Karate: Elementary for Watson's studentsThe Liverpool branch of the UK National Karate Squad added four medals to their ever growing list of accolades.
Last Sunday the Liverpool branch of the UK National Karate Squad traveled to the Kizuna World Cup. This was a prestigious event with some very good clubs, associations and federations in attendance.

The competition was packed, attendance was high and all competitors had their eyes on the title of World Champion. Squad coach Pete Watson said: “The Liverpool squad had nine athletes in attendance and all our kata competitors made the finals - this is a great result at this level.”

Daniel Jevons however went one step further. He stepped up to the ring in the final, walked in confidently after many long hours of preparation and gave a performance that earned him the title of World Kata Champion in his age division.

Watson said “The whole squad are extremely proud and happy for Daniel. He’s such a level headed, nice, young man. You would never know he was a world karate champion – plus we can’t forget his silver in the kumite to, it was a great day all round for him”.
