MIKE CARR – KARATE 1 PREMIER LEAGUE
I am a karate athlete in England and looking for funding for the 2015 season, I am competing in something called Karate 1 – Premier League which a series of tournaments scattered across the world. My tournament placing then gets me a number of points which is then tallied into the league. Karate 1 consists of the worlds best karate competitors competing against each other. in 2014 I was only able to attend two out of eight of the tournaments due to funding and finished 111th in the league out of 286. So with funding I am confident that I would be able to break into the top 20-30 best in the world. I am also the 6th highest ranking Englishman in the all time WKF karate rankings. Good results in these could take me higher next year.
