International Rengokai Kata tournament
Georgia Slocombe, Chloe Slocombe and Fynn Clements from Dunmow Kyokushinkai Karate Club travelled to Barcelona to compete in the International Rengokai Kata tournament that was held in Tordera, Barcelona on Saturday 12th November 2016.
Being the only English competitors in their respective categories this was a great opportunity to gain valuable experience in competing in an overseas event and also test themselves against Spanish opposition.
Chloe, age 10 competed against over 30 girls in the age 10-11 category and came 2nd place after narrowly missing out on 1st place and Fynn, also age 10, managed 1st place in the boys age 10-11 category.
Unfortunately Georgia age 15, was unable to come away with a podium finish in a tough category in this competition however 2 weeks ago she managed 2nd place whilst competing in the girls 155cm+ individual clicker event at this year's ‘Severn Challenge Cup of Europe' Tournament that was held in Cardiff, Wales on the 29th October.
These students from Dunmow all worked very hard to be selected to represent their country at these tournaments, which lead to these excellent results.
