A big congratulations to the JFAUK team who travelled to the Matsuura International Cup in Greece last weekend. Growing year on year, this regular event on the WJF international circuit drew competitors from the UK, Greece, Bulgaria, Italy, Syria, Macedonia, and a large team from Serbia.
JFAUK achieved Gold medals from Alex Charalambous, Sacha McClean and Karl Summerbell whilst silver medals went to Ross Elliot, Fionn Rowan, Lucian Buleandra and Bronzes went to Jonathan Coe, and Andreas Kouyialis – who unfortunately had to withdraw in the semi-final due to injury. A valiant performance was also held by Dave Dalby-Webb, however there was no medal achieved during his international debut.
In addition to the tournament an international training camp was led by JFAUK President & Chairman of the WJF Referee committee, Sampson Sampson (8th Dan) and Chairman of the WJF Technical Committee Alfredo Vismara (9th Dan).
All in all the event was a great success with plenty of medals and experienced gained by the team.
