Competing in the open Kyokushin Rules knockdown tournament, Callum was on top form to win the under 42kg junior boys’ category.

The Melton club then sent an 11-strong team to Slough for the National Clicker Tournament which brought more distinction.

Huw Horton won the pee-wee six to eight years category, while clubmate Ellis Nugent finished third in the pee-wee nine to 10 years.

Ellis was also awarded a trophy for best technique in the pee wee category and joined forces with Huw, Zayda Aziz and Curtis Horton to claim third place in the pee-wee team competition.

Oliver Nugent secured second place in the over 155cm low grade boys’ category, a position matched by Callum Breward in the under 160cm high grade boys’ class.

Callum was also awarded a trophy for best technique in the junior category.

Bradley Rowlinson was third in the under 155cm low grade boys’ group, as was Remmi Aziz in the over 155cm high grade girls’ category.

Also representing Melton were Daniel Fryer, Aaron Carroll and Weronika Olesiguk.

Remmi, Zayda, Callum and Ellis also travelled to Cardiff for the Severn Challenge with Ellis winning the pee-wee clicker class, and Remmi finishing third place in the over 155cm girls’ clicker.
