Saci triumphed in both the boys’ Under-5ft kumite and the junior sambon kumite, and his team-mate Yassine Adjaj also secured a gold medal in the Over-5ft junior sambon kumite category.

Adjaj added a bronze medal in the boys’ event, while Sobell also picked up a fourth gold in the men’s 7th to 1st kyu kumite event, courtesy of Del Andrew.

There were silver medals for Frank Setbol (boys’ Under-5ft kumite) and Sami Elbadawi (Over-5ft kumite) and the club also collected another four bronzes.

Those went to Sharnia Welsh (girls’ kumite), Natalia Rodregues (junior sambon Under-5ft kumite), Adam Moussaoui (peewee sambon kumite) and Teddy Seatory (peewee kata).
