Gabriel Yoong in Sixths has won two bronze medals for England in the 43rd Federation European Wadokai (FEW) Championships.

This was Gabriel’s debut at the FEW Championships, which took place from 4-6 November 2016 in Belgium, where he was awarded bronze medals for his performances in the Individual Kata and Team Kumite categories. He also represented England in the Individual Kumite category.

Kata is a performance category where competitors are judged on their sequence of movements, whereas Kumite is a sparring category.

The FEW Championships is held every year, aiming to unite people through their love of karate. 353 competitors from 15 countries participated in this year’s Championships with England coming out on top with 87 medals in total.
