Sunday 29th – Watford Open

Another successful tournament for GB Fit yesterday at the Watford Open!

Apart from the Bristol Open, I would say the Watford Open is the next biggest tournament in the UK with a massive turn out of hundreds of competitors not only from the UK but from European countries too!!

We had a small team this time round of just 5 fighters consisting of ..
1. Domenic Cimini
2. Beau Concannon
3. Jack Sowersby
4. Liam Holden
5. Izzy Whitmore

Everyone fought their hearts out and gave 100%. Domenic and Beau fought extremely well for their first big tournament and both would have learned a great deal and gained great experience in the process, not just in the martial arts world, but in life in general…. with Domenic achieving 1st place, so a big well done to both of them.
Jack, Liam and Izzy really made me proud as all three of them came 1st with Liam winning both his points division and his light contact… as a coach, I couldn’t have asked for any more…

Dan Bythe, Kung Fu black sash from GB Fit talked about the experiences of 6 x World Kickboxing Champion Sharon Gill and the dedication and determination she displayed to win at the highest level.
