For 40 years, Winning Edge has been bringing our community the very best in Martial Arts Training. Our goal is to develop personal excellence in each one of our students.
The Martial Arts were originally aimed toward life preservation and self-defense, but today people of all ages come to us from all walks of life, each with their own reasons for wanting to train at the Winning Edge. Some want to learn self-defense, others want to compete in tournaments, some ask to become physically fit and others just want to have fun.
In light of the escalating violence towards children and the increase in child abductions, WINNING EDGE has developed a program designed to teach children safety awareness, danger avoidance and the physical skills necessary to protect themselves and afford them an opportunity of escape. Winning Edge Child Awareness and Rapid Escape provides the necessary skills children need to physically, mentally and most importantly, emotionally defend themselves from child predators. It is our sincere hope that through our program we can deter these crimes against children and pray that their personal safety never becomes an issue. All Instructors of the W.E. C.A.R.E. program are certified and have undergone specialized training in the area of child safety. They are dedicated to teaching our children how to be personally strong involving their own safety and have been chosen for their demonstrated desire to protect our youth.

This glory was well fought and he not only fought to win the medal but also won many hearts. This infant school pupil won the medals at the recent Federation of Sports Karate Championships held in Manchester. He won the medals as well as impressed the selectors of the federation.
After the game ended the federation gave him two medals and also selected him for representing the country in the world championship to be held later this year. Looking over the selection of the kid’s selection for the world championship his mom Jayne Emsley said to the press that she is proud of his kid. She also said that her child loves this sport and even at this age he was totally focused on his goal at hand. She said that he always looks to play this game and will be making sure that her son does well in the big stage. She also said that as a kid he was focussed and started practicing Karate from the age of 4.
Currently he trains in the Fight Club academy four times a week. His academy is situated in Bradford which is run by martial arts expert Keith Priestley. Mrs Emsley also stated that his son started his career in karate just to do something in the sport. He decided to take on this sport as his dad too was a part of this sport as a kid. The little kid has till date won 3 British titles and in the month of October he will be competing for the 4th one. This young kid will surely be having a great future.
Dereck Chisora as supposed to be going up against Tyson Fury for the heavyweight championship rematch. The match was supposed to be held at Excel Arena in London. However there has been a rescheduling of the match. A support bout has been announced instead by the promoter Frank Warren. This match will be held between Billy Joe Saunders and Chris Eubank Junior. Saunders will be defending his European title in this match up. The crowd is looking forward to the match as is visible from the sale of tickets. The arena shall be jam packed and the expected turn out is going to be quite huge.
Saunders and Junior have been involved in a number of brawls against one another. They have rarely missed a opportunity to hurl insults at one another. The growing enmity between the two will only be fuelled with the announcement of this match. While Saunders is a veteran and has won a number of titles at the national and international level, his opponent is a newbie. But neither of them lack in confidence. They believe that they can beat each other quite easily. The strength and agility of the two boxers will be tested to the extreme in this match. They have to outdo each other in every possible way to win the title. This is going to be an apt match for the title and thereby the crowd can be assured of a treat. Eubank has another match up against Jez Wilson before the big night. He will wish to fire all cylinders before the big day of his career. Saunders himself is sitting high on confidence at the back of a terrific win against Emanuele Blandamura. It was a one sided affair through out as the veteran demolished his opponent.
