Stand Up Fighting
New York, NY, USA:
As part of NYKK Gym
continuing efforts to popularize San Shou and San Da fighting and introduce it
as a valuable compliment to the MMA athlete's training regime, we are pleased to
announce two new specialized programs. The first of these is "6 weeks to better stand up fighting"
which is the perfect program for the MMA athlete who desires a quick improvement
to their stand up skills and/or for those who want to try out San Shou/San Da
for the first time on a trial basis.
"6 weeks to better stand up
fighting" is an introductory course in San Shou/San Da as it
skills directly relate to the MMA arena. Participants will learn both how to
strike an opponent attempting to take them down and how to use striking to set
up their own takedowns. They will learn San Shou/San Da's unique takedowns and
kick catches, with awareness of how these techniques will create smooth
transitions to ground fighting for the MMA arena.
In addition, the staff of NYKK Gym is now available to design specific
short term preparation for both professional and amateur MMA athletes. If you'd
like to sharpen your stand up skills before a major event, we'll design the
appropriate program. You will have an opportunity to train with members of
championship team, the #1 San Shou/San Da team in the country. Simply contact us
with the details of how much time you have and what you are seeking to improve

Non IKF Event Results
Reported by TEAM VOODOO USA
Feb 28, 2003, San Jose
,California, USA: IKF West
Coast Muay Thai Champion Maurice Hooks (Right, Modesto, California,
USA, 8-1, trained by Gene Fields) won a unanimous decision over former
2 Time IKF National Champion
Yuen (15-3-1) in three grueling rounds of Muay Thai. The two were
toe to toe through out with no let up with the decision going to Hooks
who kept the pressure on.
The fans were totality excited while on the same show IKF Pro "Full Contact Rules"
Middleweight World Champion Dave Marinoble (Right - Roseville, CA,
USA, 17-1-2 with 8 wins by KO/TKO) faced off for a rematch with IKF Pro "San Shou" Middleweight
World Champion Rudy Ott (Left - San Jose, CA, USA, 20-3 with 5 wins
by KO/TKO) of their August
31st event in Redding California, USA. In Redding, Ott won
the IKF Pro San Shou Middleweight World
Title by unanimous decision, 49-46, 48-47 and 48-47.
This time, Marinoble revenged his loss in this Pro
San Shou bout.
Marinoble changed his game plan focusing more on scoring with kicks and
punches instead of throws. Stamina which seemed to be what Marinoble was
lacking before proved to be a key factor in this bout. Ott was
overwhelmed by the different approach Marinoble took which came from
several factors. Keeping the pressure on through the entire 5 rounds, using more
balance, control and not getting thrown made the difference in the end.
This bout was fought with sheer blood, guts and determination
of both fighters who both continued to again be Champions both in and out of
the ring! In the end, Marinoble prevailed with a unanimous
decision. With a win each now, do we hear the cry for a "Rematch"
and the title on the line this time? Who knows, but regardless, these two are
TRUE IKF CHAMPIONS! Here are the other
