Fortknocks Kimura Shukokai Karate club recently returned from the Kimura Cup championships 2013 with a well deserved 3 Gold, 7 Silver & 3 Bronze & the special Kimura Cup.
Emma Bradley continued her continued form, and rising potential to take the Gold in the Girls 12-15yrs Kumite event, she also defied the odds to storm into the final of the Cadet Senior Kata 12-15yrs to take the Silver. Her outstanding display was also rewarded by being awarded the Best Competitor of the tournament and winning the Kimura Cup itself.
Paul Thompson held his nerve and took a comfortable win in the Mens Junior Kumite event.
Sensei Audun Daniels took Gold in the Mens Senior Kumite event.
Joshua Jones took Silver in the Boys 12-13yrs Lightweight Kumite event. Callum Sheldon took the Silver in the Boys 12-13yrs Heavyweight Kumite section.
Bradley Smith showed some fine form to get into the final of the Cadet 9-11yrs Junior Kata event, and ended up with a Silver. Team mate Matthew Anderson took the Bronze in the same event.
The team events bought some great success also, with Emma Bradley, Harry Shepherd & Callum Sheldon missing out on the win but a very well deserved Silver in the Junior 12-15yrs Team Kumite event.
Emma & Callum also took Silver in the Cadet 10-14yrs Senior Team Kata event. Matthew Anderson & Bradley Smith took the Silver in the Cadet 10-14yrs Junior Team Kata event.
Bradley Smith, Matthew Anderson & Lucy Sheldon took a very well deserved bronze in the Cadet 9-11yrs Team Kumite event.
Sensei Audun Daniels was very pleased with the outstanding results.
WELL DONE TO ALL!!!!
