Brotherly love: Kickboxer Grant claims family bragging rights as BCKA dominate
KICKBOXING brothers Grant and Courtney Brown met for the first time in open competition - and it was Grant who secured the bragging rights.
The Whittlesey pair, who represent the British and Chinese Kickboxing Association, clashed in the under-74kg advanced men final at the second round of the Peterborough Championship series.
Grant’s victory was the highlight of a triumphant meet for the BCKA, who train in Wisbech, March, Chatteris and Whittlesey. The Fenland fighters dominated their categories to leave the club in prime position to retain their title.
The impressive showing was part of a memorable fortnight for the BCKA, who also took six members to a charity event called ‘Fight for the Century’.
Two students, Zac Culpin and Rob Clarke, have also passed their first degree black belts after a successful grading at Corby.
