Meopham Open March 2014

On Sunday 23rd March 4 squad members travelled to Meopham to compete in the Open Championships. With Sensei Sat absent due to a busy grading session at the club it was left to Fran to coach and warm up her team-mates.

Jenna was first to compete and stormed through her category with a bye first round,winning the next 2 rounds 7-1 and 3-1 before narrowly losing 7-8 in a thrilling and nail biting final securing a silver medal. Well done Jenna you fought superbly with very strong and clean techniques.

Jenna then joined her team-mate Ciara in the next category which would see Jenna fight much bigger and stronger girls. Luckily both girls were at either end of the draw and both sailed through the rounds showing their class with gutsy fighting and strong techniques. Jenna won 8-1 and 8-0 before coming up against a much bigger girl and losing 1-4 to secure a bronze medal, her second medal of the day, what a fantastic day for Jenna.

Ciara stormed all the way through to the final winning 7-0, 7-2, 2-1, and 7-1 hardly dropping a point with composure and confidence to win a well deserved gold medal. Well done Ciara your fighting was amazing with great timing and techniques.

Next onto the mat was PJ who started very well winning his first round 5-3 before narrowly losing 3-4 in the second round. PJ was very unlucky to lose out in the second round as he had been fighting well and he should be proud of his performance, well done PJ.

Last to fight was Fran who won her first fight comfortably 4-1, before coming up a strong and talented fighter in the final. This was a very close fight with Fran just losing out 1-2 to take a silver medal, well done Fran.

Sensei Sat commented "The team produced an amazing result with no preparation and with no coach!! The team are consistently performing and this bodes well for the year!" Well done everybody!!
