Eight students from Epic Martial Arts have been selected by Team GB for the WAKO World Championships in Italy.

Epic Martial Arts are delighted to announce that eight of its fighters have been selected for Team GB to take part in the WAKO World Championships in Italy in September.

This is a huge honour and achievement for all the fighters and for the club, to have a record number of selections.

Those selected to go to Venice between September 16-23 are: Alex Fellender-Evans, aged 11, Harvey Tyler (11), George Sherlock (12), Tyrese Redgers (12), Ellie Doyle (13), Harrison Doyle (13), Katie Williams (14) and Kameron Doyle (17).

Head coach Andy Cleeves said: “I am extremely proud of all the youngsters who have been selected, it’s testament to the hard work, perseverance and dedication they put in, week in, week out.

“Selection though is only the beginning and the real hard work starts now, in preparing them to fight at their peak, at the WAKO World Championships.”

Club captain, five-time GB team member and reigning world champion Kam Doyle, said: “I cannot wait to represent my country at the world championships, alongside so many of my teammates. I’m very dedicated and cannot wait to get pushed to my maximum potential by our head coach.”

With one reigning world champion and two reigning European champions among those selected, the future is looking very bright for the club and these talented youngsters.

Epic Martial Arts would like to thank our club sponsor Mark Stallard from Safety Horizon (South West).
