Another great day, thank you Jon Hegan!
The excellent Isla Scott, achieved a fantastic 4th place in Kata at the AMA International Championship in Sheffield. Losing out on a bronze medal by 2/10ths (yes! .2 of a point!) in this prestigious event where only a single bronze is awarded.
Isla's category was one of the biggest of the day and confirms her place as one of the top Kata girls in the country.

Well done girls, very impressive.
Isla Scott: a fantastic silver medal giving away height, weight and age, a brilliant performance in her last fight winning 8-3. Well done that girl !
Really excellent performances bearing in mind we have taken a step back from partaking in too many competitions this year.
This sets us up for our 2017 program of events.
Well done to the TMAC squad you should all be proud of yourselves.
