Immediately after this section Darren once more took to the mats against four other clubs in his weapons division. Again Darren’s superior technique with the Kamas won out, with him claiming his second gold medal of the morning.

Tomás Flanagan debuted in continuous sparring, entering the intermediate division for his age category. Tomás dominated the fighter for the full time and achieved a place in the final.

The final was hotly contested with Tomás volleying jabs and round kicks on his opponent to be awarded his first ever competition gold medal by unanimous decision from the three judges.

The two junior members achieved three gold medals on the day and did themselves and the club proud.

Training now continues for the Leinster Championships which take place in two weeks time where the two boys, along with other members of their club, compete for regional titles and a place in the National Championships.
