Scottish Grand Prix
Wednesday, February 5, 2020
SKE/SAKAI launched our season off well @ Scottish Karate Grand Prix
Overall we achieved 4-GOLD's, 4-SILVER's and 8-BRONZE medals.
The day started off with the Dailly sisters making it on to the podium once again in the Girls Under 4ft 6" category. Alicia achieved a Bronze medal and Jenna made it to the finals and got Silver. Good solid performances from both these young ladies.
We had an excellent performance in the Boys Under 4ft 6" category taking Gold, Silver and Bronze, the category was very competitive. The final was between Kory and Armaan. Kory was leading 1-0 and with only one second left on the clock Armaan scored with a body kick turning the match around and finishing 2-1 in favour of Armaan. A thrilling end to the final!
Mathew Pratt was the last person to step on to the tatami on Sunday 4th February, having already put in a shift at the pre-European Championship training with the National Team. Matthew came out all guns blazing in the Cadet +63Kgs, not dropping a single point and securing Gold. Great final preparation from Matthew who is flying off to Budapest on Wednesday. We will of course keep you posted on Matthews progression at the European Championships here later in the week.
