Well done to all of the Genesis Martial Arts students who took part in the GB Grand Slam point tournament that was held this weekend.
The GB Grand Slam is a new concept tournament that although it has categories for advanced fighters, it is aimed at catering for the novice fighters with minimal experience and giving them the opportunity to participate with fighters of their level in a fair, controlled environment. Genesis coaches were very impressed with the heart and determination of our fighters who dug deep when needed and exceeded our expectations.
For many it was their very first tournament but despite this they managed to produce very good results.
GB Grand Slam Results
Gold: Roma Sethi
Silver: Mika Turner, Mollie Westfield, Clive Cheshire, Danny Farley,
Zain Ahzar, James McDermott, Jet Westwood
Bronze: Monty Fox, Oliver Kilbourne
Please let us not forget the other brave warriors who faced their fears and stepped onto the arena and gave it their best on the day.
Maxwell Heavens, Joel Cheshire, Joe Bayliss and Raj Chiripal all fought well but just fell short of glory. We look forward to seeing many more of you in attendance at our next competitive outing.
