STUDENTS from Jesters Mixed Martial Arts Club in Matlock travelled to Birmingham to take part in the international combat organisation British open championships.

The club entered two of its more experienced competitors into the contest and both were rewarded for their efforts with medals.

Joe Firth, aged 16, and Emma Erskine, also 16, worked their way through a day of fights, making it through to the finals, where Joe won bronze and Emma won gold.

The competition was tough with some of the best clubs from all over the country taking part but yet again Jesters MMA tasted success in competition.

Anyone interested in training at the family friendly club, which is based behind John Hadfield House on Dale Road in Matlock, should call 07825 876177.
