Martial artists from Ardee’s Universal Fitness Studio enjoyed great success at the recent WOMAA World Martial Arts Games in Dublin.

Competitors – both adults and children – made the trip to Dublin’s Citywest Hotel to compete alongside martial artists from across the world in multiple disciplines and divisions.


The group from Universal Fitness Studio stepped up their training in preparation for the event and it duly paid off as the club returned with an impressive medal haul.

The club, based in Ardee’s Enterprise Centre, won a total of 58 medals at the three day event. Of those 58 medals, 15 came from the club’s seven adult competitors while a massive 43 medals came courtesy of 32 children aged between 6-14 years old.

Universal Fitness Studio’s owner Nigel McArdle spoke of the club’s success. “Competition days can be long and hard, but thanks to the great attitude of everyone involved, lots of fun was had, too.”

“Well done to all our competitors and a big thank you to all the family and friends who came along to support.”
