5 Red Tigers selected for the JKS Continental Cup in Belgium

We are so pleased to announce that five of our students have been selected to compete for JKS England in the upcoming International tournaments.

This is an amazing opportunity for them and we are tremendously proud of them all for getting picked.

The students below have been chosen to travel to Belgium from the 1st-4th September with the JKS England Squad and compete in the JKS Continental Cup.

This is a great honour and needless to say I am sure they will all train as much as possible for this event and do their very best.

Congratulations to you all!

Grace Baron has also been selected in a very small, elite team of 9 squad members to compete in the Basel Open Masters 2017 in Switzerland.  This will be from the 15th to the 18th September. Grace has been chosen to compete in Individual Kata. What a brilliant opportunity for Grace to compete at the next level on the international stage. She knows she has an enormous opportunity and we are certain will work so hard to prepare herself for this event. Huge well done.
