Meanwhile, Nesta Baxter - who has just received a call-up to the Great Britain squad - came second in the advanced girls’ under 50kg light continuous.

Chelsea Leggatt came second in the advanced girls’ over 55kg light continuous and she was also runner-up in the advanced girls’ over 55kg points.

Ten-year-old Ambie Brockelsby came runner-up in the advaced boys’ under 30kg points.

Meanwhile, members of Evolution were treated to a masterclass at their Fishtoft base, thanks to mixed martial arts star Judo Jimmy Wallhead.

Wallhead is a member of Team Rough House, along with Boston’s very own cage fighter Matt Hallam.

The Leicester-based competitor was on hand to pass on tips and work with members.
