Sport Karate Description

'On the back' of Sport Karate

Vic Charles became involved in karate in 1973.
During the following years he spent his time building up a repertoire of styles and a list of sporting achievements.
In only his first year of karate he became the U.K.K.W.
Junior Individual Champion and was a member of the winning National Team. The following year he won the Coventry Open and the B.K.C.C. Junior Heavyweight Championship.
1975 saw his explosion to the senior ranks; He won the then prestigious B.K.C.C. Brittania Cup, the S.E. Open, Wado-Ryu Championship, and the U.K.K.W. National Championship.
Unfortunately in 1976 Vic was unable to compete due to a broken leg, but returned to Championship winning form the following year.
In 1978 he became the All-Styles, Open and Heavyweight Champion in just one evening of competition; A first in the history of English karate. The Openweight title was successfully defended by Vic in 1979 and 1980.
The culmination of Vic's efforts came in 1981, when he became the first karate athlete in England to win the European All-Styles Open Championship, and went on later to win the World Games Open-Weight Karate Championship.
By 1982 Vic had gained more National and International sporting karate titles than anyone else, qualifying him for entry into the Guiness Book of Records. In the same year he also received the Commonwealth Sports Award.
Vic's achievements in sporting karate meant he was more than an adequate selection for the televised "Superteams" and "Superstars" competitions.
Competing for the first time in 1982, he was the individual Welsh heat winner. This year he was runner up in the individual heat, a member of the "fighters" team which was just beaten into second place, and established himself as the British Swimming Superstars Record Holder.

We can send your item(s) in the following ways:
Courier Tracked - Order before 1pm, we can pack and post the same day to be with you the next working day, this is not a weekend service. It is fully tracked and we will send you the tracking number when we process your order.
Evri - In our experience an extremely slow service, we cannot guarantee it will arrive. It isn't an option on the website for good reason, so if you want this pitiful service and your parcel thrown into a random hedge near your house, if you're lucky, just to save about £2 then simply call us on 0117 942 5832 and we can process your order over the phone. 
Fedex Worldwide - For anywhere outside the UK, we can post the same day but delivery times are dependent on the destination. Approximate delivery times are as follows:
