A MULTI-talented 10-year-old from Pershore claimed gold and silver medals at the Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Junior European Championships in Birmingham.

Max Feeney competed in both the gi and no gi styles of fighting at the event which attracted more than 1,000 competitors.

He fought off some very tough opponents from all over the globe to finish at the top of the podium in the no gi style and came within four points of picking up another gold in the gi format.

His other passion is racing motorcycles in the British Supermoto Championship and only took up Brazilian Jiu Jitsu six months ago to keep himself fit.

But since taking up the sport Feeney has instantly fallen in love with it and with the help of Trojan Freefighters Worcester he has been brought up to competition standard in a short space of time.

“I’m super happy with the gold and silver medals as I’m not really a fighter I’m a motorbike rider,” Feeney said.

“But I love training and being part of the Trojan Worcester family.

“All the kids and coaches there are great and we have fun which is the main thing.”

Feeney is now going to be training hard over the winter for 2018 as he is racing his motorcycle in the Junior World Championships in Spain in March.

After his recent success on the mats he also wants to take on the World Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Junior Championships which is in July.
