On Sunday, May 18, the British Military Martial Arts Angus club’s ‘Elite Team’, sponsored by local company Top Marks Fitness, attended the Top Ten Kickboxing UK Open at the NEC in Birmingham.

After a long journey and an overnight stay, no-one could have predicted the amazingly successful day that was about to unfold.

Competing against the top fighters in the land, the team returned with an incredible haul of five bronze medals, one silver and a new British champion, with Sean Reid getting the coveted gold medal in his category.

The club, as always, are offering a two-week free trial and a free suit on joining.
