Kazoku-Kan fighters impress at British Schools Adaptive Championships

Ben Tyler 29th Mar, 2019

KAZOKU-KAN Judo Club in Droitwich brought home more silverware recently, with four fighters impressing at the British Schools Adaptive Championships in Sheffield.

Liam Jones was first to fight, delivering what was a judo masterclass en route to a gold medal, beating his first opponent with a leg sweep, before defeating every fighter in his pool with Ippon scores to go home as the British Schools champion for 2019.

Corey Chapman took silver in only his second major tournament, fighting well against more experienced fighters to reach the final.

Meanwhile, Sophie Kenny, a ground combat fighter, battled through to earn a bronze medal in her bouts.

However, Felicity Warburton was unfortunate in suffering a casualty on the mat, dislocating her knee and having to visit a hospital nearby, but still earned a bronze medals prior to the injury.

Rich Morrish, head of Kazoku-Kan Judo Club was impressed with the determination and effort shown by the club’s fighters, and was proud of the results in Sheffield.

“These guys work their socks off both in training and at the events that we take them to, it’s great to see them taking the tools they are given and make something for themselves at the competitions.

“I am very proud of each and every one of them – they’re a fantastic team, and a credit to the club, their parents and themselves.”

The club, who train at the Dojo inside Physique Fitness in Droitwich Spa every Friday, are always open to new members, and invite interested fighters to contact Rich personally at rich@kazoku.uk
