KUGB Karate Events and News Reports
Monday 1st September 2008
Many congratulations go to Firefighter David Burnham who achieved remarkable success at this year's World Firefighters Games, becoming champion in the all-styles Karate event.
The Games, held at the brand new ECHO arena in Liverpool, attracted over 5000 competitors from across the World in over 60 sports.
David, a member of the KUGB's Tamworth Dojo and a student of Rob and Lin Welsh, successfully fought his way through the eliminations before meeting a Russian competitor in the finals. In a very exciting match David beat his opponent 6-2 to take Gold and looks forward to defending his title at the next Games in South Korea in 2010.
