My Karate Experience and Competition

I have practiced karate for about 8 years and started to compete at age 11. I have enjoyed every step so far. Recently I was awarded 3rd best 14-15 year old fighter in Britain for individual fighting. I was also awarded 3rd best 14-15 year old team fighter in England.

Last Sunday, I travelled to Northampton with my karate club to compete in the BIKO closed championships. A kata is a combination involving several moves including punches, kicks, blocks and turns. I managed to place 4th, sadly not achieving a medal.

We then competed in team katas involving my friend Tanaya and I. We were the third team to go up and compete and I am very happy to say we performed really well and achieved the highest score of the whole day with 21.8 points. After each team competed we knew we had won. I have competed in many team katas with Tanaya since I was 10 years old.

After we celebrated our first major win of the day, I had to get ready and warmed up for individual kumite (fighting). I was determined to win this category. I won my first fight 1-0, which was a good start.  I knew I was in a good position so kept focused and practiced lots. As the final fight came up I started to get butterflies in my stomach. However, after what seemed much longer than 2 minutes, I had won the fight 6-5 and was crowned the winner!

With two great wins and a happy 4th place, I returned to Beckenham victorious. All of my team did extremely well. I can’t wait for the next competition!!
