Crawley Low Grade Team 1st Place
Crawley dojo had two successes at the Welsh Open Knockdown Championships in Newport yesterday.
Senpai Blake Collins took his first Open Middleweight title by beating Sami Mehio of Hastings/Bexhill 4-0 in the final. Sami started strongly scoring with heavy low kicks but once Blake put pressure on his opponent he assumed control and was getting through with heavy combinations at the finish.
Minutes later Senpai Gabriel Barbu added the Open Heavyweight title with a Waza ippon with punch to also secure the fastest Knockout of 1minute 7 seconds.
The dojo had a successful weekend winning the Greg Hitchings Memorial Cup for the second time in three years.
This was followed by great results in the individual events as well with prizes in both Clicker and Kyokushin Rules. Thanks go to Senpai Blake for coaching the fighters and to Shihan Andrew Turner and Dunmow Karate Club for hosting the event.
