Newly formed Thames Karate Kai getting off to a great start on the competition circuit.
The Central England International Open at Worcester.
We took along 6 students, Oliver Russell, Alice Robson, Charlie Robson, Matthew Sharp, Bailey Burnett and Owen. All competitors gave their absolute best on the tatami, at what is a formidable competition, with most students managing to progress through rounds to the next stage of the draw. 2 competitors managed to get through enough rounds to medal with Oliver Russell and Alice Robson both taking a Bronze in the Male 14-15 years -54 kilos and Girls 14-15 +54 kilos respectively. Oliver and Alice joined forces in the 13-15 years team and also took a Bronze in this category.
Ipswich comp – 2 golds for Alice Robson and Bailey Burnett, 3 Bronze for Charlie Robson and Matthew Sharp kumite and kata.
