Junction 18 Kickboxing Club continues to go from strength to strength, as shown when it held its first in club kickboxing competition where an impressive 27 students competed. The competition was run and judged in a fair and disciplined manner, however the main factor on the day was for all fighters to enjoy the day and learn from it.
Within junction 18 there are students of different levels, from those who have experience and students who are new to the sport of kickboxing and have only trained for a few weeks. This was not an issue on the day as all students enjoyed themselves and fought extremely well.
The competitors who fought were Diarmuid O’Neill , Enda O’Neill, Calum Rice, Charlie Reynolds, Conor McGuinness, Ben Marmion, Gareth O’Hare, Darragh Quinn, Gabriel Rice, Oisin Carroll, Daisy Connolly, Oliver Hall, Dulata O’Neill, Johnny Reynolds, Cathal Trianor, Brendan Leggett, Joshua McGuinness, Jake Connolly, Katlyn Rogers, Louise McShane, Aoibheann Duffy, Caola Trainor, Charlotte Rogers, Kayleigh Clarke, Ben Hall, Sleibhin O’Neill and Jack Ruane.
Fighters were cheered on and encouraged by parents, fellow club members and their families.
Fitness instructor Ciaran McArdle (0872800883) and kickboxing instructor Bernard Duffy are extremely proud of the their students and happy with their improvement since starting kickboxing.
