Karate Kids

Thorns students Maise (Year 8), Sam (Year 9) and Amber (Year 10) were all selected to represent AKA Great Britain in a martial arts competition that took place in London. The girls were victorious, winning a Gold medal each in the team event. Sam won Silver and Bronze medals in the team fighting event.

Soon after, all three students were in action once again, and again representing Great Britain, this time in Ireland. Maisie won Silver in the individual event, narrowly missing out on Gold by the finest of margins. Amber achieved a Bronze medal in her age category, and Sam won three medals – a Gold in the team event and 2 Silvers in the individual events. In a more recent event held at Thorns, Maise won a Gold medal in the individual event.

Both have been selected for the European Championships to be held in Romania in April 2017. We congratulate all three students on the achievements and look forward to celebrating and sharing their future success
