Wembley’s Pride Judo Club took part in the Oserley red and yellow belt competition in Twickenham.
Aaliyah Kennedy won all of her bouts by ippon, beating clubmate Arianna Feher along the way, to win gold.
Feher fought well to take bronze, while Meghan Pudur also won all of her bouts by ippon to take gold, showing fantastic foot movement.
Daniel Fagyas, Kuka de Silva and Stephen Myint all reached finals, but had to settle for silver medals, while debutant Miguel Aldridge added another bronze.
Coach Lionel Hibbert said: “First tournament is meant to be the ice breaker. Coming to terms with a massive new venue, 200 other competitors, and nerves in general.
“With Aaliyah and Meghan achieving golds and Arianna a bronze the standard was set high.
“Daniel, Kuka and Stephen responded with fantastic finals and for Miguel to round off an excellent day as a bronze medallist was the icing on our cake.”
Pride Judo Club juniors (aged five to 16) train at Vale Farm Sports Centre on Monday and Wednesday (5-7pm) and Sunday (12-2pm).
