KUGB National Kyu Grade Championships

15 March 2020

Leeds Shotokan Karate Club student Liam Chawner was in action at the KUGB Kyu Grade Championships in Prestatyn, Wales.

Despite being our only competitor at the event Liam performed brilliantly on his way to a Gold medal in the Kumite and a Bronze Medal in the Kata event.

Liam has consistently been a leading example amongst the club Kyu grades. He very rarely misses a class and will always train with great spirit, determination and a fighting attitude. 

 

Congratulations to Liam on an exceptional performance!

AMA National Open Championships

1 Mar 2020

On 1st of March 2020 Leeds Shotokan Karate Club took a small squad of senior competitors to compete in the AMA National Open Championships. The competition was a chance to compete against international competitors from many different styles of Karate.

The standard of competition was very high with World and European all styles champions competing across a range of categories so it offerend LSKC students a change to challenge themselves against high calibre, and unknown opponents.

Ethan Armstrong continued his winning ways despite being in a tremendously difficult category. He took gold in the Mens u85kg section.

Sensei Caroline McGrath fought exceptionally well on her way to a silver medal in the Ladies +65kg category.

Nathan Brady was entered into the Mens Open Weigh Shobbu Ippon section and performed brilliantly, fighting with great spirit and determination to claim the silver medal.

The mens team fought in the rotation category and saw Luciano Zanuni, Jade Stapleton Smith, Nathan Brady and ethan Armstrong competing. Unfortunately Luciano suffered an injury to his shoulder and could not continue to complete. The other three gentlemen put in a stellar performance to claim the bronze Medal.

Gold - Ethan Armstron - Mens u85kg Kumite

Silver - Sensei Caroline McGrath - Ladies +65kg Kumite

Silver - Nathan Brady - Mens Shobbu Ippon Kumite

Bronz - Leeds Shotokan - Mens Team Rotation Kumite

"Karate is about many things, but first and foremost, it is about training"
