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%
