Success at GTUK British Championships
On Saturday 26th October several students from the North West clubs travelled to Coventry in the West Midlands for the UK Individual and Black Belt Team Championships
The day was very good for us as two of the students excelled in their respective competitions
Fraser Nicolson from Penrith won Gold medals in both sparring and patterns. He has been training since he was 8 years old and has been trying to win both for several competitions. It is a great achievement for a 12 year old.
Robbie Wells is a member of the Morecambe club, won Gold in sparring, patterns, special technique and a bronze in the team event. It was amazing to see a 17 year old jump and kick boards at a height of 2.6 metres
Both Robbie and Fraser are members of the GTUK national team and regularly attend squad training to prepare themselves for these events.
Robbie recently won a Gold medal at the UITF world championships in London as well.
Abi Wells (Robbie’s sister) won bronze in sparring and patterns.
Dan Fishwick won bronze in sparring and silver in patterns.
James Wilbye from Kirkby Stephen won bronze in sparring but was unlucky in the patterns
Well done to you all
