A sis­ter act that’s hard to fol­low

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Sport -

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.

JAMA are ap­peal­ing to lo­cal com­pa­nies for spon­sor­ship.
