Pawel Kutermankiewicz recently competed at the 17th Karate World Championships in Geneva.

The event, which, alongside the Traditional Karate Children’s World Cup, saw more than 700 participants from 24 countries including Russia, United States, Brazil, Canada, Turkmenistan, Israel, Japan, Uzbekistan,Tunisia and Venezuela compete in Switzerland.

Kutermankiewicz, a memer of Traditional Karate Academy Boston, was nominated to compete in the UK squad by Kenny Taylor, the president of the United Kingdom Traditional Karate Federation.

The competition was very strong as all the teams represented the highest standards of performance, with the Bostonian reaching the individual kumite quarter-finals.

There has been more success for the club as the President of International Traditional Karate Federation awarded TKAB coach Zbigniew Godzisz with an honorary medal for his contribution to the sport.

The Traditional Karate Academy Boston have also played host to one of the most prominent European martial arts coaches, former World Champion sensei Andrzej Maciejewski.

He was in charge leading a special training seminar, as well as acting as the chief referee of the second Traditional Karate Boston Cup.

The event saw 40 children from numerous clubs from all over England - including Boston, Skegness, Nottingham, Loughborough, London and Bournemouth - compete.

There were plenty of displays of exceptional determination and spirit from those taking part.

The Boston club also produced four category winners in the shape of Adriana Peiseniece, Patryk Godzisz, Ernest Skarzynskij and Kacper Wielgosz.
