Titles and medals from World Championships in Italy
Rugby based G Force Martial Arts have returned from the WKC World Championships in Italy with a collection of world titles to show for all their hard work, determination and training.
Instructor Gordon Burcham, has been pushing his team through an intensive daily training regime, to ensure they can perform to the absolute best of their ability when it really counts.
Gordon said: “I can’t express how proud I am of all the achievements of this incredible team. Incredible as for many this was their first World Championships. Not just the results, but also some of the performances were breathtaking, fighting world-class athletes; some multi world champions themselves and pushing them to the limits.
“What a great experience for everyone. They have done themselves, myself, and the whole country proud and, of course, put their club on the map, with G Force as one of the top sport martial arts clubs in the world . What a true honour!”
