It was a bright start to the day as we left Cocks Moors Woods Leisure Centre bound for Wolverhampton to compete in the first HDKI International Competition. In total seven students made the journey to test their metal in the heat of battle. Anthony; Martha, Lotti, Domia, Omar, Farah and Dontae took part in both the kata and kumite events.
For some it was the first outing to an external competition, for others a chance to add more medals to their ever increasing tally. I can safely say that all those who represented Ruach Shotokan Karate Association did so with gusto and brought their best game to the table. The medal tally for the day was 1 silver and 3 bronze and the icing on the cake was the desire to enter more competitions. A massive well done everyone.
