Ya­makai Karate’s Ruther­glen mem­bers have picked up a host of medals in the past two months.

Erin O’Brien and Reece Camero bagged sil­ver medals at the Ste­warty Open in Dum­fries in April which was largely for novice com­peti­tors.

Sarah O’Brien, Kieran Cowan and Michael Steel took home bronze.

Ya­makai fight­ers had been in­volved in seven events over the last cou­ple of months and won a to­tal of 13 gold 15 sil­ver and 19 bronze awards in to­tal.

And their ef­forts were helped by the Ruther­glen mem­bers who at­tended the Mead­ow­bank Youth Open in Ed­in­burgh.

Gold went to Glen Dingil and Erin O’Brien while Michael Steel picked up a bronze award.

Two Ya­makai mem­bers at­tended the CIKA Open in Liver­pool with both suc­cess­fully medalling. Louis Galasso took gold in the boys 12-13 years plus 50k cat­e­gory and Calum MacDon­ald tak­ing bronze in the Junior Male un­der 67k cat­e­gory.

Ya­makai mem­bers then trav­elled to Cum­bria for the 40th Cum­brian Open. Isaac Ed­dle­ston took gold in the 12-13yrs plus 50 ki­los ku­mite with Calum MacDon­ald tak­ing bronze in the Junior Male Open. Ya­makai’s cadet male squad took sil­ver in their team event.

Ya­makai classes stay open through­out the hol­i­day pe­riod and are now look­ing to en­rol new mem­bers to the club. Be­gin­ners are ac­cepted from five years old and up­wards.

As a sum­mer spe­cial, new mem­bers will get one month’s free train­ing for the month of July.
