WEST MIDLANDS KARATE OPEN

Sunday 2nd September 2018 saw Ruach karate take a group of students to Cannock Chase Leisure Centre for the 1st West Midlands Karate Open organised and run by Sensei Joe Mongan and Sensei Rob Bingham. For some of the students it was the first time they had ventured outside of Ruach to compete and whilst this was the first competition for the West Midlands Karate Open, the standard was extremely high with several National competitors in attendance as well as one youth Olympian.

Our team gave their best in Kata and Kumite coming home with three medals spread across the disciplines of kata, kick master and kumite. A massive well done to Anesha, Callum and Lotti who all did themselves proud.
