Miss Harper competed in a regional karate tournament for GKR this weekend and was lucky enough to win two medals.
She won a gold medal for kumite (fighting) and a silver medal for Kata (a pattern of moves or shapes). She has been practising karate for nearly four years. Miss Harper competed against other instructors in her age group.
This means that she is now the East Midland'
s Karate Fighting Champion and is already looking forward to another tournament in the summer which will hopefully lead her to compete at a national level later in the year.
We are all proud of her efforts. Well done, Miss Harper.
