Big medal haul at the Karate Do Federation Comp in Essex

JKS England Squad members took no less than 40 medals at the first competition of the year down in Essex on Sunday 17th March.

Congratulations to all the Squad on this fantastic haul of medals, many of which were golds!

The following Red Tigers were in action:

Sam Jackson, Louis Johnson, Matthew Affleck, Kairo Fellone, Jaime Pratley, Ellis Pindoria-Stott, Lori-Ann Moran, Georgie Dyal, Grace Baron, Abby Fielding, Molly Austin-Hogsden, Lola Fellone and Izzy Baron.

Congratulations on some fantastic performances, remember you are brave for just giving it a go and you’ve gained some valuable experience. Well done to you all!

Our guys did well on their first proper run out of 2019 managing 17 medals between them.

Big thanks to Mike Baron Sensei for supporting our students as always and the coaches who helped them out on the day.

All of your hard work and persistence is certainly paying off. I think some of our students just need to work on their HAPPY face for the photos and we are sorted!
