Kickboxers flock to city

Have your say

HACKENTHORPE is becoming something of a Mecca for kickboxers with sportsmen from around the world flocking to a local academy.

Last week the British Martial Arts Academy welcomed kickboxers from Norway, the Czech Republic, South Africa, Ukraine and Ireland who travelled to train at the British Martial Arts Academy in Hackenthorpe with members of Team Evolution and their respective coaches, Ashley and Brian Beck.

The fighters used the academy in preparation for the prestigious martial arts tournament – Judgement Day 2011 – which was held at Pond’s Forge in Sheffield.

There are a number of beginners classes now starting for those thinking of taking up the sport. Email or call 2640114 for more information.
