So...you want to be a champion?
Every year we as a club head out to WKU World championships with some of our fighters as part of team England.
The experience is amazing and our chief instructor Wez Lucas has been attending world championships all over the world for fifteen years.
With our last team going out to WKU World championships 2014 in London we sent ten competitors and brought back 19 medals! (8 gold, 6 silver and 5 bronze)
In order to be part of the team you must train at least three sessions per week and attend monthly squad training sessions with Master Wolf in Margate. There are fees to pay, some of us get sponsored to attend!
