Ame has competed in Kyokushin Karate at an international level, starting the sport when he was 4 years old at Sandgate Primary School. Initially, he took it up as a hobby (whilst waiting to be picked up from school!), but quickly fell in love with the sport. Ame is very excited to be a Shepway Sports Trust ambassador and has helped extensively with holiday camps, as well as being a Learn, Assist and Earn volunteer. He has fought at the Leas Cliff Hall and taken part in many displays at local primary schools and local towns.
