Wow! What a result. Our brave and dedicated competition team did a fantastic job at the National Championships this year. Absolutely stunning result with medals won in most categories. All of the Hando entrants to the competition did brilliantly, fighting and performing to the best of their ability, and supporting their fellow club members. A huge thank you to the parents who worked hard to bring the kids along to competition training sessions, and of course to all of the performers who gave their all in both training and competing. A special mention to Jason Plume who won his first medal in Random Attacks - Jason returned to Ju Jitsu last year, after a 10 years hiatus - a great achievement. Kaitlyn Bell and RM - two of our youngest competitors deserve a special mention for the hard work they put into their training, which paid off with Gold for both.

Congratulations to all who took part - we are so very proud of your achievements.

4 medals at the Jikishin 2012 National Championships

David Mizon - Gold Medal Winner - Sparring 2012David Mizon won his first senior Sparring Gold Medal with a fine performance in the competition. Unfortunately, in the first round in the finals, he fractured the radius bone in his arm, but battled on in the second round with the broken arm to secure the gold medal spot. Due to the injury, Dave was unable to compete in the senior Heavyweight Groundfighting category, and unable to defend his title. We look forward to Dave competing and gaining both National titles next year, to match his excellent performance as a junior competitor.

Maciet Fracowiack - Bronze Winner Sparring 2012


Maciet Frackowiak was unlucky to lose his bout against the eventual the gold medal winner, and fought bravely and consistently well, to be knocked out by a split decision. Congratulations on a Bronze Medal and a great debut performance.




Juniors Aoife Burn and Mikey Charlton both performed superbly to win Bronze Medals in the sparring category keeping to the tradition of great fighting skills displayed by all Hando competitors.

3 British Champions in Groundfighting - 2005

Hando Ju Jitsu Clubs - Chris Richardson & Will Murley Gold Medal Winners - GroundfightingHarlow's Will Murley and Chris Richardson, and Junior Competitor Michael Franklin, from our Ongar Club, won Gold Medals in the combined Jikishin Ju Jitsu and British Ju Jitsu Championships in Southend. Both competitors won all of their bouts by submission, an unusual feat. Will (20), Chris (23) and Michael (16) all won Gold medals in their respective weight categories.

All of the guys have been training and working on their Groundwork skills for quite some time now, and it is very gratifying to see them reach the pinnacle of success in the UKMAGB Championships. There were over 500 attendees and competitors on the day, and the standard is rising every year, so it is a great achievement on the part of the boys.

Sarah-Jayne Hunt - Silver Medal Jikishin Nationals 2005A Silver Medal was gained by Sarah Jayne Hunt (15), who put up a great performance in the Final, to be crowned Runner Up in the Female Junior Sparring category. Sarah-Jayne has recently joined the Harlow, Essex club and competed for the first time in the British Championships. Far from being nervous, Sarah went into each of her fights with a great attitude and a will to win. She has a great future and the potential to go further in competition in the years to come.
