Fighters from the Stamford BCKA Kickboxing Club have been showcasing their talents again with a healthy medal haul.
The Borderville-based club have had fighters competing at the WKC English Championships (where all medal winners qualify for the England team in the WKC World Championships in October), WAKO British Championships and Peterborough Series.
And, despite missing several of their fighters through and injury and illness, instructor Andy Whitwell was delighted with the run of success.
He said: “We were not as busy as usual because unfortunately some of our fighters are injured or recovering from surgery and illness.
“However, the fighters that did attend gave it their all and produced some excellent results. It once again proves that we have a very talented team of fighters.”

The club meets every Sunday night from 6.30-8pm at Borderville Sports Centre and are looking for new members.
They are currently running a special offer of £30 for life membership which includes a four-week introductory course and free uniform.
All of the sessions are on a pay-as-you-train basis with discounts for families.
All sessions are men, women and children mixed and new members will train alongside experienced students.
Andy explained: “This way is far more beneficial to you as you will pick it up quicker from the people around you in a fun, family-orientated environment.
“The classes are excellent for anti-bulling, stress busting, fitness, weight loss, confidence and self defence.
“There are also guaranteed improvements in your general well being, self confidence, self esteem, assertiveness, muscle tone, blood pressure and, through the grading system, the chance to gain a sense of achievement and the ability to defend yourself in a time of need.”
