Ringwood mum of six Liz Ferioli-Brown fights her way to three British kickboxing titles

RINGWOOD-based kickboxer and a proud mother of six, Liz Ferioli-Brown, left her mark at the British Nationals in Nottingham by securing an impressive three British kickboxing titles and three gold medals.

The impressive showing at The WAKO British Nationals came hot on the heels of winning a gold and silver at the 2023 world championship last year.

Ferioli-Brown, 48, entered the -65kg and +65kg Continuous Divisions and the -65kg Points Division and won all three categories, taking three British titles and three gold medals.

The founder and owner of Ringwood Kickboxing Organisation, which recently moved to The Wesley Centre in Ringwood, hopes to inspire the next generation, including her children.

“Kickboxing is a fast-moving, confidence-building, fun sport”, said Liz Ferioli-Brown, whose children range in ages from four to 18. “Two of my daughters, Katrina, aged 13, and nine-year-old Jasmine, entered their first British Championships with me in Nottingham.

“Katrina is moving into larger competitions now, and we were looking to build her confidence in fighting top-level fighters, and she made the podium with a bronze medal – I was blown away.

“Jasmine had to go up an age and weight category and fought like a warrior. Against a strong kicker, she placed her arms in a tight guard as a shield and got in the first few points. It was incredible to watch.”
