Y Prentis are pleased to continue to support community sports programmes and clubs. We have recently supported Kubotan Karate Kai in Pontardulais, Swansea in their efforts to raise funding through a sponsor ‘Kickathon’.
The kickathon involved members of the club achieving no fewer than 10,000 kicks in less than one hour. Their Instructor, Sensei Jason Hayward, a former Welsh and British Champion himself, stated‘We are grateful to all those who contribute to our fund raising efforts. Fundraising is the lifeblood of any club. It enables us to purchase new equipment, which enhances our training programme which in turn maintains our success as a club.’
Kubotan Karate has enjoyed and celebrated success in various tournaments which include representing Wales at the annual European Wado Kai Championships. At the 2016 European Championships in Switzerland one of their instructors Lauren Hayward secured two Bronze medals both in u21’s and in the senior category which the club are extremely proud of.
Kubotan Karate Kai was formed in January 2009 and moved to its full time premises in 2011 and boasts one of the best and most successful Dojo in Wales. Y Prentis is proud to support sports clubs such as Kubotan Karate Kai in their continued success as a club.
