Three members of Ashington NKA (Northumberland Karate Academy) have been selected onto the KUGB national squad representing England at the European and World Championships.
All three are on the Kata (set forms) squad and two, Gemma Gibson and Niamh Duddridge, are on the kumite squad team.
They were picked to go to the European Championships last November in Zurich and showed great promise for the future.
Ashington has a proud record over 25 years of producing good karate to the young and not so young who practice enjoyment for many reasons other than competitions.
