4 August 2018 – Cambridge visits JKA Malta

Four members of Cambridge Karate Dojo visited JKA Malta in St Julians, Malta, on 4th August. In the soaring heat, Dario Chircop sensei (Chief Instructor of JKA Malta, 5th Dan) and Ken sensei shared the teaching, broken up by many water breaks!

23 June 2018 – JKAE National Championships, K2, Crawley

Three of our regular members from Cambridge Karate Dojo competed at the Nationals:
Joe – veterans kata: performed Jion in the last 8 but did not quite make it through to the last four; veterans kumite: lost in the last 8 to the eventual winner.


Max – veterans kata: did not get through to the last four; veterans kumite: a combination of luck of draws meant he found himself in the SF; fought valiantly but lost, received a bronze medal.


Zelda – Senior ladies kata – performed Kanku-dai in the last 8 but did not get through to the last 4; Senior ladies kumite – fought a good fight against the eventual winner (World Championships Team Kumite twice silver medalist) in SF, received a bronze medal.


Well done to all three!
