Mia Hawkins took her first full contact crown stopping her first opponent with jodan mawashi geri and then in the final scoring with another jodan mawashi before giving ippon with a punch to the body.

Elvin Vaskys won his first bout by ippon to the body and then in a thrilling see-saw final, he got ahead with a jodan mawashi to the head but his opponent Louis Sorge came back strongly scoring to waza ari with body punches.
