On the 29th April 2018, I went all the way up to Thirsk (North Yorkshire) for the England Youth Kata A Squad selections. All the Youth Squad members were there to defend their chance to be selected.
After one hour and thirty minutes of training, we had a snack before the selection process started. This process is four hours of demonstrations, individual and team.
The coaches then gave the names of the selected….. Yes! I am selected for the A Squad!
Now I will be able to represent England in International Competitions.
My next step is Berlin at the end of September.
