October saw Wolfpack travel down to Bristol to take part in the Bristol Open 2019. We had a squad of 17 fighters competing over two days.
Light contact and points tag teams and open weights took place on the Saturday. There were definitely some battles! Adam Lough was our fighter of the day for coming away with a gold medal in his -63kg light contact and for stepping up to the adult divisions to compete in the tag teams with partner Grant McEwan and for them coming back with a bronze in their section.
On Sunday, it was point fighting day. We had most of the Wolfpack kids fighting and so, our highlight on this day was Aroush Shiek. This was due to the great improvements that she has made and we’re very proud of the way she fought.
Head Instructor Natasha Baldwin was also leading by example winning gold in her -70kg points fighting division. Other winners included: Aiden Lennan, Ollie Schofield and Maia Bisley. Congratulations everyone!
Our total medal count was:
- 8 gold
- 10 silver
- 16 bronze
This placed us 8th out of 110 clubs, a massive improvement from last year where we placed 17th. Next year our aim is to be in the top 5!
Well done to everyone who competed, we can’t wait for the next one.
