Freestyle Karate World Champion

Congratulations to Rebecca in Year 9 who has become multiple World Champion in Freestyle Karate.

Rebecca fought in the -45KG 13-15 year category and defeated challengers from England, Wales, South Africa, India and Scotland, unanimously winning all 5 fights to take the title in Blackpool last week. Rebecca has been training for just under two years and is a member of the Tatakai Karate club in Sheffield where she trains over 6 hours a week and is a junior instructor.

This was Rebecca’s first world championship level competition and as a result of her dominating performance is being inducted into the Freestyle Karate Hall of Fame at an awards ceremony in Liverpool next month. Rebecca’s stunning World Championship success and her forthcoming induction into the Hall of Fame is an amazing sporting achievement and we would like to wish her every success for the future.
