Yesterday was a very special day for our Club winning two Awards at the Active Essex​ Sports Awards.   

Mia Hillsden won the 'Young Sports Personality of the Year' following an outstanding year where she was a KUGB (Karate Union of Great Britain)​ National Grand Champion on two occasions and then won Gold at the WSKA World Shotokan Karate-Do Association​ Championships in Italy.   

Sensei Richard Naylor-Jones​ was also presented with an Ambassador of the Year Award for the volunteer work he has been doing with Essex All Together​ for Disability Sports.   

The duo were supported at the event by Kevin and So Hillsden, Richard Kheder and Wayne Lottering.  It was a great evening and fantastic that both of these individuals had their achievements recognised in the world of sport.

Following their awards they were interviewed by both Heart Essex​ and BBC Essex​.

Both Mia and Richard would like to thank everyone at the Club, friends and family who have supported them.  They had a great evening and are looking forward to seeing you all in the Dojo.

Well done Mia and Richard
