What a weekend, great step up for the team with improved performances from all in Patterns & Sparring.

Michael Clark – done great winning silver in the under 18 years pattern division, a large group with some excellent patterns especially from the Russian team. Also picking up a silver in sparring 🥈🥈
Connor McDonald – has a strong fight against a fast Russian in the first round and then loosing out to a good fighter in the final. Also an improved performance in Pattern.🥈
Shaun Thomson – improves performance in pattern getting through 2 rounds and missing out on a medal. Good performances in sparring, dominating his first fight with some nice combos and then an epic final with Ben in which boys gave it their all.🥈
This is just the beginning for the livi guys and the whole GMS team, every time we travel we raise the profile of GMSMA. Back in the mats next week boys to take it to the next level.
