The first GB Point Fight Grand Slam, was held in Crawley on Sunday 17th June, organised by GB Coach Jacey Cashman, in memory of his father Tony Cashman.
It was an incredibly well organised and well run event, starting on time and running to schedule.
There were some excellent performances on the day, Head Coach, Andy Cleeves said ‘Wolfman Sean McDonald and Katie Williams’s performances really stood out, for their excellent use of technique and listening to instruction’.
In the pee wee 9 and under categories, Epic certainly shone, winning 3 out of 4 of the golds on offer. Harvey Pollard won the -24kg category, with some really hard fought performances and Sean McDonald won both the -32kg and +32kg categories. Teia Doyle and Ewan Thain also did very well in the pee wee sections.
A special mention also goes to Evie Jones, who made the big leap up from Interclub competitions to her first National competition, where she won a well deserved silver medal in the rookie girls, -46kg category.
There were also golds for Alex Fellender-Evans, YC -28kg, Ellie Doyle, OC -42kg and Matt Roberts, men’s +89kg and 10 other podium finishes.
This was a great competition to support and be a part of from the beginning, the next GB Grandslam will be on Sunday 9 June 2019.
The annual Epic Summer Camp was spent at Kiln Park Holiday Park, Tenby from 8-10 June 2018.
For the 2nd year running, the weather was fantastic and really added to the feeling of being on holiday.
It was a great weekend of training, socialising and getting to know everyone at this amazing club, a bit better.
The training ranged from self-defence, 5 & 10K runs, the Spartan Challenge, Fight Clinic, and the obligatory Dad dancing in the clubhouse, just to name a few.
The weekend was topped off by a great beach workout, in the sea, and beach yoga from instructor Sarah West, to stretch out those aching bodies.
All in all, a great weekend, roll on Summer Camp 2019!
