Proving he can stand up to the best of them he got all the way to the final in sparring and pulled off a proud second place silver medal by losing by just three points from a very well-executed reverse turning kick from his opponent.
Jack said: 'It was an excellent tournament and a real eye opener to watch some of the country's best practitioners compete and excellent to see my sparring coach pull off a gold medal in the adult black belt division.'
