A Blackpool Karate kid has gained national glory at the age of eight and his growing reputation has spread to the Far East.

Archie Brown from Sawley Avenue, South Shore, Blackpool represented GB in the JKF Goju Kai Karate championships in Japan. The Roseacre School pupil, who trains at First Dojo at Squires Gate, only took up karate in May 2012 and began competing successfully around the country 12 months later.
