Kickboxing Pupils to Represent Team GB in October!
On the 2nd October 2016, Maddie Smith and her bother Zach both attended trials in Leicester, which would see them, if successful, get into Team GB to compete in Mexico in October 2017. They would come up against Mexico, Canada & USA, in Light Contact, Semi Contact, Kata & Forms. The trial lasted a few hours and at the end of it, it was confirmed that they had both made it into the squad! They have been kickboxing training since February 2011 when Maddie was 9 years old and Zac was 6. They attend Black Cobra Kickboxing club in Hanley and commit to three or four sessions every week. Maddie also now teaches the “super tinies” (under 6s) twice a week too.
With a little under four weeks to go until they fly over to Mexico, we all wish Zach and Maddie the best of luck for what will be a fantastic experience.
