Seth Blade won a gold medal in the Male All Belts 11 year old category, while Mitchell Wickham won silver in the 15 year old division and first timer Daniel Irving lost his contest but lasted the full three minute round without being submitted.

Blade won his two heats convincingly and Wickham won his first heat on points but struggled to overcome a stalling opponent who scored some early points in the second.

‘‘Both Seth and Mitchell have really good speed and strength,’’ said instructor Matt Wickham.

‘‘They move really well.

‘‘Daniel’s opponent submitted all his other match-ups so Daniel did really well in his first competitive fight.’’
