ELY fighters from the Mark Farnham School brought home 10 titles from the TAGB Midlands Championships held in Kettering late last month.

There were 15 fighting areas running throughout the day with more than 800 competitors taking part in pattern, sparring, team sparring and black belt destruction events.

Of the Ely pupils competing on the day, eight fighters brought home a total of 10 awards.

Ely pupils will now turn their attentions to the world championships, which take place in July, in Coventry.
