Hi all,  To all those who signed my guestbook....thankyou. 
It looks like you all had a good time in Malta. I'm glad about that. The event passed but the memories remain. Till yesterday the championships were shown on Maltese Television. It was a success. After all the hard work that we put in, seeing this guestbook makes me feel proud.

Hey every1 had a BRILLIANT time in Malta and well done to the whole squad. I would like to say thanks to every1 involved in getting us there and a big thankyou to Simone and Dicker and every1 else at HQ that has helped me throughout the years and it has finally paid off.    A huge thanks to the support from the squad especially in my continuous semi finals was great help and got me going for the extra 30 sec. was one of the best weeks of my life and I will never forget it.  We had a brilliant team.  Again a big thanks Simone and Dicker for taking me out there and all the time you have both put in over the years, and thanks for getting me there in the end.

After all that has been said, I doubt we could add anymore. It has got to have been the most fun and successful championships I have had the honor to attend.  Team spirit was defo at an all time high and friendship plentiful. 
I doubt I have ever laughed so much as I did on Monday night, thank you all for that. 
Visiting my sisters grave was a very special and moving experience and having the chance to do that within such a special time made it even more wonderful. 
LEIF.  Son, it is your dad and I that should be giving out the thanks, you make us proud to be parents. You were determined not to pull out although it was obvious the pain you were in. Well Done mate, you truly deserved all 4 of your World Titles and it was nice to see you lift the spirit of your team mates with your constant verses of the squad song. lol. DEADLY AND SIMONE, You have a squad to be proud of, created my 2 very special people. Well done !! 
RICKY-LEE, Well Done m8, you are truly deserving of that title. the hard work pays off. 
JAMIE AND BOBBY, 2 Fantastic little stars, champions in the making !! Bobby your m8 Bob is missing you already.

Brian Doherty

Wow people! So cool to read all the comments here - and there was me thinking it was just me that had the time of my life!!! Why the b'jesus have i missed all the other trips abroad??? D'oh! Serious! 
No matter how perfect an event or holiday is, i reckon at the end of the day it all comes down to the people you meet and the friends you share the experience with... and i certainly met the best bunch of crazy freaky dancers that i could have hoped for!    Thank you to everyone in the WUMA family that made it the funniest & best trip ever, not sure if I'm still hurting from the fighting or from laughing so much...? The Salsa bar and Murphy's pub are in my head forever now... 
Special shout out to the coolest and most genuine monkeyboys and monkeygirls of the Samurai Finger Squad - i love you goofy animal abusers!!!! See you all at the 6footer, or on that fun-packed Desert Island. Love & Horsebites.  Timmy 2Hedz 

Tim Saxton


Hey everyone - good to see so many people enjoyed Malta. A lot of hard work went into it, and it's top bonage to see that it all paid off. Must be the first time almost 200 people have combined fighting with drinking without getting arrested! 
Big shout out to the Samurai Finger Team - keep that salute ready to draw on the next meeting. I'm just shining mine up for speedy exposure! I guess that the trip is definitely proof that "Not everybody can win, but everybody can have a good time".     Jonny 5 - let me know the progress on your up & coming Bathroom Kata. Extra point surely for a 501 button fly tug effect?    Q. How many Squad members does it take to change a light bulb?   A. 198 of course - we're a team!! 
Keep it real gang    ps - Me thinks the Italians might well make a fine pizza, but Humble Pie is most definitely not on their menu! Capiche?    Blade 2006

Danni and Sammy Pollard


Master Deadly / Simone,
As parents you must have been very proud last week, I think at times that is often forgotten, that you are there as parents aswell as, organisers, coaches, role models etc.     I would doubt anyone caould ver step into your shoes and do such a great job.   It was great standing next to you Simone and sharing that special moment when Ricky recieved his title,though the smile on his face defo made the whole trip worth it, and to see little bobby and jay make the poduim was fantastic, I will never forget Bobby Strutting up.( there were both extra special by stepping up into the next category to what they normally fight in )    Tom and Rich are always a pleasure to They both bring great characters to the squad and although it can be a while in between seeing them, they always seem to remember you and are always filled with fun. lol.    Danyel, to me was a star, when i seen the size of some of the girls in her category she did not get faised but got on with it.She is so mature to talk to and I felt I got to know her more during the trip. 
So as parents and grandparents I salute you both you are doing a fantastic job. WELL DONE TO YOU BOTH 

Mrs Taggart


Hi Deadly,Simone, Ricky and all the family just wishing you all the best for 2007 and to thank you for Malta and all that went with it, it made 2006 so very special for all of us and we look forward to traveling with you many times in 2007. I know this year is going to be great and we all look forward to meeting up with you in the near future, all the best.

Sandy, Rose and James Gaskill


Thanks to everyone for all their kind comments, although that event took over 12 months to organise and there were many times that I felt like chucking my paperwork under a moving train, I can honestly say that to see the faces of so many smiling on the rostrum made it all worth it. Seeing my three sons take places was great .For Jamie & Bobby who are regular competitors since they were 4 & 5 (they are still only 5 and 6!!) I know that they will get there most kids their age would never get on a mat let alone fight as well as they do. Ricky-Lee trains really hard and has a great attitude to martial arts, he missed out on a title many times but this year has won several British, a European and a world title, here's to many more son! There were many that took World Titles that had missed out achieving their dream and through determination and a love of the martial arts they stuck at it and got there. For those who didn't quite make it use these people as an inspiration and you can fulfill yr dreams. For those who won this time well done u deserve it, this is where the hard work starts for you! Now you are at the top you have to train twice as hard to stay there. As a World Champion you have to conduct yourself as such and set a good example to others. I saw one particular boy this year from one of the other countries who won a World title in Germany 04, this year he was cocky, arrogant and not a good ambassador for the sport, he ended up losing because he was acting cocky instead of getting his job done. When you are a World Champion everyone wants to beat you to prove a point, if you become big-headed and cocky instead of staying humble and having respect for your opponents then believe me people will lose respect for you and in my books people respecting a fighter means more than any title or trophy. Enjoy all the memories of the trip and here's to the next one!
Goldie xx
