This time it wasn’t quite so far afield. The Unity World Games were held at Newark and the club’s chief instructor Lianne Jones and black belt student Jake Peppercorn both won medals.

Jones became a double world champion with Peppercorn collecting a hard-earned silver medal.

At the same time JAMA chief instructors Bethany and Rebecca Jones were exploring another discipline. They fought in their first ever Tae Kwon Do competition at the Manchester Velodrome and came away with gold medals and British titles.
