Dublin 3rd/4th/5th March 2017
Another brilliant performance from the Mavericks Martial Arts team last weekend!
A big group of fighters went over the Irish Sea last weekend led by chief instructor and academy owner Alex Kennedy:
Helen Milne, Lizzie Bell, Navamon Udyanin, Amy McCorkindale, Chris Harvey, Huey Baum, Ryan Smith, Meghan Milne, Mary Hatton and Stevie Parker, all who represented Mavericks to the highest standard, gaining great experience and achieving in their categories.
Alex Kennedy returned with the GOLD in the 84kg Seniors, and another world championship to add to his collection.
Our girls team just missed out on the title by one point, fighting bravely and really coming together despite the last minute new addition to the team.
Lizzie Bell fought against a formidable opponent and just lost out due to some somewhat questionable refereeing.
Helen Milne was up against a renowned fighter who just bettered her, but Helen did amazingly well considering her opponents advantages.
Meghan Milne produced one of the most incredible blitzes which left everybody spectating amazed in her young cadet girls category.
Huey fought bravely in all 3 of his categories, coming up against opponents much older than him but still giving it his best shot, also jumping in to help out another team who were a member down, and representing the high standards of Mavericks throughout.
