Welsh Open Championships 2018

Yet more excellent results for Team JSTKD!  Our line-up comprised Alex Munn, Alisha Roberts, Jessica Doogue, Jake Niblett, Menna and Harri Burmingham, Xantia, Maximus and Zander Hobrough, Dylan Howe and Darcy Griffin.

Harri kept up his fantastic run of golds by scooping the top spot in the Boys Black Belt sparring and Alex yet again came home with a medal, with his all-round skills earning him the silver in the Boys Blue Belt sparring and Xantia made a storming debut as a Black Belt (you may remember that she only got it few weeks ago) reaching the final and also clinching the silver.

As usual, our other team members did a brilliant job and made sure they gave their opponents a hard time – as one parent said “In my view, everyone who gets out there on the mats deserves a medal!”  If you’ve not been to a tournament don’t forget that you can come along either as a competitor or a spectator – or maybe as a spectator who turns into a competitor next time around of course!  There’s a fanastic team spirit not just from those taking part on behalf of JSTKD but from their parents too so you can be assured of a friendly welcome 🙂

Many congratulations to our medal winners and to all our Team JSTKD members
