Ryan won all his fights with a maximum ippon score, underlining the fact he’s now undoubtedly number one at his age and weight in Great Britain. He remains undefeated this year and is now looking forward to his next competition, the Kent International Championship in June.

Ryan’s success has greatly encouraged many of his club mates to enter competitions and gradings and they have all done the club proud with their excellent results and performances. As a consequence of this, more of the younger members are entering competitions and gradings and all the classes are going from strength to strength and growing all the time.

Ryan is receiving one-to-one coaching from his dad and coach, former British Champion Dominic King, and also uses his experience to help coach the younger players at his club, Dominic King Judo and MMA Academy.

Anyone interested in finding out more about the club and join Ryan should contact Dominic on 07977 432756, email dominic@fightingfitjudo.co.uk or contact him via Facebook. All session times and venues can be found on the website, www.fightingfitjudo.co.uk.
