Fighters from three counties flock to Fenland for BCKA Peterborough Invitational

FIGHTERS from across three counties put on a martial arts masterclass in Fenland on Saturday.

British and Chinese Kickboxing Association competitors from Cambridgeshire, Lincolnshire and Leicestershire put on a host of great bouts at the Peterborough Invitational in Whittlesey.

England team member Courtney Brown, who trains in Whittlesey, was the event’s star winning all three categories he entered during a hard-hitting day of action.

Coach Andy Whitwell said: “It was great to see students new to competitions putting everything into their fights and doing well.

“This event is a great stepping stone to gain experience before entering national events. I was very impressed with the desire to win from all of our students.”

• For more information on the BCKA, whose Fenland sessions are held in Wisbech, March, Chatteris and Whittlesey, contact Whitwell on 07969792286.
