While some people were just lounging in the sun and taking things easy at the weekend a team of five from Hastings Kickboxing Academy decided to get their kicks in a different way.
Ollie Lockwood, Jade Sargent, Sophie North, Scott Pells and Harvey Baker under the watchful eye of HKA chief instructor Carl Denne headed to Fawley, near Henley-on-Thames to take part in the London West Tough Mudder event.
Tough Mudder combines a gruelling 12 mile cross country course with a range of obstacles to climb over, scramble through or immerse yourself in, Carl says: “It was my first ever Tough Mudder, I’m really not a running person so to complete 12 miles was a huge achievement for me.”
The HKA team saw the event as ‘just another training opportunity’ and for Sophie who recently underwent shoulder surgery the event was a very special test that she came through with flying colours.
