Bronze medals for Maple Ridge martial artist

Maple Ridge’s Jusdia Greissel took home a pair of bronze medals at this year’s 47th annual Vancouver Kendo Competition. Greissel is a student with the Matsu-Kai Kendo and Laido Club has been training in Japanese two-handed fencing for the past three years.

Greissel, 11, beat out 18 fellow competitors from all over the Lower Mainland and United States to take the third place in the nine- to 12-year-old division.

Her second third-place finish came with the help of fellow teammate David Meng. Together with three others, they beat out five other teams to finish third. Greissel and her brother Mason will be competing in the 2012 B.C. Junior Kendo Competition.
