Clevedon Karate Kai

December 2016

Competition

Another great day at Weston for our winter tournament, and this year I believe we came away with more medals than we have had in many years.

First let me say that the instructors in the clubs are all proud of everyone who entered. It is a nerve racking thing to do, especially for the first time. Medal winners were:- Louis Nolan, gold in kumite and bronze in kata; Harvey Quach, bronze in kata; Lewis Cocking and Lizzie Haines, bronze in the kata team event; whilst Lizzie went on to take another bronze in the individual kata.

I would also like to thank those who turned up to help on the Saturday night and those who ran tables or helped us to clear away after the event on Sunday. Clevedon club has a lot of support from its members and it is appreciated by not just our instructors but many of the WKU clubs.
