South Leeds kickboxers head Stateside

October is set to be an exciting month for a talented group of kickboxers from the South Leeds Area. Eight members of the Kenshin Martial Arts squad will be heading out to Orlando to compete at the prestigious WKC World Championships.
The team secured their spots in the England squad after competing at the National Championships in March which were held in Manchester.

Since qualifying the group have work hard dedicating any spare time to extra training sessions, including at Rowland road Club in Beeston Hill with lots of late nights and early mornings.

As well as the dedication they have shown to training, the group have been working hard behind the scenes fundraising to cover the costs of the trip as unfortunately kickboxing is a fully self funded sport.

There are still sponsorship opportunities available if any local businesses would like to support the group in achieving their goals.

Kenshin Martial Arts run classes daily in South Leeds for all ages (3+) and ability. For further information please contact
