Central England Open Competition

On the 18th October, Khalsa went to the Central England competition. With only three competitors, they came home with 1 bronze!

Jenna Cato was first up. In the first round, she was up against someone who had beaten her before. Although she fought well, she unfortunately lost 2-4. Unlucky Jenna.

Next to fight, was Zuko Robb. He had quite a large category. He won his first fight 2-0, his second fight 1-0 and in the semis he lost 0-2! Bronze!

Well done Zuk, a great achievement in such a big comp.

The final Khalsa member to fight was Fran Hardcastle. She had a bye in the first round but lost in the second round, due to injury.

Everyone fought great, well done to everyone who went!
