Success for club


NEWMILLERDAM Karate Club has once again kicked, chopped and blocked its way to district success.

imagesThe club took 22 of its members to a friendly inter club karate competition at Sharlston Community Centre on Weeland Road, and did battle with Sharlston’s Hanshin Karate Club and Saiyuuki Karate Club from Ackworth.

Newmillerdam walked away as champions for the second year in a row.

Chief instructor Ann Walker said: “We took 22 competitors and came away with 29 of the 46 trophies. Some students even won more than one event.

“We received a grant last year from the Local Network Fund to buy mats and fighting equipment and have never look back since, the club just seems to be going from strength to strength.”
