Toshi Kazoku Judokwai members took home seven medals from the British Schools’ Championships qualifiers, including two golds.

The Barking Abbey-based club had eight members in action at the event at UEL SportsDock, with seven of those claiming medals.

Gold medals were won by Ruby Delaney and Harry Machovas after a string of fine displays throughout.

Rene Fulgence, Justus Smitruis and George Branch all went home with silver medals to show for their efforts.

Kelian Fulgence and Emily Verrier were also among the medals as they each collected a bronze.

Matt Machovas performed well at the qualifying event, but was sadly unable to come away with a medal.

TKJ coach Turan Kiani said: “It’s a great result for this fast growing club.

“With one more qualifying event to go there is a great chance that we will be taking a large team to the finals in March – I’m so proud of them all.”
