Three Midlothian kickboxers take on the world this week at the Kickboxing World Championships in Tuscany, Italy.
John Young (24), Laura Wallace (26) and Bob Law (34) (pictured above) from Raptors Kickboxing Club in Loanhead have done bag packing, sponsored walks, fight nights and other activities to raise the £850 they each needed to join thousands of competitors from 90 countries.
Laura said: “I’m as ready as I can be. We are really excited, it will be a great experience. With it being my first major competition I’m not expecting anything, just to do my best and see what happens.”
