Basingstoke Kickboxing Organisation have 5 members of the club representing Great Britain in the upcoming WAKO World and European kickboxing championships this year
Father and Daughter Charlotte and Andrew Evans have both made the team in the Juniors and adults section respectively. Charlotte will be travelling to Hungary to compete in the Junior European championships. She has been a member of the team for a few years and this is her second championships. Andrew will represent GB for the first time in the +41 yrs men's section of the WAKO world Championships in Turkey in November.
Also competing in the junior championships for the first time is junior instructor Paige Adcock. Paige has been winning many tournaments this year and is looking for a good performance and a podium spot.
Also in the adult team is Rob Payne who won the men's +41yrs British and European championships last year and is now looking to add the world championship title to his honours
Another BKO instructor Liz Ferioli and regular GB team member will be taking on the daunting task of competing in the Points fighting world championships in Turkey and then travelling to take part in the Light continuous world championships in Slovenia. This is an excellent comeback for her after giving birth earlier on this year and she stands a good chance of a medal in both categories.
