Karate Wales Success at the British International Open


Karate Wales sent a strong squad to Crawley on Saturday 26th January for the 22nd Annual British International Karate Open.

Due to WKF Statute 21.9, the majority of the squad were making their first appearance at this event, but are slowly getting used to the slightly different rules being used outside WKF Tournaments and this was displayed in the excellent results for the Squad.

Furthermore; Andrew Jones of the WKA was honoured to be announced as 'Official of The Day'.
