On Trial

Fighters from the Falcon Fight Academy in Dinnington, will this weekend be trying to impress the powers that be. 

The fighters have all put a massive amount of effort into their training and are challenging to secure their positions as part of the GB Kickboxing team, to challenge for gold at this year's World Championships. 

The President of the British Freestyle Karate and Kickboxing Organisation (BFKKO), Cris Janson-Piers, announced that the prestigious English Institute of Sport is to be the venue for this year's GB squad training event on Saturday, ahead of this August's WOMAA World Games. 

All who have registered to trial must be at the venue by 1:45pm. The squad selection will commence at 2pm prompt. The trials are expected to be completed by 5pm. 

Cris explained: "I am really proud of all the competitors who represent our clubs on a regular basis. They all train so hard and deserve to be given the opportunity to train at such an impressive venue as the English Institute of Sport. 

"Some of the best athletes have trained at this venue. This shows how far the BFKKO has come and it also shows the level of ambition within our organisation" 

He went on to say: "We have well in excess of 100 athletes trying to gain selection to represent their country at the WOMAA World Championships in August this year. 

"I believe we have some very strong martial artists who are more than capable of bringing home gold this year." 

I know Cris will have all his competitors in tip-top shape for both the trials and the Championships come August. There will be no fitness issues and each of them will know exactly what is required to achieve success for their country.
