Another great day for the club. This is the third tournament the new squad of fighters have gone to over the last 6 months and they are all starting to find out what it takes to become a great champion.
A full list of junior fighters and all the medal winners below. I was refereeing all day so I did not get to see everyone fight!
A big thank you to Jory, Lorraine and Jas for preparing the fighters and looking after them on the day. It was very difficult as we had fighters on 5 out of the 6 areas being used.
It was great to see all the fighters, Instructors & most of the parents in their new Black Sun T-Shirts. A lot of the other club instructors commented on how successful the club was, just by all the t-shirts that were shouting for our fighters.
It was also great to see so many parents make the trip up to Barnsley to support their children! Without them fully on board to what we are trying to achieve with the fighters, we would struggle to move forward.
