It turned into a challenging day for the York Karate squad at the North East Open Championships. The squad put in a magnificent performance with a number of members performing exceptionally well but just missing out on medals at the final hurdle.
The younger squad members showed the way by securing a bronze medal in the team kumite event by winning their initial round in emphatic style. The other medal of the day came from Kieren who easily won his opening round but came across a tough competitor in the match for the gold medal. Nevertheless, he took a silver medal back to York for his efforts.
