After some fantastic performances battling through five rounds, Joe Harte became the first student from the Coppull Dojo to become the EKF National Kumite Champion . Isaac Whittle-Hooper also competed in the Kata and Kumite but was unlucky not to progress through the first rounds due to very large entries and a very high standard but gained some valuable experience.
