Peterborough NCKA fighters were on fire at their national championships in Corby.

The city club delivered no fewer than 18 national titles and won podium places in virtually every category they contested.

Jaden Harris and Eddy Paddock won a hat-trick of titles apiece, while Leon Gold, Kelsey Lock and Adam Lock were double champions.

Coach Andy Whitwell was thrilled with the efforts of his super-talented group, but he was particularly pleased with his ‘Elite’ fighters.

The Open Weight Elite was created for any adult fighter and attracted a string of black and brown belt competitors as well as well as European and World championship entrants.

There was such a large entry, the event was split in two (over 75kg and under 75kg) and yet city fighters filled the top three places in both.

Courtney Brown pipped clubmates Zac Culpin and Karl Strange in the Elite Points over 75kg event, while Leon Gold took the top prize in the under 75kg category just ahead of Grant Brown and Zac Culpin.

Whitwell was also impressed by competition newcomer Abi Daulton and veteran Simon Munday who both had to overcome international fighters to become BCKA British champions.
