2014 Unified ITF English Open Championships

On the weekend of the 27th and 28th September, MWTA members traveled to Derby to take part in the Unified ITF English Open Championships.

The MWTA competitors ranged in age from 5 through to the adults and veterans, and from white belt through to 4th degree. All members put in great performance which for most will be the last tournament of the year.

The event was well supported and run with a nice atmosphere.

All members took part in Sparring, Patterns and also Special Technique events, and it was good experience and a great learning curve for all who competed. 

Six of the MWTA competitors came away with 2 individual golds or more – Jamaine Hemmings, Jasmine Grant, Kevin Frith, Jack Lettis, Rokas Zilionis and Jackie Holohan.

Master Wolf was also asked to put together a mens team to compete in special event against Ireland and Scotland. The English team came away with Gold medals after defeating Scotland in the semi final and Ireland in the final. The team consisted of Richard Belle (MWTA), Jamaine Hemmings (MWTA), Phil Whitlock (Whitlock Martial Arts), Jason Carsberg (De Silva TKD), Tom Raybould (MWTA) and Adam James (MWTA).

Many thanks to Master Gary Bradshaw, Mrs Elaine Bradshaw and Miss Kimberley Bradshaw for inviting the members from Master Wolf’s Academies.
