On Sunday 8th September, thirty-one members headed across to the West Midlands Karate Open in Cannock. The event proved to be a very long and exhausting day but the standard or competition on show was very high which was great for our squad.
During the course of the day we saw some outstanding performances and all team members acquitted themselves superbly on the day, whether they medalled or not. We finished the day with a very credible 3 Gold, 6 Silver and 6 Bronze medals. Thank you to all coaches for their hard work on a very long hard day and to our very patient supports who we are ever thankful to coming along to support the squad.
Overall an outstanding day for the Walsall Karate Dojo squad!
