We took a small group of SKCE squad members to the UK Open Karate Championships in East London.
This was an open competition for all styles of Karate and operating with seven tatami's.
There were all lot of competitors and for the newer members of the squad in particular, it was a good way to gain more experience. Although we did not win many medals, on this occasion, there we some terrific performances from our squad members.
Ollie Hood took third place in the Male Cadets Individual Kumite and Leon Gordon, who only decided to enter on the day and was, in his own words, "very rusty" came third in the Individual Senior Male Kumite.
Take a look at the video below.
