We went to Southampton for the southern area  Grans slam  on Sunday.

Taking a team of lower grades and some who want mat time, the Grand slam is a good local tournament to gain experience and get a feel for competition fighting.

As it was a bank holiday weekend the turnout was low this time, but still there were plenty of good opponents to compete against.

 

Belle and jazmine ended up in the final again with Belle winning this one with her round kick.
Jake showed great composure and good blitzing as he fought through to a winners place.
Oliver had a tough fight his first time out, but  stayed the course and scored a lovely Blitz on his opponent.

Callum also showed great spirit and carachter. and hard punching.

Dan had a bit of trouble in his first section, but came good in teh second with a 1st and 2nd place.

Adults saw Andy H and Finn fighting for the first time in Competition. They ended up in the final together and Andy took the title over Finn this time.

Ben also got to the final after beating team mate Andy G in the semis. Ben Fought well against his opponet and scored with a great counter hook kick, but  he let the fight get away at the end and had to settle for silver.

Rory also won his category well, developing his pulling strategy on his opponent.
