Bethany Jones travelled to York for the WKKC Ippon Challenge and came away with a win in the women’s Over 65kg semi-contact and a third place in the women’s Under 65kg semi-contact.

And completing a terrific family treble, Rebecca Jones was in action at the Unity World Games in Newark and was crowned ‘world champion’ in the over 65kg semi-contact class.
