Teddy’s dou­ble swoop

Harefield Gazette - - SPORT -

WEST Dray­ton’s Teddy Tan­ner claimed two mar­tial arts medals at the Matt Fid­des Bri­tish Cham­pi­onships in Swin­don ear­lier this month.

The six-year-old Matt Fid­des Mar­tial Arts Club stu­dent fended off 40 other com­peti­tors at Swin­don’s Oa­sis Leisure Cen­tre as he picked up a gold medal for his hand drills and bronze for his combo wave.

And the West Dray­ton Pri­mary School star’s mother was de­lighted with her son’s achieve­ments.

Mum Suzanne Tan­ner said: “Get­ting gold in only his sec­ond com­pe­ti­tion was bet­ter than any of us could have dreamed of.

“I was very proud. The whole fam­ily came out to sup­port him and all of his coaches were so pleased.

“This was only his sec­ond com­pe­ti­tion and he’ll be go­ing in for more now.”

The an­nual Matt Fid­des Cham­pi­onship is for all ages from three years old and all abil­i­ties in­clud­ing pur­ple belt and up­wards.
