Well done to Zak and Lori-Ann for representing England

We would like to say a belated congratulations to Lori-Ann Moran and Zak Thomas-Blackhurst for representing the English Karate Federation Northern Region Kumite at the battle of the teams in Rotterdam.

Huge thanks to their coaches for giving them the opportunity and to Julie Moran and Amanda Thomas for enabling them to take part.

Well done đŸ™‚
