Lock won two gold medals and Paddock a gold and a bronze.

Their coach Andy Whitwell said: “The standard of fighting was off the scale and Eddy and Kelsey both fought absoloutely brilliantly to collect three impressive gold trophies.”

Whitwell, who has recently been awarded an honorary 6th Degree black belt for services to kickboxing, has started new sessions at Hampton Gardens School on Wednesdays (7pm - 8.30pm) where multiple world champion Leon Gold is the club instructor and he fully expects a very good club to develop there.
