Chesham Kickboxing & Martial Arts Academy (CKMA) and Britannia Kickboxing club of

Watford, once again joined forces to promote its annual kickboxing show at Chesham Leisure Centre on Sunday 7th March.

The combined semi-contact day show and full contact night show proved an enormous success with positive feedback from all attending clubs. Early plans are already being made for a follow up show in Chesham later this year.

The day show had a tremendous

turn out of fighters from martial arts clubs across the country and saw more than 70 back- to-back junior and adult semi contact fights over six hours. Local fighters representing CKMA included: Marcus and Jasper Horewood, Max Tovey, Mike Dorman, Athena Mazi and Paul Watts. Olli Harris opened the evening show against a fighter from the Bullring gym in Tring.

First for Lisa

Lisa Smith is training for her first ever Marathon, here she tells us why she is taking on the challenge...

I decided to apply to run the London Marathon last May, it is something which I have always aspired to (though I didn’t tell my husband Mark I had applied).

After I had made the decision to apply I

decided to try and raise funds for a charity that you don’t hear much – ‘Parkinson Disease Society’. My father in law suffered for about nine years with this disease, and I also had an aunt in Ireland who suffered with the same illness, sadly they have now both died. Training is tough and it really takes over your life. I am following a training plan that I download from the London Marathon official web site. Even though it’s the beginners plan it’s still very hard going, especially for a novice runner like myself, especially as I have knee problems so I have to be extra careful. I have not set a time to finish in, to be honest I will just be glad to see the finish line! Work collegues who have run the marathon have told me it is both an emotional and exhilarating experience. My parents and some of my friends are travelling over

from Ireland to support me on the day. I am looking forward to it despite the nerves. My mother-in-law and my two sisters Jane and Paula have been a big help in getting sponsors from their friends and EH Smiths, who I work for, have made rather a large donation which I am very grateful for.
