WHITTLESEY martial arts star Courtney Brown collected his second British title in three weeks at the WAKO (world all style kickboxing organisation) British Championships in Birmingham.

The 16 year-old, from the British and Chinese Kickboxing Association (BCKA), was victorious in the under-74kg 16-18 years section, adding the WAKO title to the World Kickboxing Council title he won in Manchester last month.

Brown also collected a bronze medal in the under-79kg section of the 16-18 years section.

BCKA coach Andy Whitwell paid tribute to his young protege, who is set to compete at the world championships later this year.

He said: “Courtney has been with me for a long time and has remained loyal to this association and this area. He is a joy to train and it is a joy to watch him spar.”

Wisbech’s Charlotte Cameron, 12, won a bronze medal in the under-16 girls category, holding her own against competitors who were up to four years older than her.

She has been selected to fight in a youth team at the prestigious Clash of the Titans event, which will be held in Huddersfield on March 16.
