It was all action for Whittlesey BCKA Kickboxing and Kung Fu Clubs before the coronavirus lockdown was enforced, but they look to kick back into the flow soon.

The club, which is a member of the Whittlesey Sports Association, held weekly sessions on Friday evenings at the Eastrea Centre for both beginners and more advanced competitors.

The group is led by Andy Whitwell, who has a wealth of experience in the trade.

Whitwell is a senior executive instructor for Peterborough and the surrounding areas, as well as a BCKA kickboxing Sixth Degree Black Belt, a Fourth Degree Black Sash in BCKA Five Animals Kung Fu and a Third Degree Black Sash in Lau Gar Kung Fu.

A club spokesperson said: “Andy’s group would normally train at Sir Harry Smith Community College, but the Eastrea Centre have stepped in to enable the sessions to continue.”
