On Sunday 5th September ESKA Instructors Matthew Potter & Max Threadwell alongside ESKA Members Joshua Wright & Alfie Hannent attended the University of Birmingham to compete at the GB Open Karate Championships.

This was the first time any of them had competed outside of an ESKA event for at least 18months.

Congratulations to Sensei Max Threadwell for securing gold in the 18-35 Adult Male Individual Ippon Kumite category. The first time competing as an Adult.
