Jasper & Paul Simmons

Nine year-old Jasper Simmons, who trains in Uckfield with FSK (Frontier Schools of Karate and Kickboxing) won a brilliant bronze medal at the recent English Karate Federation Championships in Leicester.

Competing in his first national championships, Jasper claimed bronze in the individual under-10s open weight section, winning through four rounds, before being beaten by the eventual winner in the semi-finals.

Jasper is coached by his father Paul Simmons, and both of them came in to talk with David Eggleston on last weekend’s Saturday Sport programme.
