FIVE female judokas from the Young Men's Christian Association of Baguio bagged medals in 2nd All Women's Martial Arts Festival held at SM Mega Trade Center in Metro Manila last May 25.

Zaira Aquitania and Mariah Christine Pauly won the gold in their weight class, Charmea Quelino grabbed the silver in the 15-year-old age category and Kaye Ales and Andrea De Leon took the bronze in their own divisions.

Close to a thousand athletes from all over the country took part in judo, arnis, boxing, fencing, karatedo, muay thai, pencak silat, taekwondo, wrestling and wushu events during the three-day tournament.

The Baguio judokas are from the YMCA Kaitagi Judo club under sensei Willy Dino and Ferdinand Cudao. (Larry Fabian)
