerge runner-ups.
The championship was held at University of Moratuwa Gymnasium on Saturday, 23rd July. It was only the second time that Karate appeared at the inter-university arena, after its introduction at last year’s (2010) Sri Lanka University Games (SLUG). Overall, nine university teams competed at this year’s event.
 The championship comprised of three categories, Kumite, Kaatha – individual and Kaatha – team. Kumite is where competitors show their combat abilities, and this was held in eight weights classes in men’s category (U50, U55, U60… U80 & O80) and four weights classes in women’s category (U48, U53, U60 & O60). Competitors show their style and class in Karate at Kaatha events.
MORA managed to top the men’s category with 27 points. This was supported by two winnings, D.R.D.H Dasanayake (U55) and L.R. Basnayake (U80), one first runner-up, three second runner-ups at the Kumite event. MORA also managed to win the Kaatha team event, while securing second & third places in the individual category of the same event. L.A. De Votta (U70), U.M. Waidyantha (U75) and H.M.N. Nayanajith (O80) won respective Kumite weight classes for COL and with two more runner-ups in Kumite, runner-ups at both the Kaatha events,  COL managed to secure the second place at men’s category adding 21 points. Sabaragamuwa University (SAB) emerged third along with University of Kelaniya (KEL) with 13 points each. A.U.M. Assella (KEL, U50), S.Kajendran (JAF, U60), H.M.S.U. Bandara (SAB, U65) were the winners at the other respective weight classes.
Despite of the weak performance in the men’s category, EST managed to top the women’s category with astounding 28 points. EST produced two winners J. Jayaradha (U53), S. Danisha (O60) and two first runner-ups at the Kumite events. Winning both Kaatha events was the icing on the cake for EST women’s superior performance. Two winnings of P.K.A. Punsisi (U48), U.N.D. Perera (U60) and two runner-ups at Kumite earned MORA 14 points for the second place. MORA was closely followed by SAB with 10 points.
