A KARATE club coach from the region has won bronze at an international competition for the second year in a row.

There was over 1200 competitors at the event, from 16 countries. It is the biggest championships in Britain.
Sensei Jim Howard, 6th Dan head coach, said: “I was very proud of Senga to get third last year, but to do it again this year is a great achievement.”
She is a coach at Stewartry Karate Club and works with P1-P4 at Castle Douglas High School every Wednesday night and also helps coach at the Kirkcubright, Dalbeattie and New Abbey classes.
