KUGB Grandslam Review – Aug 2015

The second KUGB Grandslam of the year took place on the Bank Holiday weekend in August, with 5 of Malverns 6 KUGB England squad members in attendance.

Emily Hughes gained another ranked position claiming third place in the female Junior Kumite along with Robert Crowney who was competing in his first event since his break over in America. Robert also took third in the male 18-20 year olds Kumite.


However, it was Aidan McLean who came away with first place in the Male under 16’s Kumite. Aidan finished his event in the final in spectacular fashion scoring a devastating counter punch which landed perfectly to give him the Ippon.

Well done to all that competed.
