Sensei Paul makes an impressive debut as Wales’ new kata coach at the 2011 WSKA World Championships in Chicago with Lloyd Birt of Bargoed SKC coming 2nd in the Cadet Men’s Kata and 3rd in the Junior Men’s Kata. Wales went on to further success with the Men’s Team Kumite coming 3rd by beating South Africa in the quarter finals only to narrowly lose to the eventual winners Germany in the semi finals. Certainly putting Wales on the map that’s for sure… Brilliant!!
Congratulations to everyone who competed at the Kyu Grade Championship! A huge number of us (26 in total!) went along to Prestatyn to compete and spectate. A massive well done to everyone who competed! Ikkyo came away with lots of shiny medals and trophies, with winners……….
