Brothers Jack and Tommy Purdy from Mamba Martial Arts both added to their trophy collections when they became ICO (International Combat Organisation) national champions at Risby.

The Ipswich kickboxing duo both have titles to their names but put in tremendous performances, dominating their opponents, and adding to their silverware.

Tommy, 11, was required to fight five, one minute rounds, while Jack, 13, fought five, one-and-a-half minute rounds.,

Team-mates Kye Devereux, seven and Kiera Devereux, 12, also competed and went the distance in their fights, but were unlucky to miss out on titles.
