Well done to all of our students who participated in the tournament on the weekend. We had some fantastic results with Saffron Woods taking out second place in the patterns division and Jamie Stott also taking second place in her age group...... well done girls!
Congratulation to Keeley Souris on winning second place after some hard fought bouts in sparring against women twice her age!
Well done Bodie Kirkham and Daniel Moland in your bouts. You both had tough fights and it always hard when changing styles but you fought well and I hope we see you re-enter in three months time.
Special mention to James Fairclough on an amazing performance in sparring. We can definately see huge potential in not only your fighting career but also becoming an outstanding blackbelt and instructor one day.
Unfortunatly Chris Capes had a tough fight which had to be stopped due to excessive contact. It is all too common when two tough fighters meet. Chris has been with me for many years and now as he enters into young adulthood the temptation towards full contact bouts is growing. But I know Chris will learn from his bout and return well prepared for next time.
Well done to Adam Whyatt and Josh Moore for running a fantastic tournament, we have heard nothing but good comments about how well run the event was. We look forward to the next one!
