Kickboxers from Bute helped bring a superb haul of 19 medals home to Scotland from the WKC World Karate and Kickboxing Championships in Portugal.

The Bute group’s medal haul included a silver and a bronze for island resident Denise Hooper, senior instructor with the British Chinese Kickboxing Association (BCKA) in Scotland.

“The team’s hard work and dedication to their training resulted in every student returning home with a medal,” Denise told The Buteman.

“I am very proud to lead such a dedicated team. Every student gave 110 per cent. We look forward to next year’s WKC world championship.”
