On a personal level, I had a wonderful day as my son, Archie Lowdon (aged 9) competed at the event, as he is a student of Mr James of Matt Fiddes Martial Arts Widnes. This was his first ever Martial Arts competition and he was feeling very nervous about it, but he did very well indeed winning the 3rd place Bronze medal for his category which was Hand Drills and Best Technique. He got through to the semi-final and lost, but then won his third place Bronze medal, shown in the video below.
