No Golds at the Wako Nationals in Nottingham

A small number of our fighters attended the above event held over the second weekend in February at the Harvey Hadden Sports Centre in Nottingham.


Saturday saw all our students compete in Light Contact, with the exception of James Casey who feel ill whilst travelling down. Both Mia Woodward and Ethan Casey came the closest to our fighters winning Gold over the weekend narrowly losing out in their respective light contact finals, Brad Derbyshire and Ava Casey also claimed bronze in their categories.


On Sunday it was points and a day for the Navaratnam’s with Eromi and Romeo both winning bronze medals.  The fact that we came away with no Gold’s highlights just how tough a test this tournament continues to be, many of the divisions were heavily populated which resulted in several of our students having to navigate through a few rounds before reaching a semi-final.  Our congratulations go to all who took part in what was our first tournament of 2022 and in getting in some important mat time.
