Martial arts: Chesterfield club celebrate national honours


Mind Body Spirit had one competitor at the National Championships in Walsall this year.

Dylan Rayat was entered in the Random Attack, Continuous Fighting and Weapon Kata categories.

In the Continuous Fighting Dylan won a bronze medal and gold in the Weapons Kata, meaning Chesterfield’s Mind Body Spirit has its first British Champion in this event.

Sensei Mike said: “Dylan has worked extremely hard and put in lots of hours training at our squad training class. His dedication and commitment are a great example to all the other students at the academy and hopefully this will be a source of inspiration for more of our students to compete at this level.”
