KAZOKU-Kan Judo Club have enjoyed a successful past couple of weekends, following a clean sweep of medals for their fighters.
Four players from the club participated in the Midland Area closed competition at Erdington Academy on February 10, and came away with a number of medals to show for their efforts.
Up first in the 38kg category was James Worsfold, who, despite an unlucky throw from his opponents, still managed to walk away with a bronze medal around his neck.
Joshua Warburton followed him, fighting in the 45kg range, where he performed some of his best judo of his budding career.
He came away with bronze, joined in tow by his sister Felicity Warburton – who also claimed bronze when putting up strong efforts against two experienced fighters in the 55kg category.
Last up at the event was Liam Jones, who fought in the 55 kilos esquires category and looked vicious from the start, claiming a silver medal.
Last Sunday, the club travelled to the Samurai Green and Under Championship at the Samurai Judo Club in Kidderminster.
Worsfold returned home with another bronze, again in the 38kg event, with some skilled judo.
Meanwhile, Corey Chapman also claimed a bronze, having been pitted against much larger boys in his category but managing to dig in and perform to an excellent standard.
Kazoku-Kan Judo Club head coach Rich Morrish was enthralled by the efforts of his fighters at the two events.
“For the first competitions of 2019, these kids have managed to shrug off any rust from pre-Christmas and get out there and show what they are made of.
“What a fantastic start to the year for them all, I’m very proud to teach them each and every week.”
The club train every Friday at Physique Fitness on the Berry Hill Industrial Estate in Droitwich Spa, with sessions taking place from 6.30pm until 8.30pm.
