It has been another year to remember for the London Black Belt Academy (LBBA).

Under the guidance of instructor Master Kieran Mackey, the Newham-based club have gone on to achieve success at several events.

LBBA competed at the UK Open Championship at Cardiff in April and held their own before hosting their own event in June at the Newham Sports Centre.

Next up was a trip to Cambridge to take part in the British Championship in July before LBBA rounded off 2017 with success at the Irish International Open.

Master Mackey said: “I’m very happy with how this year has gone and everyone at the club has done really well. We have people from all over involved and so many different nationalities and we’re just a big family.

“We travel all over England together and the world now too, so it’s great and I’m really pleased.

“We have people aged from five up to 50 at the club and it is just fantastic to see them all progressing.

“We’ve done four main tournaments this year and I’ve been really proud of the way they’ve performed at each of them.”
