VINNIE BECOMES BRITISAH CHAMPION!
BKO's 5th British champ this year. Vinnie won the vets section at The Kwon British championships today. He also got a siver in the mens under 94kg section and had a close fight 8-6 against Rhys Phillips. Well done Vin.
Michelle fought in the ladies section fighting a German that was as big as Vinnie! Michelle got round her legs and scored nicely a couple of times, but had to settle for 4th place. She then took a silver in the ladies vets. Her fighting is going from strength to strength now and her faking and timing gave all her opponents problems.
Adults class was Squad training this week and thanks to Allen, Ben and his team who came to work out. 2 hours of strategies, tactics and exercises designed to improve tournament sparring. Amazing effort from the kids who did both classes today 3 hours of sparring wore them out, but they didn't give in and carried on to the end.
Look out for next months Squad training.
Well done everyone who took part in a packed Chessington Hands down tournament today. Lots of great development shown and some things to work on to further improve our fighting.

Had a great time last night.Three hours learning triggers and footwork sparring etc with Tention. A great guy and an awesome instructor. We introduced him to a cheeky nandos and a Kebab though!
Thanks to all the adults and kids who came along and supported, worked hard and sweated . I know a few had to leave a little early and missed the photos. We will try and photoshop you in. :)
