Padded stick competition

EA Doce Pares at The Martial Art Show

1 Gold, 3 Silvers and 1 Bronze.

On 7th May 2011, the most anticipated Martial Art Show happened at the NEC in Birmingham. EA Doce Pares sent in 3 entries for the two Eskrima tournaments that were held that day: WEKAF and Padded formats.

The day went really well with competitors from all over the UK attending the tournaments. Ermar Alexander won a Gold in the WEKAF double stick sparring and a Bronze in the Padded single stick format. Ismael Fraser won Silvers in each of the events that he competed in: WEKAF single and double stick, and the Padded single stick. Shamim Mohibur didn't manage to bring any home but his performance surpassed everyone's expectations!

Unfortunately, due to time constraints, the Padded double stick event was cancelled.

Congratulations to everybody in the EA Doce Pares team, and it was so nice to see our friends from all over the UK once again.
