HOLSWORTHY Karate Club enjoyed a fantastic day out at the European Karate Organisation Championships in Birmingham last month.
In total they collected four medals, two silvers and two bronze, as the club enjoyed one of their best ever days.
Instructor, Sensei Hjalmar Dentlinger, was extremely proud of his students, saying: “I’m extremely proud of everyone associated with Holsworthy Karate Club. It’s the best we’ve ever done. I was hoping for about two bronze medals but for us to get four means so much to us and we surpassed our expectations, especially the juniors.
“We’ve got lots of very talented students and most of them are destined to go onto bigger and better things. A lot of them are very young so they should keep on improving.
“The youngest to compete, Storm Piercy, did extremely well. She’s only eight and it was her first ever competition.?She got through the first round which was amazing. She puts in alot of hard work and she has so much time on her side.
“Also my assistant instructor Dan Hunt is aiming to qualify for the World Championships and he’s getting better and better all the time so he’s another one to watch.”
The students that competed are as follows:
Storm Piercey (aged 8, 6th kyu blue belt) — over 8 and under 12 kata category; Amber Dentlinger (9, 2nd kyu brown belt) — over 8 and under 12 kata category (bronze) & over 10 & under 12 kumite; Joshua Dentlinger (10, 1st dan black belt) — over 8 under 12 kata, over 10 & the under 16 under 4’9" kumite (Silver); Samantha Dentlinger (1st kyu brown belt) — women’s kata & women’s kumite; Lee Buckingham (21 — 8th kyu yellow belt), Jordy Daley (24 — kyu yellow belt) & Keith Martin (22, 8th kyu yellow belt) — all competed in the adult male under brown kata (Martin — Bronze) under brown kumite and team kumite; Mark Hardwick (17, 1st Dan black belt) adult male above brown kata; Dan Hunt (21, 1st dan black belt) — adult male above brown kata & brown kumite; Sensei Hjalmar Dentlinger (4th dan) — adult male above brown kata and kumite; Hardwick, Hunt and Sensei Dentlinger also competed in team kumite where they finished second.
Sensei Dentlinger puts the success down to a small but tight-knit group and the students willingness to learn.
He added: “We train very very hard when we do train but it’s also a very fun club where everyone is very welcoming. We’re like a community within the club and we would like to grow as much as we can. We train at the community college and the leisure centre so there’s opportunties for everyone.
“We can help you install self-confidence and a belief that anything is possible as well as the obvious skills that learning karate can teach you.”
