Granadilla applauds Jiu Jitsu success
Three Granadilla sportsmen have won a gold medal and two silvers in the Canary Jiu Jitsu Championship, organised by the Royal Spanish Federation of Judo and Associated Sports held in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria.
Specifically, the highest award went to Pedro Cle-mente, in the -94 Ne Waza modality; and the two second places went to Rubén Molina, in -64 Me Waza, and Pedro Lara, in Kumité.
The athletes, from Club Ryoshinkai Tenerife, have qualified, after these brilliant results, for the next Champion-ship of Spain that is scheduled to be held in March in Madrid.
Councillor for sports, Sara Cano, conveys her congra-tulations to the three martial arts professionals, since it is the first time that a representation from Granadilla will attend a national competition. She also highlights the trajectory of this club, which began its journey in the municipality in 2003 and teaches up to five different disciplines for adults and children in the municipal pavilion of Granadilla and the M3 centre in El Médano.
In addition, the Club Ryoshinkai Tenerife, integrated by professionals and experts in martial arts, is a pioneer in the south in matters of personal defence and women.
