Two students at Barnoldswick’s Phoenix Academy of MMA have won medals at WTKA tournaments.

Annie Vickers, 11, of West Craven High, won bronze in her kickboxing category, and Charlotte Smith, 12, of Park High, won silver.

This qualified them for the World Traditional Karate Association and World Kick-Boxing Association World Championships in Italy in October, where they will represent Team GB. Charlotte was runner up in the Revolution British Championships in September last year.
