Moberly Stars at the Harlow Red and Yellow Championships
Five Moberly stars made the short trip to Harlow today to take part in Harlow Judo Club’s 6th mon and below Championships at Burnt Hill Academy. Another well run event with particularly impressive trophies!
Moberly had two debutants in Myeisha Dawkins and Ciaron Edwards. Ciaron enjoyed his first tournament with two hard fought victories to claim gold. Myeisha, competing in the lightest red belt category showed true fighting spirit and determination as she fought back to claim a well deserved bronze. Both showed great enthusiasm and are looking forward to their next events.
In the yellow belt section, Mariam was too much for her opponents winning five in a row to win her third gold of the year. Brother Dawood was also in good form producing a perfect harai-goshi on his way to the final were he was a little unfortunate to get caught for an ippon and claim the silver. Kyle moved up to the heavier u34k category and despite a semi final loss, was still able to produce a trade mark seio-nage to secure an excellent bronze medal.
