Jesters Mixed Martial Arts Club in Matlock was represented by 16-year-old Highfields school student Emma Erskine when she travelled to Germany over the half term holiday to represent her country in the International Combat Organisation’s World Light Contact Kickboxing Competition.
Emma entered two weight catorgories on the day which were -55kg and -60 kg to give herself every opportunity of winning a medal.
She found herself in the final of both categories and had a terrific day, all her hard work and months of training and preparation paying off when she won silver in each category.
All of her coaches and fellow students were extremely proud of Emma’s achievement, which they feel is a credit to both herself and the club.
Jesters Mixed Martial Arts Club is based on Dale Road in Matlock, situated behind John Hadfield House. Anyone interested in joining the club at competiton level or simply just for fun and fitness on all levels, can contact head coach Mark Ball on 07825 876177.
