City martial arts star Lianne Jones has just taken her world title haul for 2017 to a super six.

The chief instructor at Peterborough’s JAMA Kickboxing club was in action at the ICO (International Combat Organistion) World Championships in Birmingham over the weekend and returned with a fabulous four more world championship titles.

Competing against martial artists from 20 other different countries, including as far away as Brazil and New Zealand, and fighting over two-minute rounds, Jones won all four women’s semi-contact categories she was eligible to enter.

This impressive four-timer came hot on the heels of a double title win at the Unity World Games in September.

Lianne, her sister and fellow JAMA instructor Bethany Jones and JAMA black belt student Elizabeth Carter were all in medal-winning form at the ISKA National Championship in Birmingham a fortnight ago.

Lianne led the way with two golds and two silvers in semi-contact and light contact categories while Carter earned a silver in semi-contact and a bronze in her Kata class.

Bethany, who is also a multiple world champion and a recently crowned national Tae Kwon Do champion, is currently recovering from injury but still managed to claim the bronze medal in the semi-contact category.

All three have qualified for the ISKA World Championships to be held in Jamaica next year.
