NIKW students at Banzai Cup 2014 International

NIKW students took part in the recent Banzai Cup held in Berlin, Germany on the weekend of the 20th/21st Sept.



Adding to recent British 4 Nation title earlier in the year, James Brunton took on a highly competitive category securing Bronze in his weight category whilst in the Senior Male Open Weight Kumite section James took the gold medal and top title.


Congratulations to him.

Craig Ryan, fellow junior kumite competitor, also took part in his own category, and gained some vital international experience. although no medals were taken, the experience gained will be invaluable.

Competing at these competitions is vital for preparation for future tournaments.
Both Kumite stars train regularly at NIKW clubs in which they pass this knowledge on to fellow members. The NIKW regularly holds specialist Kumite training sessions, which all members can avail of, training with experienced competition fighters.
