Many of our DSK family will know Lauren Salisbury of Uechi ryu karate, having seen her at the DSK dojo alongside her two sisters Chloe and Megan and some of her England National team mates often.
This weekend Lauren smashed her way to the finals of the youth Olympic games qualifiers and although losing in the final to Japan, secured her place on team GB alongside England's Charlotte Hope who already qualified due to her results at the Europeans earlier this year.
This is a momentous achievement with Karate being a new feature into the Olypmic arena. Lauren and Charlotte will travel to Buenos Aires, Argentina in October making history for team GB and the sport of karate, and we couldn't be prouder.
Congratulations and Best of luck from all of your friends at Docklands Shoujin Karate.
