11 combatants and 7 supporters had a superb day at the GTUL Championships winning a total of 11 medals in a busy and productive day.
Joseph Miller took a superb gold in the pee wee special techniques with twin brother Henry coming 2nd (Henry also came 4th in the sparring after winning 3 fights!) Oscar Glaysher won silver for sparring and patterns in the Dragon white to green belts whilst Ali Gowing took a silver for patterns and a bronze for sparring in the higher grade dragons.
James Gowing won bronze in the pee wee green tag-blue tag sparring. Bronwen Back won a superb gold in the junior girls patterns and then a bronze in the sparring. Christian Everett took a great bronze in his 1st adult black belt sparring competition whilst Clinton Gillett took gold for patterns and silver for sparring the veteran mens 3rd degree plus category.
The club is immensely proud of Jonty Gillett, Kelsie Dyer and Gavin White who competed bravely but did not quite reach the podium. Special mention has to go to Megan Gowing who came along to support the club and was asked to step in as a welfare officer due to her qualifications, she worked all day to support the younger students really well.
Parents supported with great enthusiasm and made the day very special. Many thanks to all and looking forward to the next grading on Thursday 15th December at 6.30pm.
