Harrogate KTA founder and 6th Dan Master Kambiz R Ali attended the 1st International Welsh Taekwondo Championships in Cardiff this weekend, which was held at the Sport Wales International Centre. Master Ali attended the competition with just one student, eager and ready to compete in the event on Sunday 1st of July in the home of Double Olympic Gold Medalist Jade Jones. Master Paul Jones, the organiser of the championships, invited Master Ali to provide medals for the event, to which Master Ali did to an excellent standard. Medalists at the championships were very pleased with the medal quality. Team KTA fighter, Aaron Leith, won a silver medal at the championships, just losing out on gold against a far more experienced fighter. Master Ali was very pleased with the outcome of the competition and had this to say:
This has been a really enjoyable weekend for us, we have had a great time competing at the Wales International Championships and enjoyed ourselves in Cardiff. We still have a lot of work to do over July though, we have a grading next Saturday, we are competing at the London International championships the following weekend and then we have the World Taekwondo Hanmadang championships in South Korea which is going to be a very important competition for us. I want to extend my gratitude to Master Paul and his team for organising the championships this weekend, it has been a huge success and he should be very proud, me and my team really enjoyed it.
