Jake Moore from Lytham has been crowned Karate Kata champion for the North of England.

The nine-year-old Our Lady Star of the Sea pupil trains at First Dojo Marital Arts Academy in South Shore under Sensei Jamie Edmonds.

The North of England Championships took place in Barnsley, with competitions in 60 sections in Kata and Kumite.

Jake took Kata gold in the category for eight and nine-year-old boys of third Kyu.

Proud mum Andrea said: “We are so proud of our son not only because of his achievements but also because of his commitment and dedication to his sport.”
