The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - SPORT -

PETER­BOR­OUGH BCKA fight­ers shone in the sec­ond round of the Bos­ton Se­ries.

The club’s tal­ented bunch roared to 18 tro­phy suc­cesses at the event in Kir­ton which featrured kick­box­ing, karate, kung-fu and freestyle.

BCKA club chief Andy Whitwell high­lighted the per­for­mances of Courtney Brown (who won the un­der 74kg men’s ad­vanced ti­tle), Harry Nunn (sec­ond in the un­der 5ft 4ins boys’ fight­ing black-belts de­spite only be­ing a blue belt him­self) and Freya Molloy (the girls’ un­der 5ft 2ins cham­pion) for spe­cial praise. Molloy beat a world and Euro­pean cham­pion in the final of her sec­tion.

Whitwell said: “I’m very proud of my fight­ers’ achieve­ments. The stan­dard was very high and ev­ery tro­phy was earned the hard way.

“I hope we can con­tinue our suc­cess at the BCKA Na­tional Cham­pi­onships later this month.”

BCKA are keen to at­tract new stu­dents to their lo­cal clubs at Whit­tle­sey, Stan­ground and Bush­field.

Any­one in­ter­ested should con­tact 5th dan black belt in­struc­tor Andy Whitwell on 07969 792286 or email info@bcka-peter­bor­ough.co.uk
