IMG 7001

Daniils Kalinins, one of our Year 11 2017 leaver, has just become the ICO, 13-17, 80-85kg, World Kickboxing Champion!

Daniils competed in the world championship, on the 20th of October, at the North Solihull Sports centre in Birmingham to earn his Gold medal! A total of seventeen countries had entered the competition, with all ranges of ages and weights.

Over two thousand medals were awarded at the championships and for Daniils to earn his gold medal, he had to train hard and focus on his fights.

Daniils will be competing in the championship again next year and will also train with England, to improve his skills even more!

Everyone here at the Academy are very proud of what he has achieved and we wish him all the best for the future!
