The up-and-coming kickboxers have tasted success a recent tournament held in Peterborough.

For most of the group it was also their first ever competitive bouts.

The Zen youngsters all came in the top three positions in their age and weight categories, as well as winning their team fights, some against much more experienced opposition.

This was enough to mean Zen left the event on top of the overall points table, meaning they were named club winners.

From left to right are competitors Taylor Bemrose, Kelton Robinson, Zane Miller, Jevon Teft, Ellie Callaghan, Tyler Robinson, Jack Sylvester and Kobi Barwick.

Not pictured is Ciona Miller.

The Zen club meet at Kirton and are coached by Jason Smalley - who came third at last year’s ISKA World Championships - and Dave Trotter.
