Khalsa Champions have had a very busy month, with competitions, olympic display, gradings and two students competing in two different world championships.

JKA World Championships
Stephen Cohen - 4th Dan black belt karateka from Wimbledon competed in the 12th Hirano Cup competition in Wakayama City - Japan against 5 other nations recently, and claimed 3rd place. Stephen performed extremely well under immense pressure as the defending champion. He won the cup twice in the past. "I'm a little disappointed because I had my eyes on gold, but am still greatful that I didn't come empty handed", said Stephen.

WKF World Youth Cup Championships
Sophie Santillo -1st Dan Black belt karateka from Mortlake competed in the WKF Youth Cup Championships in Greece. Sophie competed against 4 other nations and claimed 2nd place. Sophie performed very well and is showing her maturity to fight at top level.

Sensei Sat commented "To have two students from total different era's competing at such high level and medaling is truly immense!! Steven a 4th Dan practitioner in Goju has an excellent competition record and to continue to compete is amazing!!! Sophie has astonished everyone with her amazing record this year in competition and recognition in her sports! I am very very proud of both Stephen and Sophie, both students are shining examples of courage and commitment what ever the age!!! WELL DONE BOTH OF YOU from all at the club!!!"
