Fenland fighters help British Chinese Kickboxing Association retain championship crown
FIGHTERS from Fenland have helped the British Chinese Kickboxing Association retain their title as Grand Champions after they finished 200 points clear of their nearest opposition.
The BCKA, who have clubs in March, Whittlesey, Wisbech and Chatteris, stormed to success in the Overall Schools Grand Championship for Peterborough after fantastic displays at events throughout the year.
The club secured the title for the second year running, adding it to their success at the Boston championships.
Standout performers included Aaron Godden, who returned from a 12 month break to win his category, and Jack Bristowe who defeated boys older than him to win his own section.
Marco Broccoli, Kris Leuridan, Grant Brown, Courtney Brown and Cat Harris also played vital roles in the success.
The BCKA meet across Fenland and currently have a special offer on for new members. For more information contact Andy Whitwell on 07969792286 or visit www.bcka-peterborough.co.uk
