ESKA Championships 2012 - 7th December to 9th December

2012 ESKA European Shotokan Karate Championships - the KUGB England Squad


Selected members of the KUGB's England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland Karate Squads attended the ESKA European Championships in a snowy Belgrade from Friday 7th to Sunday 9th December.

The event, for Cadet, Junior and Senior competitors, was held over three days in the Serbian capital and the English Squad members achieved quite an impressive tally of medals.

Hisham Saif did extremely well taking the Senior Mens Kata event with an outstanding performance of Goju Shiho Sho. He was also part of the team along with Jack Somers and Chris Hamilton who took Gold in the Junior Team Kata with a tremendously sharp and well timed Sochin.

Holly Sterling was very unfortunate, after reaching the semi finals of both the Senior Ladies Kata and Kumite events, under Doctors orders Holly was unable to continue due to injury.

Many other placings were achieved and the KUGB's full results are listed below.
