Craig takes big step towards his black belt

Craig Jones gained twenty points towards his 1st Dan at a grading in Horsham on Sunday.

Craig came back from a loss in his first fight, when he was held down, to score two ippon wins in his next two contests.

This takes Craig’s points score to forty, nearly half way to his black belt.

Well done Craig – keep going!

Congratulations to our latest new grades!

We are delighted to confirm the following new grades:

2nd mon

  • Samuel Allen

7th mon (orange belt)

  • Alex Lane
  • Jeremy Allen

As we are now have several mid grade players, we will be encouraging players to move up to later sessions – we wil speak to players individually over the next few weeks.

This will enable us to focus our coaching more appropriately.
