Crawley student performed extremely well at the SENI, O2 Arena this weekend with Dawid Ozga taking 1st place in the West Europe Cup at middleweight and Kobe Spinney taking 1st place in the Juniors -150cm English Invitational.
The dojo also had Kirsten Galatius Smith get 3rd in the Women’s +60kg, Robert Salvi 3rd in the Junior +150cm and Pee Wee Ashley Black achieving 3rd place although fighting above his age category also in the -150cm.
All the juniors fought very well with Ame Sorge, Bethany Salvi, Charlie Denton and Denis Sorokins all taking part.
In the full contact Dawid dominated his category winning all 3 fights by waza ari scoring with body punches. Kirsten had 3 tough scraps, all going the distance.
Blake Collins also fought well at middleweight and was very unlucky to not get an outright victory in his first match and then lost to a very experienced dutch fighter. He missed out on 3rd place only due to weight difference.
A great day was had by all at the interclass at our dojo. Over sixty participants took part in points fighting for U18 categories from Loughborough, Westhill, Dunmow, Saffron Walden, Verwood, Crystal Palace and Crawley clubs.
Many thanks to everyone who helped and officiated. Special thanks to Paul Beach and his wife who donated the BBQ food and cooked it all.
