9th Scottish Open at Bellahouston Glasgow – 8-9 Nov 2014

Glasgow was mostly grey but the people were welcoming and friendly. Unfortunatley, we didnt have much time to see the city as we spend so muc time inside the sports centre.

What a weekend! We had a mixture of results. The Bellahouston Centre was large enough but it could not compete with Ravenscraig in terms of facilities but it had good food on offer.

The fights were difficult and it has been quite some time since the team has not won the team trophy.
Adam Mattis, Daniel Martin, Tom Gore, Elaine , Khadija Muslim and Fatima Muslim put in fantastic and noteworthy performances. Feya Mattis and Millie Scholes, Maryam Muslim showed real bravery and courage in their fights. The support of each fighter was good and there was a good team spirit with Jay being the main cheerleader.

Ed, Zainab, Zayd and Safia put in creditable Poomsae performances and Safia grabbed a silver in her category.

The team meal on Saturday was good fun and there was much laughter, jokes and stories. It was a good bonding time.

The team has been invited to Iceland and Spain in 2015 so there is a lot of training and preparation required to make sure the team is ready.

Keep Stretching!
