Alyssa Bristow is fighting fit after winning her first kickboxing bout.

Blessed Trinity Year Seven student Alyssa (12) has been a member of Dragons Kickboxing Club on Accrington Road for around 18 months after going with her cousin to try it out.

“I have been going five times a week since then and I had my first fight recently at Mount Carmel in Accrington,” said Alyssa. “I was really nervous before it but they stopped it before the end of the second round so I was pleased to win.”
