A teenage karate fighter who trains in Silsden won a bronze medal at a European event. Brandon Carr, 18, claimed bronze for England at the Junior European Karate Championships, held in Aalborg, Denmark, Brandon and his family made the decision for him to move to Silsden to train with his coach Paul Newby, at NCAA and relocate to Craven College aged 16 and, as a result, his hard work has paid off. Newby is committed to accommodate athletes from all over the UK/world who want to train at the highest level by opening the Combat Crib, giving them somewhere to stay while they train at NCAA in Silsden.

Newby said: “This lad is now a European bronze medallist at such a young age, imagine what he can accomplish. As his coach, I’m so proud of what he’s achieved especially with the Olympics in 2020, he is a prospect for the future.”
