A sister act that’s hard to follow
Three kickboxing sisters from the city’s JAMA martial arts club were winners in three top competitions at the weekend.
Lianne Jones competed in the G-Force Open Finale in Rugby, and took first place in the women’s Under 76kg semi-contact competition and also took home the GForce Grand Champion belts for both the Under 76kg and Under 62kg categories.
Bethany Jones travelled to York for the WKKC Ippon Challenge and came away with a win in the women’s Over 65kg semi-contact and a third place in the women’s Under 65kg semi-contact.
And completing a terrific family treble, Rebecca Jones was in action at the Unity World Games in Newark and was crowned ‘world champion’ in the over 65kg semicontact class.
The G-Force Open Finale also saw JAMA kickboxing student Jake Peppercorn claim first place in the boys semi-contact Over 65kg category plus the G-Force Grand Champion belt.
