Aden Pike, a Teaching Assistant at Liskeard School recently gained a place on the WKU England Karate Team to compete in Orlando, Florida, for the WKU World Karate Championships which took place in September.

Liskeard School held a dress down day to raise money for Aden. The money raised went towards the training and entry fees as well as helping Aden get to America to compete.

Aden competed in both Kata and Kumite (Forms and Fighting) and became World Champion winning a gold and silver medal.

Aden said “The world championships in America was a fantastic experience and one that I can't thank the school enough for being able to help towards. Going there was something I was already over the moon about, but to come away with a world title and a silver medal didn't even cross my mind. I’m now just looking forward to European championships in Czech Republic in May.”

Meanwhile budding young Taekwondo student Jamie Graham went to Swindon and achieved his black belt. The performance was attended and judged by Taekwondo masters from around the world.

Jamie travelled to Bristol at the beginning of the year for his pre-grading which allowed him to grade for his black belt. Gradings were made on technical, patterns, kicking, self-defence and free sparring, before a test on the theory and a power test. Finally a spirit test was competed which involved extreme testing of fitness.

Jamie said “I found out that I had passed a few days after the grading. It took me six and half years to get my black belt and in the run up to the grading I was doing about an hour of training a day.”
