The CIMAC Superleague World Cup, was held on Sunday 1st July, on an incredibly hot day in North Solihull.
Team EPiC produced some brilliant performances at a very busy, but well organised event and finished the day with 6 golds and 18 other podium finishes.
Was great to see EPiC Team Captain Kam Doyle fighting at a CIMAC again, and he very convincingly won the Junior Boys Open Weight Division. His timing and precision was a joy to watch, and was wonderful for younger members of Team EPiC to see Kam in action.
It was also a good day for Dylan Hunt, who won the Older Cadets Light Con -36kg division, beating a local rival from Gloucester’s Terror Squad for the very first time.
There were also golds for Alex Fellender-Evans (YC light con -30kg), Harvey Tyler (YC Kick Light -40kg), Sean MacDonald (9 years and under, light con) & Ellie Doyle (OC pf -45kg).
A huge well done to everybody who competed.

The first GB Point Fight Grand Slam, was held in Crawley on Sunday 17th June, organised by GB Coach Jacey Cashman, in memory of his father Tony Cashman.
It was an incredibly well organised and well run event, starting on time and running to schedule.
There were some excellent performances on the day, Head Coach, Andy Cleeves said ‘Wolfman Sean McDonald and Katie Williams’s performances really stood out, for their excellent use of technique and listening to instruction’.
In the pee wee 9 and under categories, Epic certainly shone, winning 3 out of 4 of the golds on offer. Harvey Pollard won the -24kg category, with some really hard fought performances and Sean McDonald won both the -32kg and +32kg categories. Teia Doyle and Ewan Thain also did very well in the pee wee sections.
A special mention also goes to Evie Jones, who made the big leap up from Interclub competitions to her first National competition, where she won a well deserved silver medal in the rookie girls, -46kg category.
There were also golds for Alex Fellender-Evans, YC -28kg, Ellie Doyle, OC -42kg and Matt Roberts, men’s +89kg and 10 other podium finishes.
