Toshi Kazoku Judokwai members combined to win a highly impressive 10 medals at the Harlow Green Belt and Under Championships, including a haul of five golds.

Nine of the club’s youngsters made the relatively short trip from their base at Barking Abbey School to the event in mid-Essex.

After producing some fine performances, gold medals were won by Amy Branch, Rene Fulgence, James Downes, Mihails Kokins and Dennis Marks.

Dennis Voinovan, Ruby Delaney, Brusk Magdenko and Justus Smitruis all impressed and took home silver medals for their efforts.

Having already collected gold in one age category, Marks then fought in another to secure a bronze medal for Toshi Kazoku Judokwai.

“For some of these guys it was there first competition and they all did extremely well,” said coach Turan Kiani.

It was another fine success for the club, who train at the Barking Abbey School Leisure Centre every Tuesday and Thursday evening.
