WAKO British Championships 2013
On the 16th February, 6 MWTA members travelled to Birmingham to compete in the WAKO British Championships.
For MWTA members this tournament has become a regular fixture over the last few years as it always proves to be one of the toughest this country has to offer.
From the team that competed the biggest performance came from Daryl Owen. After fighting his way through a large division, he won in the final by the smallest of margins, leaving the rest of the team on the edge of their seat. He competed in the Junior -69kg division and is now set to make the move up to the adult division.
Other medalist were Joann Rolison (Bronze) and Adam Boycott (Bronze). Both were disappointed not to reach the final but they put in good solid performances.
The next tournament on the MWTA calendar is out very own British Championships on the 4th May, which is held at the Winter Gardens in Margate. Full details are on the events page.
