MEMBERS of local Shotokan2000 Karate Clubs captured medals at the recent Scottish Grand Prix, continuing an impressive sequence of success.

Levenmouth’s Joel Duffin won a bronze medal in the over 75kg Kumite event, while Steve Mckay (Anstruther club) also won bronze in the under 75kg section.

James Ford Jnr (Leven club) took a bronze medal in the over-18 years Kata event and Jay Hogg (Leven club) won gold in the 14-15 years Kata.

“It was a brilliant day for Shotokan2000 Karate Clubs as only 10 members went to the competition and we lifted four medals,” said coach James Ford Snr.

“It was an even better day for Jay, as he got his first gold medal.”

This strengthened Jay and James’ positions for the overall Grand Prix, as both had been in the final four of all three championships to date.

James had two gold medals and a bronze, while Jay had two bronze and a gold.
