Lanarkshire Karate Academy kids in the medals

Youngsters from Lanarkshire Karate Academy tasted medal success at an inter-club competition earlier this month.

The Airdrie-based outfit held their annual LKA Children’s Club competition, with youngsters taking on their team-mates to take home prizes in various categories.

For some, it was their first time in a competitive environment and LKA sensei Chantelle Allan was impressed with what she saw from her students.

She said: “Congratulations to all on their fantastic results and to all kids who took part, especially those who took part in competition karate for the very first time. A massive well done to all junior members who took part.
