Congratulations to Our Student of the Year

The academies student of the year for 2018 is Brad Derbyshire, Brad was presented with the much coveted award at the academies presentation evening held at The Riverside in Whitworth in January by Laura Saxton from Asda who was our special guest for the evening.

Brad had a very good year competitively coming close to winning that elusive gold medal at the 2018 World Championships where he won two silvers and then following that up with an exceptional Blackbelt grade in the presence of Joe Tierney in December where Joe gave him special praise as to the quality of his work and his fantastic attitude which ultimately made him the stand out candidate. Our congratulations do not just go to Brad but to Gail and Jason who missed all the fun whilst cruising around the Caribbean.
