Craig Ryan travelled to Scotland on the weekend of the 5th September to impose his skills on the tatami in the high quality British Open Karate tournament.



A packed schedule for Craig, who entered the -75kg Under21, Open weight division and in addition, for the first time, stretching his skills into the senior male -75kg weight division.



Craig showed confidence and composure, across each of the categories, competing right to the closing stages of each category, finishing with three bronze medals in each of the divisions.



President of NI Karate Board, and chief instructor of the NIKW, was delighted with the results, commenting, “Craig has again showed great determination and strength, competing beyond his age group. As part of our training regime, we train students to stretch themselves against not just their peers, but beyond. This helps develop a strong and continuous improvement culture, congratulations to him”.
