Thomas joined three years ago and has started competing and winning competitions. Evan has been training since the age of four and has won two Gold medals and a Silver at Worlds, and a Gold Team medal. He competed in the under-16 category in Manchester and has also fought in Ireland, Wales, Portugal and Northern Ireland.

Evan said: "Kickboxing is a great sport for fun, self defence and fitness. We both really enjoy competing for our club."
