Below are some of the achievements our students have achieved outside of school. Congratulations to each and every one of them. We love to hear of their successes.
Well done to Gene Church (10B) who throughout lockdown has been completing a daily 1-hour workout routine. In February he started a ‘Go Fund Me’ page to raise money for IMKAAN, a charity dedicated to addressing violence against Black and minoritised women and girls. So far he's raised £535.00 and he's 3000 push ups into his 4000 target, doing 100 push ups every day for the cause. You can visit his page here.
Keep up the good work Gene!
Huge congratulations to Louis (8R) and Cavalli (8R) who have signed for Bristol City Football Academy. Very well done boys!
UTS World Virtual Youth Festival Championships
With the coronavirus pandemic all over the world, GB has unfortunately not been able to compete in any international kickboxing tournaments, but has had the chance to represent GB and compete in the UTS (United Through Sport) World Virtual Youth Festival. https://www.unitedthroughsport.org/
The qualifying rounds were 3-4 weeks ago where 10 young athletes from GB Martial Arts Gym in Bristol (GB Fit) represented GB and competed against other top athletes in their own governing kickboxing association (WAKO, World association of Kickboxing Organisations).
They had to perform 6 different exercises over a period of time and were then judged on the amount and the quality of each exercise they did, and were against many different countries worldwide in our association.
Liam Holden (11G) came 1st in his division (Max Fit Boys -16yrs) and has now qualified to go into the finals which are being held virtually in Bangkok on 20th-22nd November.
For this final, he has to now perform 12 exercises for a period of time and will be judged over this weekend by judges from different sports from around the world in the virtual finals in Bangkok.
Well done Liam!
We will keep you updated with his progress.
