SOUTH Tyneside’s all-conquering karate kids warmed up for a shot at international honours with a great performance at a major competition.
Members of Boldon’s Dokan karate club continue their 2014 season with more victories at Penrith, Cumbria, where they were taking part at the Chojinkai open style karate championship.
Forty two youngsters from the club took part in the event – ahead of 17 of them representing England at the World Shotokan Karate Unions Championships, being held in Kosovo next month.
The club finished the day with 12 golds, 21 silver and 21 bronze medals.
The club has more than 150 youngsters training in Boldon, Whitburn and Sunderland.
