Caroline Smith talks about becoming UK NAS Champion of Champions

Caroline is the wife of R16 Regional sensei, Jason Smith. She has been a loyal GKR karateka and dedicated competitor and martial artist since 2002. She is probably the most successful female tournament competitor in GKR's history, and although World Cup gold has thus far eluded her, she has won every other title numerous times.

So often, the men get all the glory and recognition, but having won the NAS Champon of Champions in the UK, which has a far larger pool of potential competitors than the Australian competition, I thought that it was high time that this inspirational competitor and dear friend finally got the recognition that she so richly deserves.
