Vaughan Mason, father of ju-jitsu fighter Brindy, says his daughter lost both of her fights Sunday (28 October) at the Long Beach, California, World Championships now concluded.
This was by WhatsApp. “Some great fights, some tough competitors,” Vaughan said in a brief message.
BUZZ replied: “We are very very proud of her. Hong Kong champion, New Zealand champion, invited to join the NZ national team, making it to the world championships… That’s all admirable stuff.”
When will the Masons be back in Sai Kung for a celebratory drink? Wednesday afternoon, Vaughan said. His friends will know where to find him. He didn’t say whether our 14-year-old local hero will join us. We hope so. Brindy is a very special young lady.
