Well done to all our students who competed at the GTI British Open. Our squad came home with nine medals – 3 gold, 1 silver and 5 bronze – and a whole load of valuable experience; Lulu Oram-Tooley – bronze in patterns, Dimitri Perricos – bronze in sparring, Oliver Contreras – bronze in patterns, bronze in sparring, Lisa Houghton – bronze in patterns, silver in sparring, Will Bryan – gold in sparring, Kenzie Power – gold in sparring, Will Oxley – gold in sparring. There were also strong performances from Will Houghton, Sophie Raine, Nicole Oxley and Tyla Nawrattel. Special mention to Sophie for her courage and skill in sparring in a large category against bigger opponents. Big respect to Mr Houghton who was competing as a black belt for the first time.
