JKS Kyu Grade Championship Results – WHAT A DAY!

We are delighted to report that once again our Red Tiger Squad had a very successful day on the mats.

Our team travelled down to Nottingham for the JKS Kyu Grade Championships on Fathers Day 18th June and we had a belting day. The students were on top form and well up for showing off what they have been doing on Monday nights. They were a pleasure to watch.

The most pleasing thing for us as coaches is that every single one of you tries your hardest, goes out there with the attitude to win or learn and don’t complain if the result doesn’t go your way. Your behavior and sportsmanship is always excellent and we are proud of you all.

Congratulations to the following students who were brave enough to put themselves on the mats, you have all gained some great experience:

Izzy pocket-rocket Baron, Sonny Millington, Gina Farrance, Ellis Pindoria-Stott, Lola Fellone, Holly Dale, Kevin Longthorne, Jaime Pratley, Ella Rylance, Su Matthews, Andy Matanle and Ron Matthews.

Our team came away with a fantastic haul of 19 medals:

Gina Farrance won a bronze medal in individual kumite and a gold medal in individual kata

Izzy Baron won a bronze medal in individual kata and a silver medal in kickmaster

Sonny Millington won a bronze medal in individual kickmaster

Kevin Longthorne won a bronze medal in individual kata, a bronze medal in individual kumite and silver medal in individual kickmaster

Holly Dale won a silver medal in individual kata and a silver medal in individual kumite

Jaime Pratley won a gold medal in individual kumite and a silver medal in individual kata

Su Matthews won a gold medal in individual kata and a bronze medal in individual kumite

Ron Matthews won a silver medal in individual kumite

Andy Matanle won a gold medal in individual kumite

Ellis Pindoria-Stott was on fire! Hands up for the TRIPLE CHAMP! Gold in individual kata, gold in individual kumite and gold in individual kickmaster.

 

As always, huge thanks to the parents who gave up their fathers day to allow their kids to enter this event. Big thanks to Mike Baron Sensei and Grace Baron for coaching and supporting our team all day. Your continuous support and advice is much appreciated by everyone.

We’ll have to wait and see if we managed to top the medal table at another JKS competition, but one thing is for sure, we are having a great year, keep up the fab work guys!

WELL DONE!!!!!
