Aston Young – WRSA British kickboxing champion
Aston Young Claims British Kickboxing Crown
Year 8 student, Aston had a British title fight on Saturday 19th March in South West England.
His opponent was a very experienced Scottish fighter who weighed in slightly over the agreed weight of 43kg with Aston weighing in at 42.4kg. Both boys fought well, but on the night Aston stuck to his plan and executed it perfectly to come away as the new WRSA British kickboxing champion.
Aston has worked incredibly hard recently and dedicated himself to his sport. This is an exceptional achievement and he and his family have thanked the school for the small part they have played in his kickboxing journey. Please congratulate him when you see him around school.
Aston is part of our sports mentor group and at this rate, he will become one of our sport scholars in a matter of time.
