Young MMA Champion Joe Seddon Takes The Fight  From Wigan To Rome

At Westwood Moor Group, we know that the stars of tomorrow are the youngsters pursuing their dreams today and we’re always happy to be able to help talented local youngsters achieve their dreams.

So when we found out that Joe Seddon, a promising Wigan based teen with a passion for the martial arts had been to selected to represent England and was getting ready to travel to Rome to compete in the IMMAF World Championships in August, we (temporarily) put all thoughts of car and van hire aside and were delighted to get behind him.

What Does it Take To Make a Champion?

All the natural talent n the World will only take you so far. Any of us who remember the show ‘Record Breakers’, will recall that what you really need in ‘Dedication’. Fortunately, young Joe Seddon is as dedicated as they come. Joe’s Dad Lee proudly told us how he trains for 2-3 hours, 6 day a week to develop his skills. His training is backed up by a healthy diet tailored to maximise performance with regular sports physiotherapy to keep him in peak condition. Joe manages to balance his incredible training regime with his studies at Standish Community High School, as well as finding time to socialise with his friends.

Joe’s Martial Arts journey started at just 5 years old where he took up Freestyle Wrestling and has since achieved National Chanpion status four times as part of the National Talent Squad. He’s been named Northwest ABA Boxing Champion, twice been the National BJJ Champion and a runner up in European titles too.

It is Joe’s MMA talents which have seen him selected to represent England however and he currently stands undefeated with 4 wins to his credit and no losses.

In addition to his his Dad, Joe is ably supported by Ste Nightingale, his MMA coach at Reps MMA in Preston and by Oleg Druzhynets who trains Joe in Wrestling at the City of Manchester Wrestling Club.

Joe Seddon – Wigan’s Own Gladiator

The Coliseum is one of the best know landmarks in Rome, which, in the days of the Roman Empire played host to Gladiatorial combat, in which proud warriors faced off against one another for honour and glory. It’s fitting then, that the IMMAF World titles are being held in the same City and we were delighted to be able to contribute towards Joe’s bid for glory of his own on the World stage. Joe is pictured here being presented with a £500 cheque  from Westwood by our General Manager Kate Close and our Finance Director Laura Edwards.

On behalf of Westwood Motor Group, we’d like to wish Joe, Wigan’s finest, the best of luck!

I needed to hire a car for a week and remembered the excellent service I had from Westwood a couple of years ago when I hired a van from them to move house. The only thing that’s changed since then is the service is even better. From my initial phone call to dropping the vehicle off the service was smooth, professional and warmly helpful.

I would recommend Westwood to anyone looking to rent a van or car. Great service at a very competitive price all done with a smile. I’ve followed my advice and booked a car for a future trip.
