7:00am Saturday 19th October 2013 in Sport
CREWE-BASED martial artists gained international recognition at an awards ceremony in London.
Fudoshin Ju Jitsu club leader John Lawton and fellow instructor Nigel Tew were joined by black belts Adam Tweets and Dave Bexon to clinch the Team Award at the event in Greenwich.
Tew was also recognised for an outstanding performance during the team demonstrations.
The event was staged at Thomas Tallis School, a venue used for Judo at last year’s Olympic Games, and comprised 350 participants from 16 different countries stretching as far as Japan and the USA.
Fudoshin Ju Jitsu Club is based at the Cheshire Academy of Integrated Sport and Arts at the Broad Street Project in Crewe.
The club has recently relocated to the Cheshire Academy and enjoys first class training facilities on Olympic standard mats.
“I am absolutely delighted by the team performance at such a prestigious event with so many nations represented,” said Lawson. “Having such a great place to train undoubtedly contributed to our success.”
Anyone interested in joining Fudoshin Ju Jitsu Club is invited to attend the Cheshire Academy on Broad Street for a free first session at 6.30pm on Tuesdays.
