Kokusai Karate Kai youngster Adam Richards added another gold to his ever-expanding medal haul last week with a stunning win at the Coupe Internationale de Kayl Karate Championships in Luxembourg.

Richards, 11, along with another four Kokusai athletes, made the trip to take on athletes from all over the world.

Competing in the Kata U12 event, Richards, the youngest member of the Kokusai squad, breezed through his opening round with an emphatic 5-0 win over England’s Rhys Grant.

The Clydebank youngster then saw off home favourite Myka Paniel with another impressive 5-0 in the second round before booking his spot in the final with a 4-1 win over Belgium’s Mohamed Aich.

It proved to be a much tougher final for Richards as he battled to a tight 3-2 win against Kawin Sebastian Becker from Germany for the gold.

With success already at the Irish International Open in September and at the Scottish International Open, the gold in Luxembourg was Richard’s fifth of the year from just six competitions entered.

The competition in Luxembourg was also the first overseas event for Kokusai junior members Alexander Bainbridge, 12, and Lewis McFadyen, 14, who both competed in the Kumite U14 category.

It wasn’t to be for Bainbridge who fell to a narrow 6-4 loss to France’s Enzo Mouchailo in the first round clash.

McFadyen faced Abimanyu Nathaniel in round one before coming close to scooping a bronze in the Repechage, succumbing to home favourite Davies Alexandre 7-0.

Kokusai also travelled with two senior members, Adam Jess and Ronan Flynn.

Jess fell to a 4-1 loss to Matteo Buisson in the second round while Flynn battled well in the senior Kumite event to clinch a well-deserved bronze. 

A club spokesperson said: “Competing on an international platform was an invaluable experience for the squad who continue to build their progress and skill for future competitions.”

Next up, members of Kokusai will compete at the final Scottish Grand Prix event of the year this weekend before rounding off their season at the Scottish Senior Championships at the end of the month.
