On Saturday, the Barking Abbey-based club took eight youngsters to the University of East London for the orange belt and below development event.

All eight members made it onto the podium, with golds for Fobanyi Abidekun, Matt Machoavas and Harry Machoavas .

Silver medals were won by Smilte Smitruis, Daniil Mykytyn, Brusk Demirci and Mihails Kokins and there was a bronze medal for Rene Fulgence.

The following day, two of the clubs senior members competed at the Kyu Grade Cup, which was held in Dartford.

It proved to be a successful day for TKJ with both Yaroslavl Mykytyn and Veaceslav Voinovan winning gold medals.

“As a club we couldn’t have asked for a better start to 2018 and I’m looking forward to a busy and hopeful successful year,” said coach Turan Kiani.
