2018 WKC World Championships -Dublin, Ireland. This is X Martial Arts Schools 4th World Championships and was our biggest medal haul to date! We had some more experienced competitors and some who’s first World Championships. They have all worked as a TEAM, on and off the mats, they’ve made me a very proud instructor. I however cannot take all the credit, as most of you know i teach around 5% of the classes at X Martial Arts Schools.

Another special shout out to Cole Rochester who won all 4 sections! Matching Mrs Britland’s 4 golds at one world. Championships from 2016. Cole has also helped me all week co ordinating the fighters and warming them up, so a massive thank you is in order. 🙌 Thank you to all of our members, local business’ and sponsors who have helped pay for the TEAMs trip. 9 x World Titles! 🥇🥇🥇🥇🥇🥇🥇🥇🥇 2 x Silver 🥈🥈 6 x Bronze 🥉🥉🥉🥉🥉🥉 WHAT A WEEK! 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿🙅🏻‍♂️
