At the young age of 14 Emily Vallance is taking the kickboxing sport by storm. She was in Spain last month and not onty defended her world title but added to her hardware. She is also the world champ in the 15-17 year old category in kickboxing and K1 style, again with 15-17 year olds.
She will likely soon be competing for some other title as she continues to develop into quite the competitor in the sport.
I decided to visit the gym last night and catch with Emily and her coach, Rolland Bissonnette, who also coached Team Canada at the worlds in Spain.
