K.9 kickboxers strike gold in Scotland

Eight junior fighters from the local K.9 kickboxing gym travelled to Motherwell, Scotland, with coaches Dave Munro, Leon Docwra and Scott Sayer, to represent England in the Scottish Open International Championships.

The English team exceeded all expectations winning eight gold medals, two silver and two bronze against top Scottish and Welsh opposition in both full contact and light contact kickboxing.

Remy Sayer was probably the star of the team winning a total of five bouts, two by KO in the full contact, winning two gold medals, and completely dominating all his opponents.

Tyler Munro and Chaney Docwra did brilliantly in their first ever International event, winning hard bouts to win their respective gold and bronze medals.

2010 world champion Jade Munro had to overcome two much heavier and taller opponents to get to her final where she clinched gold. It was the best she has fought in a couple of injury-plagued years.

The whole team were outstanding and did Yarmouth, Lowestoft and the K.9 Gym proud.

Full Contact gold Medallist: Remy Sayer (11) (-30 kilos 9-11 years); Nicky McHugh (11) (-35 kilos 9-11 years); Travis Manning (13) ( -45 kilos 12-14 years).
