WKC European Open and Peterborough Interclub

Posted by on July 28, 2014 at 5:40 AM

The event on 20th July was held at George H Carnall sports centre in Manchester and was the WKC European Open Championships, points and light continuous categories from 5 years to Veteran.


Seven Peterborough Fighters took part in this event gaining an impressive 13 medals, with one European Champion in Freya Molloy.


I am very proud of this group of fighters, individually they are doing well but as a team they are encouraging each other and training hard together, 2014 is proving to be a good year for us, the bond in this team is extremely strong and the support for each other and from the traveling army of parents and friends makes Peterborough BCKA a force to be reckoned with at any and every event we attend.

The competition on 27th July was the Peterborough Interclub Championships, hosted by Clifton Findley


This was a friendly get together from mostly Peterborough Fighters and although a quite small event the quality of fighters there was very good.


Competitors were matched up to create some excellent fights with the 'main bout' being between Peterborough BCKA Grant Brown and Joe Cheetham of Verve kickboxing, Grant won a thrilling fight of two rounds to collect the trophy and the prize money that was put up by the organiser.


As expected, our fighters dominated every category and crowned champions of 13 categories, from the 15 categories entered, proving once again that Peterborough BCKA are the strongest team in the area!

Nationals, Norfolk open and Peterborough series

Posted by on June 30, 2014 at 7:35 PM

The National BCKA Championships.

These were held at Lodge Park Sports centre, Corby where around 300 fighters assembled to compete in the National Championships, as always the competition at this prestigious event was of the highest level but my fighters did extremely well, fighter of the day at this event was Edward Paddock who entered four categories and became national champion in each one, winning his own category was expected but when he stepped up to fight boys that were over 6' while giving away three years and a lot of weight, he did exceptionally well!

Every fighter from our team gave an excellent display with some new fighters coming through and gaining valuable experience at the highest level.

Norfolk Open.

The Norfolk Open is staged in Stalham, Norfolk and once again our fighters went along to compete although I only sent a selected few to fight.

The event was smaller than anticipated and our fighters dominated every single section they entered becoming champions in 14 of the 17 Categories entered.

There is another event in Norfolk later this year but I am unsure whether we will attend as the competitors didn't test our fighters sufficiently.

Peterborough series.

I took a medium team of fighters to the Peterborough open series yesterday at Ken Stimson school, Werrington, Peterborough

As usual this event did not disappoint and there was excellent fighters on display to rival our fighters, this event gets stronger every year, along with the fighters that attend from far afield.


Our usual fighters collected trophies but I was particularly pleased for two newcomers that stepped up and took on all comers in their section. Ashton Brannigan, a young man from Whittlesey that's won his first trophy at an open competition and Vincent Spencer who collected third place in continuous along with a champion trophy, the third-place trophy was well deserved after fighting in the -65kg boys section and eventually beating an experienced black belt in the third place fight off, Vincent is only an orange belt and been training for a short period of time, he listened to my instructions during the fight and will go a long way within the sport.

WKC Manchester - Points event 9/2/14

Posted by on February 10, 2014 at 12:25 PM

This competition is a major one as it is the WKC British Championships and with any medal won the fighter automatically qualifies for the WKC World Championships 2014 to be held in Portugal later in October, so there is a lot at stake.


The event, held at George H Carnall sports centre in Manchester was points fighting only and there will be the continuous British Championships in two weeks time back at the same venue.


Seven Peterborough Fighters took part in this event gaining an impressive 11 medals, with all seven fighters qualifying to fight in the worlds later in the year



I am very pleased with the way the evening Telegraph sports award finalist completed, all three collected a silver and a gold medal on the day, fighting in two categories each.


Freya Molloy easily won her final fight against last year's winner, Freya has improved immensely as a talent and dominated this fight!


Eddy Paddock's first round fight was against the Liverpool fighter that beat him in the World Championship final last year, he was very nervous going into this fight but came out victorious and went on to win a gold medal.


Chelsea Munday, in her first experience at the WKC Championships fought well to gain a silver in the -60kg girls 16-17 years.



Peterborough clubs other four fighters did well and all collected bronze medals which qualifies them for the world's this year


I am extremely proud of this group of fighters, individually they done very well but as a team they are encouraging each other and training hard together, 2014 is going to be a good year for Peterborough BCKA.



Next week we take two teams to Peterborough series in Werrington and WAKO Championships in Birmingham, all these competitions are fine tuning our fighters for The Irish Open on 1st and 2nd of March in Dublin, the largest martial arts tournament in Europe.
