The 2012 Karate England National Open was held on 30th September 2012. This competition brings together Karate-Ka from different Associations and Styles under the Karate England umberella which includes most of the practising Karate-Ka in the UK. Five of our York Elite warriors made the trip to Loughborough: Ryan Stead; Jason Crowther; James McNichol; Sammi King and Emily Drysdale and as usual did the club and themselves proud.

Of particluar note were the performances in the Kata competition where Jason got a Gold Medal for first place in the Senior Kata Finals with Ryan also winning the Silver Medal in the same category. Big congrats also to James for his fifth place in Kata.

Ryan also added to his collection with a Bronze Medal in the Kumite 63Kg class
