Sensei Richard Naylor-Jones, Alex Lockett and Nick Nelson were interviewed by Glenn Speller on BCC Essex Sport on Wednesday 30 January 2019.
Last weekend following a two day England Selection process Chelmsford had five selected to the Karate Union of Great Britian England Squad for 2019 : Emma Burke, Mia Hillsden, Alex Lockett, Nick Nelson and Jack Somers. For Alex Lockett and Nick Nelson this was the first time they have been for selection and so to be selected was fantastic .
Sensei Richard received a call and later that day the trio were in the BBC Essex studios. During the interview Glenn Speller talked to Alex and Nick about the selection process and what it meant to them to gain selection. Having previously interviewed Mia Hillsden when she became World Champion, Glenn talked to Alex about how training alongside her each week has inspired him in his bid to reach the top level. He also asked Sensei Richard about the preparation, hard work and dedication they needed to reach this level.
