Instructors Mr Bernarte and Mr Islam said: "This was our last tournament of the year. All of the students worked hard in preparation for this competition, training 4-5 times per week.
"Their commitment and dedication has been rewarded and are fully deserved. We are very proud of our London Team, our unity is our strength, we are stronger together."
