IKKU National Champion 2018

On Saturday I fought at the Irish Kenpo Karate Union Open which brought some of the top fighters from Ireland together to compete for the first National competition of the year. After a couple of very tough fights, I managed to come out on top and win another National Title in Karate. This one is my first at the higher weight category of -61kg and with the level of opposition being really high I’m buzzing to have bagged the gold! Next up for me and the Irish squad is a trip to Austria on Thursday to take on the Worlds best at the Karate 1 Series A event in Salzburg.

Thanks for all the support; I’ll be updating you when I arrive back next week!! I’ll leave you with some photos and clips of the highlights from my fights on Saturday.

Fought against the amazing Jennifer Byrne in a really close final.
Front Row L to R: Niamh Hogan (Bronze), Caradh O’Donovan (Gold), Jennifer Byrne (Silver), Katerina Susko (Bronze)
Thanks to ROS Nutrition for supporting me on the way to winning Gold!
