Hi Everyone, we are approaching a very busy period for Young Gloves (When are we not lol) so I thought I’d just touch base with you all to make sure that everyone knows what is happening so that you can put all the dates in your diaries.

Karate World Championships!
Congratulations to 8 of our squad members who have been chosen by WKU (World Karate Union) to represent England later this year in the World Karate Championships. They will be travelling to Greece in Oct to compete against the very best in the world, and I have very high hopes of International success. This again proves the quality of our club and the martial artists that we produce.
