The WKC World Championships are inching closer and closer everyday and for 15 fighters from the BCKA will be the culmination of months and months hard training.
This year the World Championships are being held in Albufeira, Portugal during the first week of November. The following fighters alongside BCKA Chief Instructor, BCKA England Team Coach and WKC England Team Points Manager, Alex Barrowman, will be travelling to Portugal to compete as part of the WKC England Team:
Alex Barrowman Jnr, Corby - Points
Barry Kang, Kettering - Points
Cat Harris, Rushden - Points and Continuous
Daniel Balch, Lincolnshire - Points and Continuous
Jo Redman, Rushden - Continuous
Kevin Williams, Corby - Points and Continuous
Kieren Wilson, Corby - Points and Continuous
Lee Murray, Corby - Points
Lewis Gemmill, Corby - Points
Max Halligan, Corby - Points
Nicola Gemmill, Corby - Points
Reece Dalton, Lincolnshire - Points and Continuous
Richard Faller, Kettering - Points
Richie Wooton, Corby - Points
Ryan Winham, Corby - Continuous
All of these fighters qualified for and “won” their place in the team at the WKC England National Championships in March 2010 by coming 1st, 2nd or 3rd in their respective categories. The BCKA actually had more fighters qualify but not all were able to take up their position in the team.
Everyone at the BCKA would like to wish the above fighters and their coaches all the best at the World Championships. For those who are interested and part of our BCKA Facebook Page updates will be posted whilst the team are in Portugal to let you know what is going on.
