Congratulations to Ashley Hall who becomes our newest sandan (3rd Dan) at the club after passing his grading today at the University of Bath Sports Village.
Ashley started training at Backwell Karate in 2013, when he started at the University of Bristol and joined from the dojo of Sensei Rob Welsh, Tamworth SKC, where he continues to train outside of term time.
Since joining Backwell Karate, Ashley has become a valued member of the club and also our competition team, having become KUGB Southern Region Champion in Junior Kumite, Team Kumite and Team Kata. He has also become WTKO Irish Team Kata Champion and Team Kata Silver medallist at the JKS England National Championships.
We're delighted for Ashley and look forward to continuing to see him thrive at the club. Well done Ash!
