The Year 9 student competed last month at the Thailand Jiu-Jitsu Championships at Rangsit University in Bangkok, where he took home gold medals in all four categories – Newaza GI, No GI, Fighting and Dual.
The three-day tournament was held between Nov 13-15 with different weight and age categories under the supervision of the Thailand Jiu-Jitsu Federation.
Valentine, who is just 13-years-old, competed in the advanced Under 15 category with athletes over 73kg.
Back in October, Valentine was also awarded an official black belt (1st Dan) from the Thailand Jiu-Jitsu Federation after completing his promotion test. He is among just three athletes in Thailand under the age of 18 to be awarded this honour.
Congratulations Valentine on these fantastic achievements!
