Kwon British open

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.
