This weekend, Emma Ruthven travelled with others from her club at Shitokai Scotland to compete in Berlin at the Banzai International Karate Open.
This was a huge competition with over 1400 entrants in total, and was of an extremely high standard.
Emma competed in the Female Cadet Kata category and got all the way to the final, losing narrowly 3.2 to the Belgian National Champion.
Another brilliant performance from Emma and outstanding preparation for the Worlds in a couple of weeks time.
Next stop for Emma on the road to the worlds in Tenerife, is Bialsko Biala in Poland for the Polish Open, this weekend 13/10/17.
We wish you more success in your build up to the Karate World Championships in Santa Cruz, Tenerife, at the end of October.
