We took a group of first timers and mat timers to the Southern area grand slam today. This is the smallest tournament we do, but it is local and is good for beginners and those who need to shake off the rust after summer hols.
Fighter of the day for me was Jake who changed tactics and had to come back to win after taking some hard hits. Great spirit. Also well done to Todd who has only been training a couple of months and gained a silver in a close final. Chris and Matt shared the honours in only their second tournament and first time at light con. It was good to see Russell jeff back after a short 15 years lay off!
Well done also to Rory and Belle who got the Grand championship trophies.
Rory Grand champion
Belle grand Champion.
Katrina fought well today but was unlucky not to place.
Well done all. :)
Well done everyone who came to the quiz night. £955.80 was raised to send Charlotte to the world championships!!!
This from Belinda.
A huge thank you to everyone who came along and supported our quiz night, we hope you really enjoyed yourselves. We are just checking stock but hope to give you an update on the amount raised soon. Thank you once again to Sharon Louise Ally for your help and support and also to Nicky for putting the quiz together. Thanks also to Ron our quiz master for the evening and Harriet for her fabulous face painting. Our thanks also to all the companies and individuals for their donations, we are really humbled by your generosity.
There’s a few who will tell you, i was really worried about how it would turn out last night but for once I’m truly lost for words and thank each and everyone of you from the bottom of my heart.
The countdown is on as Charlotte heads out to Venice in two weeks time and she will continue to train hard under Ron and George in the meantime. We are very lucky to work with these awesome coaches who constantly push and develop everyone within BKO and who through time and dedication have developed Charlotte’s fighting where she is now traveling across Europe and competing at the highest level.
Thank you from The Evans family.

The September beginners course got off to a flying start with 15 new pupils. After a short introduction and handing out paperwork etc we were off! Beginning with a short warm up consisting of running and then playing various forms of tag we got straight into learning the first punches on focus pads. Then some stretching and kicking using the bar and with partners.
We then learnt the first defences and culminated with putting it all together on the punch bags.
The work rate was high and there were plenty of red faces, but everyone survived well. Great atmosphere and a great start to teh course.
We still have some space if any late comers want to join.
A big THANK YOU! to the Post office for their donation of £1000 to the club. We are using the funds to pay for the kids entries to tournaments. Focusing on children who are beginners or want the opportunity to gain more experience in competitions and become future champions.

Results from a loooong day at the Cimac kids open.
Jasmine . Gold, Bronze team
Charlotte Silver., Bronze team
George Silver, Bronze team.
Princeley. Bronze, Bronze team
Bob Bronze team.
Jake Bronze team
George Bronze Open weight.
Some great performances today. Jasmine showed her strength of spirit and adaptability in her fighting. Coming back from 4 points down and after being hurt.
Princeley did the same in his section.
Paige was strong in her individual category and it was just a short loss of concentration that cost her the gold.
Charlotte's fighting is going from strength to strength with much more variation and determination now. Unlucky in the final.
Jake and Bob had to take on bigger and more experienced opponents today
George hit some nice shots in the open weight but the refs were not all in agreement today.
A good start back, but it took some time to get through it today.
Well done all.
