Great day on the mat

Summer Fair

Once again we made our annual appearance at the school summer fair. With ALL displays being programmed indoors this year, we opted for a smaller mat and a reduced number of players compared to previous years.

A brilliant, slightly ad libbed demo was provided by Kev Jones, Chloe Lymer, Maya and Mieszko Polak and Amy Roberts.

Chloe, Maya and Amy also demonstrated some of the self defence movements from Goshin-Jitsu, with Tony as uke.

We’d also like to say thank you to current and previous club members who watched, and helped to put down and put away mats – Toby Winfield, Ben Lymer and Sophie Rogerson.

Kent International

Michael Churcher was our sole representative at this years’ Kent International.

Making his debut at his new weight of -73kg (and only by a few grams…), Michael showed that all his recent hard work has been paying off, returning with a bronze medal.
