Following on from our news earlier in the year that we were to sponsor Joel Eccleston in his bid to reach the Tokyo Olympics, (http://www.yipiyap.co.uk/yipiyap-sponsors-karate-kid-joel/) it’s fantastic to announce that Joel has won gold at the European Karate Kata Championships for the second year in a row this month! We are delighted that all Joel’s hard work and dedication has been rewarded.
Make sure you take a look at our twitter feed to keep up to date on what Joel has been up to.
Our tutors have been participating in our Charity Challenge to raise money to support Joel’s dream of being in the next Olympics. From cake sales and hiking up mountains to taking up veganism – our tutors have been so creative in their charity ideas. We have been blown away by their efforts and we have so far raised over £250 – which yipiyap has matched to support Joel’s club membership and training fees.
