Karate - Sarah Whittaker

Modest national medal winning Loreto Grammar School Karate Kid Sarah Whittaker believes any one can excel at the 1,000 year-old Chinese martial art.

Despite winning a brilliant brace of silver and bronze medals at the English National Q grade championships, from karate players at brown belt and below, Sarah, said: “Karate is a truly a sport for all. Anyone can do it so long as they practise and work hard.”

That's certainly been the key to her success training three times a week in two hour, evening week night sessions at Sale Dojo club and going to competitions up and down the country, winning her latest medals at the Leicester Arena in one of the country's blue ribbon events.

Sarah added: “I would really like to become a black belt before my eighteenth birthday so I will need to keep training and developing my skills, it takes balance, strength, agility and good tactics to compete at the higher levels.” She added with typical charm, “I'm not too sure about aiming for national honours, I just want to be as good as I can be and enjoy the sport.”
