Two members of Matlock’s Original Jesters have returned from the World Kickboxing Championships with five medals between them.

The event was held in Tuscany in Italy and this year it was bigger than ever, with six world governing bodies joining forces.

The 2013 England team consisted of 45 fighters, including Joss Bevan and Rachel Rose from Jesters who entered five categories between them.

After four relentless days of competition, Bevan picked up a gold, silver and bronze in his three categories and Rose achieved gold and silver in her two categories to add to England’s total of 39 gold medals alone.
