ULTIMATE Martial Arts Academy in Quarry Bank has two potential new stars in the making., Nine-year-old’s Amy Cook and Benjamin Jones, pictured with trainer Sean Smith, have earned their junior Muay Thai boxing black belts.

The pair have been with the academy for five years and are the first from the club to achieve the feat.

Sean said: “Amy also fought the same day after passing her grading, and won by stopping the girl in the first round - they train very hard and they love it.”
