Three Bute kick-boxers travelled to Corby in Northamptonshire recently to compete in the British Chinese Kickboxing Association’s national championships - one of the biggest competitions of the year.

Jay McGroarty, Mollie Aiken and Chloe Aiken were part of the newly-formed BCKA Scotland squad and were led by newly-appointed coach James Docherty, who on a monthly basis makes the hundreds of mile round-trip to Bute to teach the young fighters.

The fighters put in a brilliant performance against some tough fighters and came back to Bute with one gold, two silvers, and two bronze. As the young team had only been training for a couple of months, this was an outstanding performance. Well done to all!
