Castell Alun student, Harvey, 12 is really making a name for himself in martial arts. He is a member of the Tokon Karate Academy and has recently been selected to compete in the SKFB Europe Championships held from 9th May for 2 days in Belgium.
Harvey, who is a black belt in karate, has been training since the age of 6. He recently took part in the Hasha Karate England Annual Squad Trials hoping to be selected for the current WJKA World and European Championship Squad. After a gruelling 4 hour session with 70 other hopefuls Harvey was 1 of the 13 selected.
His success continues from there as he will also be competing in the WJKA World Championships on 20th June in Holland. Harvey is modest about his success and commented, “I really enjoy karate I started at a very young age and it has really helped me build my confidence.”
