Newham’s Shoujin Karate Kai finished the 2016 competition season in style at the Meopham Open in Kent.
The team of 16 concluded the year by bringing home a combined total of six gold, five silver and eight bronze medals in the kata and kumite disciplines.
Among the gold medalists were Danielius Pavilonis, who recently returned from a broken wrist, and Jorunas Gorelcenka, taking gold in all three categories, along with his brother Mantas Gorelcenka and cousin Martyna Griskeviciute.
Head coach Tony Solley said: “This has been a solid performance year from our team with some emerging talent at all levels. We are looking forward to 2017 and continuing to strive to be the best we can be.”
