This was the first time we've entered this competition.
The standard was very high with over 16 different associations taking part and 750 students competing.
Our 10 students competing were:
Michael Barford, Dave Cogan, Isaac Manning, Paul Roffey, Alice Roffey, Jodie Roffey, Jackie Fletcher, Adam Rooze, Gabriel Ion, Alex Ion
Results: Paul Bronze men's yellow belt heavyweight sparring. Jackie Silver women's green belt sparring, Jodie Gold women's green belt sparring, Gabriel Gold in boys blue belt sparring,
Gabriel also picked up another Gold boys in blue belt team sparring.
Not a bad days work. Well done to all 10 B/S & Epping students who competed on the day.
The first medal of the day went to Paul Roffey. Paul won through his first 2 rounds to win a very deserved bronze. Jackie and Jodie played off in the final of the women's green belt division with Jodie just ahead to grab the Gold. Both Paul, Jodie and daughter Alice were competing for the very first time.
Gabriel finished off a great day with double gold. The first in team event and the 2nd in Blue belt heavyweight boys. Gabriel won his semi final 3-2 in a close fought match and followed that up with a 10-0 win in the final.
Brother Alex at just 7 years old won his first fight 6-0 and but for some curious umpiring would have also been amongst the medals.
Our next competition will be the British Championships on 24th November.
