I am very proud to announce that our grandson aged 9 at only his second ever ‘Military Martial Arts Tournament’ came away with two trophies.
He took first place in the semi-continuous; and then just for good measure he earned a second place trophy in his next fight.
I know his father who instructs these kids was elated at the huge achievements of every one of his students; as indeed were we all!
The levels of hard work and dedication that these youngsters put into their training helped ensure that they did themselves; their club and their families; very proud!

“Nice one lads and well done son…that’s a great little team you have trained there!”

That’s wonderful, Bob. I’m sure he inherited it from you.
That’s kind Bill!
My son started this club from scratch and his own children as well as kids from whose backgrounds bullying was an issue; have all thrived under his guidance and encouragement!
I really love it when inter club tournaments such as this one help them regain their confidence!
And I really appreciated your kind comment my friend.
