Last weekend saw the Frontier School of Karate and Kickboxing’s 2011 Winter Championships held at Heathfield Leisure Centre, Heathfield. This interclub event is open to all FSK students and is held twice a year.  The championships give students a chance to compete which could then lead to them competing at a Regional, National or International level.

With three areas running students competed in Kata (Forms) and Kumite (Sparring) in Karate and bouts for kickboxing. Students from all over Sussex, Surrey and Kent attended.

13 year old, Lloyd Pellatt, a student at Battle Abbey School who lives in Robertsbridge won the FSK Grand Champion - ‘Donna Taylor Trophy’ for accumulation of most points over two events in both Kata and Kumite. Winning this trophy is very significant to FSK as it is named after a former student, Donna Taylor who was tragically killed in a car accident four years ago. Lloyd Pellatt follows Sophie Barber who was FSK Grand Champion last year.

Great displays of martial arts were seen throughout the competition, with Maxine Barker winning the girls Advanced Kumite karate section. Greg McAgnus of Heathfield and Andrei Keyte of Eastbourne drew their two round bout in the advanced grade kickboxing contest.

Paul Simmons, Chief Instructor of FSK said ‘ the competitors showed great competitive spirit with students of all ages taking part. It is excellent to see new talent who may go on and compete Nationally or Internationally in the future.’
