Henri Burnham is looking to add a second English K1 title to the ICO title he won in Barnsley early in the year when he fights for the ISKA title in Maidstone this coming Sunday.

Todd Williams will look to collect the IKF Southern Area K1 title on Saturday November 12 at Sussex Coast College Hastings. Tickets are available, incidentally, by calling 07739 390911.

The biggest and most prestigious title opportunity for the FTG team will come when Amy Campbell contests the WBC Pro National Muay Thai title in Crawley on Saturday November 19 against European champion Jillian Corbett from Sheffield.

FTG head instructor and Martial Arts Illustrated hall of famer Andy Chambers said: "We are very fortunate to have so many wonderful people within our club and the vibe is second to none.

"We welcome anyone looking at trying something new or wanting to better their lifestyle to come and see us for a week's free training."

For more information about the four-year-old club, which is based on the Castleham Industrial Estate in St Leonards, call 07739 390911, email [email protected] or find it on Facebook.
