Martial Arts World Champion!Back
Year 12 student Ruby was crowned Britain’s first ever junior WORLD champion in October at the World Association of Kickboxing Organisations (WAKO) Junior World Championships in Jesolo, Italy!
Ruby beat German opponent Maria Souliew in the -56kg final before also being crowned the best female ring fighter at the event. Earlier in the year Ruby won the English World Ring Sport Association title.
Amazingly, she has since won another world title, competing at the WKU World Championships in Wales.
S2 Martial Arts Academy in Whitstable, where Ruby trains, commented that her fantastic success has inspired many other students to train harder and achieve their best.
Hard work and talent are an unstoppable combination - Ruby has both. We wish her the very best of luck at her next event!
