The club won a host of bronze medals, including Janet Farrell in the veterans’ kumite and Abigail Hyde in the juniors’ kumite,

Shaun Cassidy, Chris Walsh and Sharon Ingle also achieved bronze medals in the mixed team kumite.

Rounding out the bronze medals for the club was Andrew Patton, who achieved third in the brown belt kumite.

Eight-year-old Lorenzo Walsh did extremely well in his first competition. But he narrowly missed out being in the medals.

However, his confidence has been boosted and he is looking forward to having another go at competing.

Ten-year-old Mia Tyler did an excellent job helping on the day. Mia supported the club by keeping tally of how everyone was doing and providing water and snacks.
