WAMA, a kickboxing club based at the Health Club in Clevedon, had great results at the WUMA world open series held in Worcester.

Adam Read, having trained hard all year and entering and being successful at other tournaments held throughout the year, earned a well deserved place in 95kg light continuous section.. His experienced Polish opponent, weighing in at the full 95kg and also having a height and reach advantage, made things difficult for the Clevedon fighter.

Read showed excellent discipline and composure throughout his fight as his opponent rained a heavy barrage of punches and kicks. He had to dig deep and showed he also had some excellent kicking and punching combinations under his belt in the end, out-boxing and kicking his opponent. This was an excellent test for Read who showed he has the potential to become a great fighter, in the end winning over his opponent and taking the world title in his section.

Instructor of the Clevedon club Ian Simpson is proud of Adam's result and is looking forward to seeing more from the local fighter next year. Also obtaining a terrific result was Gemma Baker who trains with the Clevedon and Weston club.
