Only ONE Word...
AWESOME!


Only one word can describe this years IKF North American Classic Amateur Kickboxing Tournament... AWESOME! It was an outstanding weekend of great kickboxing!

As IKF Ambassador Brooks Mason explained two years ago,
On Any Given Sunday
"The saying in football is that on any given Sunday any team can win. The champions of our sport will have no easy time at the IKF Championships as the best of the best come to meet the challenge. Fighters rise to the task when faced with great talent and our returning champions surely provide that. Don't hand out the belts quite yet as new talent will certainly emerge and increase the field of fighters to watch. I am positive there will be great fights for all the belts and we will enjoy the best tournament in America. Looking forward to seeing all of you."
Uncle Brooks

However, this year, due to some personal reasons, Brooks was unable to make it, and he was truly missed by us all. And Brooks, you missed a Great Show! With a total of 240 fighters in attendance, it will go down on record as the LARGEST Amateur Kickboxing Tournament ever held in North America. But enough of the talk. We will save the stories for later, so for now, here are the complete results of this years 2005 IKF North American Classic Amateur Kickboxing Championships...


63 JUNIOR BOYS
3 REGISTERED JUNIOR BOYS DID NOT FIGHT


32 JUNIOR GIRLS
ALL REGISTERED JUNIOR GIRLS SHOWED UP AND FOUGHT


28 ADULT WOMEN
1 REGISTERED WOMAN DID NOT SHOW TO FIGHT


117 ADULT MEN
7 REGISTERED ADULT MEN DID NOT SHOW

All the Adult Women and Junior Girls showed up! The 240 fighters who will be "Walking the Walk" tomorrow shattered the old Tournament record of 220 set last year in Orlando. If your not here, your missing the

Mid-West Fight Fest
July 29th 2005
By Chuck Wolfe, ISCF/IKF Midwest Representative


On Friday July 29th Shamrock and Blue Corner Promotions packed the Clarion Hotel and Grand Ballroom to the hilt with people and lots of great action inside the ring. This was one of the best events for Kickboxing and MMA that I have seen here in Kansas City in a long long time. There were 11 fights, 7 were ISCF MMA and 4 were IKF Kickboxing. All of them kept the 1000+ fans very well entertained. Congratulations to Jesse Finney /Shamrock and Ben Nogueras /Blue Corner on a great event.

It was a record night for attendance and liquor sales for the hotel that has been doing fights sense 1993. The results are as follows:


  1. ISCF MMA Light Heavyweight
    Damien Salazar
    of Liberty, MO. vs Kenny Allen of Rock Island IL.
    This one was very close with Allen winning 29 to 28 on all judges cards.

  2. ISCF MMA Welterweight
    Parker Southworth
    of Kearney, MO. vs Bryant Hill of Overland Park, KS.
    This one did not take to long for Parker to win by tap out :45 of the first round.

  3. Full Contact Rules Kickboxing, Super Middleweight: Rob DeTray of Independence, MO. vs Jeff Porter of Little Rock AK.
    DeTray won the first round 10-8 with a right hand knock down but had a eye injury that kept him from answering the bell for round two. Porter by TKO at the start of the 2nd round.

  4. ISCF MMA Middleweight
    Seben Costner
    of Overland Park KS. vs Dustin Phillips of Blue Springs, MO.
    Phillips wins big with a TKO at 2:30 of the first round.

  5. Muay Thai Heavyweight: Rodger Jackson of Overland Park KS. vs Evan Mitchell Kansas City, MO.
    This fight went the distance but was very one sided as Jackson won every round on all judges cards 30-27 taking the win by Unanimous Decision.

  6. ISCF MMA Middleweight
    David Hancock
    of Overland Park KS. vs L.C. Davis of Kansas City, MO.
    Davis was fast and clean with his fists and his grappling. He scored a TKO at 1:30 of the 2nd round.

  7. ISCF MMA Light Heavyweight: Derrick Spain of Overland Park, KS. vs Josh Johnson of Kansas City, MO.
    After a close first round, Johnson jumped all over Spain earning a win by TKO at :57 of round 2.

  8. ISCF MMA Super Heavyweight: Cody Harris of Kearney MO. vs. Thad Owens of Overland Park KS.
    Owens wins by Tap Out at 2:25 of the first round.

  9. Full Contact Rules Kickboxing, Light Middleweight
    Melvin Hartly
    of Kansas City North vs William Griffin of Little Rock, AK.
    Hartley knocked Griffin down at the end of round one but Griffin beat the count. Hartley pounded on Griffin to start round 2 forcing the referee Kevin Engle to stop this one. Hartley by TKO at :54 of the 2nd round.

  10. ISCF MMA Light Heavyweight
    Tommy Elben
    of Overland Park KS. vs. James Bunch of Kansas City, MO.
    Bunch started fast but Elben caught up fast winning by Tap Out at 2:24 of the first round.

  11. ISCF MMA Heavyweight
    John Cornett
    of Overland Park KS. vs. Jeramy Smith of Kansas City, MO.
    Smith did little to stop Cornett who looked impressive in stopping Smith by TKO at 2:50 of the first round.

I can't hardly wait for the next show here in K.C. on Sept. 16th. featuring number 1 ISCF Ranked Bobby Volker

THURSDAY, August 4th, 2005, AT 6:30 PM, PT


"TWO"
Fighter Brackets


They are the nightmare and worry of every fighter and trainer in the Tournament, not to mention the most expensive and controversial of the entire event. They are a nightmare because every fighter and trainer in a TWO Fighter bracket will be worried they will lose their opponent until they step in the ring with him and her. If they drop out between now and fight time, it leaves the other fighter very little time to make a change, if any. Worse yet will be the fighter and trainer who pay their way to the "SHOW" only to find out their opponent was a "NO SHOW" without any prior notice.

There will be NO Walkover Champions this year. Sure, we said it last year and made some awards, but this year it's for real. If a fighter becomes the only fighter in their bracket by end of weigh-ins, they won't go home with anything.

For this reason, we are asking ALL the fighters who are currently in TWO Fighter brackets and their trainers to consider moving to another bracket to assure there will be someone across from them in the ring come Championship Sunday.

We won't be adding any more divisions now either because to do so will be a cost of over $400 per division. There is a rush/late fee for another belt, and not to mention the addition of other awards and logistics here. ALL fighters who are by themselves in a weightclass now need to determine WHERE they will move to, if they want to move at all. If possible, also call your opponents trainer and make sure they are OK with moving to a larger bracket.

Regardless, there will still be fighters who choose to stay in their TWO fighter bracket. So, for the record, we want to remind you again, "There will be NO Walkover Champions this year." However from the looks of things, there will surly be over 60 fighters going home with some IKF Gold from the 2005 IKF North American Classic Amateur Kickboxing Tournament. Hopefully you or your fighter will be wearing one. Good Luck everyone.

Almost
SOLD OUT!

Remember, ALL fighters need to stay at the host hotel.

At registrations you will be asked for your room number and Hotel Registration confirmation. This is because in case we need to contact you for bout or schedule changes. At two of our past Tournaments we had Fighters get injured in their bout and we needed to contact their parents who were not in the venue at the time of their bouts. Also at some past tournaments we had some fighters we needed to locate due to bout changes but we could not find them in the event room or in the hotel because they were at another hotel sleeping. Due to these issues causing a lot of problems, we do not want to face such issues again. This is why this is a *MANDATORY RULE now for competitors.
(*) Except for Fighters who live in Florida.

As you should know by now the Host Hotel is the Wyndham Palace Resort And Spa in the Walt Disney World Resort. Here is the Hotel Booking info:

When you book, we strongly suggest you register for their Wyndham ByRequest It gives you Free Local Calls, Free Domestic Long Distance calls, Free High Speed Internet Access, Free Beverage of your choice In Room upon Check-in and Free Welcome Snack of your choice In Room upon Check-in.

RESULTS FROM
IKF Kickboxing Dinner Show
July 31st, 2005 - Weston Football Club Weston Super Mare England



Promotor: Stuart Davies. Weston Warriors George Katsimpas and Matt Martin both well and truly put Weston Academy of Martial Arts and Weston Warrior Kickboxing on the International map on Sunday the 31st of July. George and Matt both fought for IKF Title bouts.

The show was a small event specifically organized by Stuart Davies for George and Matt to fight for these IKF titles. The IKF had insisted that George challenge for the European title as an agreement had been made for George to Fight for the IKF World title later this year either in Spain or Scotland if George held a top class IKF Pro Belt. Stuart also wanted to showcase his other fighters champion Matt Martin and up and coming Gay Bettle.

First up from the club was Gary Bettle and he took on a more experienced fighter from Wales. The fight was a tough affair and unfortunately had to be stopped in the 2nd round as the Welsh fighter dislocated his shoulder. Gary did a great job keeping the bigger fighter under control. Gary gave away nearly a stone in weight. There will be a rematch at Fightclub 8 later this year.

IKF Amateur England Middleweight Full Contact Title
Mat Martin entered the ring to fight for the IKF English title against an undefeated fighter from King Tiger Gym Weymouth. Dan Webb is a top up and coming fighter with a great future and this fight was excellent. Matt had to change his approach for this fight and really worked his socks off to ensure a convincing win over this top young fighter. Matt worked the body shots and kicked the mandatory eight kicks per round with great effect. Matt won unanimously on points.

IKF Pro European Middleweight Full Contact Title
George Katsimpas entered the ring for his toughest fight yet for a 10 round IKF European title. Katsimpas faced Gena Tacachenco from Belarus with a fighting record of 39 fights with 37 wins. This was a major fight and Tacachenco is known to be one of the toughest and fittest fighters in the world. This was always going to be a battle from beginning to end. George only having eight fights experience and only going over 4 rounds once would need to give it all to get a result in this fight. The early part of the fight saw both fighters clash with some explosive body shots and head kicks. George had the better of the fight during the early rounds and continued to make Gena miss. In the fourth and fifth rounds things were a little closer. George had to really dig in but was doing enough not to loose the rounds. There was a major turning point in the seventh George unleashed a barrage of head punches and the referee the famous Ronnie Green stepped in and gave Gena a standing count. George continued to apply the pressure and worked really hard to ensure he did not loose his lead. The closing round Stuart Davies, George's coach, insisted he pressured the Belarusian and win the last round. George came out guns blazing and really let Gena know who the boss was. George went on to take the unanimous decision win with the congratulations and agreement from Gena's corner. Mark Woodard a professional referee and martial artist who has judged TV fights said it was the best Kickboxing fight he had ever seen. George well and truly now placed his name amongst the best fighters in the World.
