    THERE’S no doubting 2017 is going to be a big hit for karate brothers Luan, Liam and Luca Veras. 

    After a short winter break, the siblings, who regularly compete in karate, judo, jiu-jitsu and mixed martial arts, are back in their dojo training hard as they look to add more medals to their bulging trophy cabinet. Their father Sensei Raphael Veras said: “The boys are very excited about the coming year and it promises to be a busy one. Among the competitions… are the British Open and the French Karate Champion­ships, while they’ll also be competing in America for the first time when they take part in the US Open in Las Vegas.”
