WSKO South Wales Open 24 March 2019

What a fantastic day we had at the WSKO South Wales Open competition today. We went along not really expecting anything, and just hoping to learn. We came back with a silver medal for Cassidy in kata and a bronze for Louis in kumite. It could have been even more. Callum drew the eventual winner in the first round in his kata category. He and Cassidy were denied bronze in the pairs kata by a 2-1 flags verdict which could very easily have gone the other way, and to be honest I thought it should have. Louis lost his kumite semi-final by the narrowest possible 1-0 margin against one of Bristol's fighters, and was always in the contest. These three have really done the club proud today. Well done!
