Karate Kid Sam Higgs wins Somerset competition at Crispin Community Centre
Sam Higgs came out on top at the Karate Kid competition, held at the Crispin Community Centre in Street recently.
Sixteen Karate Kids from throughout Somerset took part in the event but ten-year-old Higgs, who has been training at Strode Swimming Pool for three years, fought his way through for victory.
He had to win four rounds to reach the final, where he was up against an opponent three years older and with a much higher belt.
However, Higgs was not discouraged and rose to the occasion, fighting cleverly to pick up enough points for victory.
