Excellent results from a new event held on Saturday, June 4 at Lodge Park Sports Centre, Corby
BCKA Chief instructor Alex Barrowman hosted the BCKA National kung fu and kick boxing Championships, also featuring the European invitational Challenge cup event with over 300 entries into the points fighting, Continuous fighting, kung fu forms and weapons sections made this a superb martial arts tournament.
Fighters and competitors from Ireland, Scotland, Germany and around England met at Lodge Park Sports Centre, Corby to witness martial arts at the very top level, some of the best fighters of the UK were on display and didn't disappoint, the Irish and German teams were also highly skilled fighters, making this tournament a total success, enjoyed by the fighters, competitors, coaches and spectators.
Over 20 fighters from Peterborough BCKA fought well to collect 18 x European Invitation titles, with many second and third place medals, however with such a high standard of competitor, a few of our members were unlucky to miss out.
This is great news for our new sponsor, as this was our first competition in the uniforms sponsored by MT Cars - Subaru of Whittlesey.
As always, I am very proud of all of our fighters, whether they win or lose, as I know they all gave 100%

Peterborough area BCKA clubs have been very busy over the last few weekends, as always our fighters performed superbly with many medals and trophies being collected at the three Championships.
I am very proud of our fighters who compete again this weekend (Saturday 26th September) in the BCKA Tri-Series. The Tri-Series is a new event where Northamptonshire, Lincolnshire and Cambridgeshire clubs compete against each other in a league system to determine who is the best fighter of the three counties; first and second place in each category will compete in a ‘Fight Night’ for the Grand Champion belt and is going to be a great event.

Six Peterborough BCKA Fenland fighters gearing up for WKC Championships with medals on their minds
Between Peteborough BCKA competitors Chelsea Munday, Freya Molloy, Jaden Harris, Eddy Paddock, Leon Gold and Grant Brown have, in 2014, collected an impressive 52 titles, 25 of which have been at British or European level.
So it should come as no surprise that executive instructor Andy Whitwell thinks his fighters all have a great opportunity to win medals at the championships, which takes place in Albufeira from November 1-4.
He said: “I am confident that they will do very well, they are six of the best.
“These students are on top of their game and are by far the best fighters in their categories in this area.
“The loyalty and dedication shown by these members make them a pleasure to teach and work with.
“We are all part of a great team working closely with the England squad, pulling in the same direction and I believe this is the backbone of Peterborough BCKA and the reason why we are so successful.
“Without loyalty and respect the team would not enjoy the current results.
“I cannot praise these fighters enough, they are all single-minded in the pursuit for excellence and by training as often and as hard as they do, being as focused as they are, they are giving themselves a great opportunity to win a medal and possibly come home as a WKC World Champion.”
Courtney Brown of Whittlesey also qualified for the championships but recently had a baby daughter so can not make the trip.
The kickboxers are looking for sponsorship to help fund their championship dreams.
If anyone can offer assistance to members of this team, contact Andy Whitwell on 07969792286 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org

The Peterborough BCKA club have six of their fighters preparing to take on the world.
Representing England in the WKC World Karate and Kick-boxing Championships in Portugal next month will be Chelsea Munday, Leon Gold, Jaden Harris, Grant Brown, Freya Molloy and Eddie Paddock.
The championships take place in Albufeira from November 1-4.
Proud coach Andy Whitwell said: “It’s a great achievement to have six fighters from one club competing and I am obviously very proud.
“And I am confident they will do very well. They really are six of the best.
“I cannot praise them enough. They are all single-minded in the pursuit for excellence and by training as often and as hard as they do, and being as focused as they are, they are giving themselves a great opportunity to win a medal and possibly come home as a world champion.”
To qualify for the WKC World Championships fighters had to win medals at the WKC British Championships.
And there were in fact seven Peterborough fighters who achieved that but Courtney Brown from Whittlesey is unable to travel due to family commitments.
The six making the trip have won an impressive 52 titles in 2014, 25 of which have been either British or European. A further 21 titles were gained at open competitions.
The outstanding students train five to six times a week and apart from improving their skills they also do a lot of road running and circuit training.
Whitwell added: “And it is not only on the competition mats where their success has manifested. Many of them have also had sports awards presented to them and this is a direct result of the performances within martial arts and I am proud to say that I have been a big part of their progress and development.”
Freya Molloy is the reigning Peterborough Telegraph Junior Sportswoman of the Year and Chelsea Munday and Eddy Paddock were runners-up in their categories, while Jaden Harris was voted Ken Stimpson School Sports Personality of the Year and Paddock the Sir Harry Smith Community College Sports Personality of the Year
The six are always on the lookout for sponsors and if anybody is willing to help they can contact Andy Whitwell on 07969792286 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org

Great news from the FSK British Championships which was held at George H Carnall Sports Centre, Kingsway Park, Urmston, Manchester on Sunday 31st August.
All Peterborough fighters are on top form, winning numerous 'open Championships' and British titles this year already and on Sunday the fighters took part in the prestigious FSK British Championships.
The fighters are training extremely hard and I believe that if they keep calm and focused at the world championships in Portugal at the end of next month, all have the potential to become world champions.
I am very proud of all of the fighters and we are now looking for new starters to learn from our squad and maybe go on to become world champions too, however fighting and competing is not compulsory as we offer kickboxing purely for fitness training too.
We are now looking to recruit the next wave of potential world champions, Contact Andy Whitwell on 07969792286 for further details
