FIGHTING for the first time as an adult black belt, Wisbech teenager Stuart Murat brought home two silver medals at the weekend from the Norfolk Open Taekwon-do Championships.
The 17-year-old was pipped to the gold by Justin Grey, 41, from Downham Market in the Adult Black Belt Sparring and Adult Black Belt Patterns.
It was a close bout with Murat putting in an impressive performance but the vastly more experienced Gray came out on top on points.
Anthony Carter, Murat’s trainer, paid tribute to his young protege.
He said: “Stuart displayed a very high level of maturity and skill in both the patterns, which are very complex, and the sparring which was incredibly hard-fought.”
Mr Carter runs Taekwon-do classes at the Hudson Sports Centre on Monday, Wednesday and Friday evenings between 6pm and 7pm.
