The Welsh Junior Open is arguably the biggest event of the year for our junior squad; it’s the highest level of competition that they face in Wales and always attracts a number of strong teams from the rest of the British Isles too.

Our squad this year was up to the challenge and came away with several good results, including first national medals for Ben, Lucy and Charlotte and gold for Jordan and Ethan in the kata pairs. The future looks bright for many of these young competitors and we’ll give them all the support and encouragement that they need on the way. Well done team!
