UWK World Championship congratulations.....
Could you all put your hands together please and congratulate our SKA members who recently took part in the inaugural United World Karate Championships held in Slovenia.
They performed brilliantly as members of the all styles U.W.K-England squad with a great number of them coming home with world medals. In the team kumite gold medal went to Emily Waring and silver to Kath King; in the individual kumite Emily and Kath won bronze; in kata James Cape and Emily Waring won silver and Kath King won bronze. Rebecca Cameron and Jack Cooper both reached the kata finals and the the rest of our squad of Morgan Hughes, Cameron Lord, Rebecca Fisher, Jess Bate and John Cameron were just pipped for podium places.
Many congratulations to the instructors of their clubs, Kyojin, CMAC, Woolston, Skipton and Koshido-ryu, for preparing such a talented bunch of competitors and of course many thanks to SKA squad coach sensei Paul Graham for his many months of work both before and during the championships. On the refereeing side well done also to our senior WUKF international official Jo' Fisher.
