The 2018 MF British Championships were certainly a day to remember.  It was the largest competition ever for the MF Group and the excitement, tension and standard was very high indeed.

Our intrepid team ventured to Swindon having dedicated a great deal of time and effort to their training.  Simply to enter and compete takes a great deal of courage.  All of them are winners!

We had tears, laughter, highs and lows but with over 600 competitors it was always going to be a tough day.  We put in some exceptional performances and they can all be very proud of how they performed.

Here was the team:

  • Hugo Ross-Phillips (1 x silver: Wavemaster)
  • Jack Calvert (1 x silver: Extreme Kicking)
  • John Boon (1 x silver: Forms)
  • Josh Boon
  • Evie-Sue Lewis (1 x Gold: Kick-boxing drill)
  • Millie-Rose Hinder

None of their success would be possible without the incredible dedication of our team of Instructors, families and friends who all came along to support and cheer the team on.  Thank you one and all for helping to create a superb atmosphere for everyone.

Success at the South East Championships

SE Team

On Sunday, 29th April the Matt Fiddes group held the second South-East Championships and it was wonderful to see so many students and families attending.  With more competitors this year, we knew it was going to be a fun but challenging day and our little team performed so well!

For some it was their first tournament and for others, who are more experienced, it was an opportunity to be role models and help the team through the day.  It is no exaggeration to say that we had some outstanding performances and I am so very proud of each member of the MF Kent Team.

It takes a great deal of commitment, hard work, determination and passion to perform at a Championships and I look forward to celebrating their successes in class this week:

Gold x 5, Silver x 3 & Bronze x 2

MF Kent Team:

  • Millie
  • Evie-Sue
  • Charley
  • Tsvetan
  • Simon
  • Mason
  • Jack
  • Hugo
  • Henry
  • William
  • Katie

Thank you to our wonderful team of coaches, Instructors, families and friends who all made the day go smoothly and offered so much support and enthusiasm.  It was a fantastic atmosphere and such a positive experience for everyone.

Well done MF Kent family!

A huge well done to every student who attended the recent Grading day on Sunday in Canterbury.  The entire day had such a positive and energetic atmosphere and it was wonderful to see so many amazing performances.  It was clear to see that you all worked so hard and deserve your rewards.

Grandmaster Murphy was very impressed with you all, especially our little Mighty Matts and is very much looking forward to returning later on this year.

I would like to also say a big thank you to the MF Kent family who gave up so much time to help on the day and this includes all you wonderful parents too – thank you for the day and for your continued support.

To give us time to get all the belts and certificates together we will be making belt presentations in class from Tuesday, 3rd April onward.

Congratulations to you all and I look forward to seeing you soon!
