Today's Quote...
“Somebody should tell us, right at the start of our lives, that we are dying. Then we might live life to the limit, every minute of every day. Do it! I say. Whatever you want to do, do it now! There are only so many tomorrows.”
Pope Paul VI

IKF World Champion
Shannon "The Cannon" Hudson
Welcomes Success In His Fitness Kickboxing Franchise
"9 ROUNDS"

9Round Opens Milestone 450th Location, Eyes 1,000 Clubs by 2019

Some Article Info From
From Franchising.com

9Round, the world's fastest-growing kickboxing gym franchise, has opened its 450th location. Located in the Detroit Metro area, the new gym marks a significant milestone for the brand and is a reflection of the company's immense growth since its inception in 2008.

"Throughout the country, more and more consumers are continuing to embrace new workout experiences, and we know our commitment to providing a championship-caliber kickboxing option has been a fundamental component to our accelerated momentum and ongoing expansion,"
said 9Round co-founder Shannon Hudson.

"In less than 10 years, we've grown from a small regional chain to an international, award-winning brand and I couldn't be more proud of our franchisees and corporate support team for driving this success."

Today, there are 450 9Round clubs open and operating throughout 40 states and nine countries. More than half of those clubs have opened in the last 24 months alone, including the company's first locations in Australia, Japan, Jordan, Mexico, New Zealand, Saudi Arabia and the United Kingdom.

With hundreds of additional clubs in various stages of development around the world, and a rapidly growing number of entrepreneurs looking to join the 9Round family, company plans call for having a total of 1,000 locations by the end of 2018.

"Yes, we're talking about more than doubling our international footprint. That means the next couple of years are going to be a grind. Bring it on,"
said Hudson.
"When I wanted to win a world kickboxing title, I imagined having the belt around my waist. I could feel the weight of the gold on my hips. The feeling part is the secret. If you're going to dream, dream big."

It shares how he and wife, Heather used every penny they could find to turn an idea for a fitness center into a profitable business with one hundred locations in only five years.

The Fight Game Can Be Very Harsh
By IKF Pro World Champion Damien Trainor

Damien's Page Of This Article - Click Here.

The dust has finally settled on UFC 207 and just as it was on her last outing, the main focus surrounding the event is Ronda Rousey's defeat. I've been meaning to write a blog on this subject for awhile now, not about Rousey's loss specifically but about how inhospitable the fight game can be.

At some point in your career this is going to be a very harsh environment to be around, not only due to your body taking punishment and the rigorous training regimes you'll have put yourself through, but the realization that you can be revered and admired by people one minute and then quickly criticized, slandered and then forgotten by these very same people.

How you deal with this is what will ultimately make or break you.

Only the other day I shared a post about Ricky Hatton and how he had to deal with depression after his defeats against Mayweather and Pacquiao. In the link he discusses how he contemplated suicide which is something Rousey touched on after her first defeat.

Both of these athletes were constantly put in a positive light by the media and supporters. Such was the hype and reverence that any negative comments (If any) were barely noticeable.

So in my opinion they were not mentally equipped to deal with what follows after a loss, especially at the level they were at and with the power that social media has now. Everybody has a voice and an opinion whether it be an educated one or not but It's only fairly recently that people have the power to express that opinion to millions. If you are the topic at hand then you need to be ready to receive the backlash of negative feedback and criticism that inevitably comes as readily as the support.

My advice is to simply not read it or stew over it. At times I've been guilty of responding online to some of the trolls when in reality it would have been far better to just ignore them and not rise to the bait. Just listen to the opinions of those who you respect and hold dear as they are the ones who are truly looking out for your best interests.

It's also important that you're not surrounded by 'yes' men. If you want to improve and grow as an athlete then constructive criticism and some harsh truths are occasionally needed, unfortunately it seems this is something Rousey was lacking from her team and now she's the one that will suffer the impact of a fall from such a high pedestal.

The venomous comments you see online can hurt at times but that's only your ego so let it slide, you'll have a much more peaceful life. Also some of the people you thought were friends will vanish and cling to the next person they consider a star. These people think it heightens their own reputation to be around people at the top of their game very much like those who only ever support the football team at the top of the division. They're not friends and never were so brush it off and move on.

None of the above is important and a loss does not mean the end of a career but merely a chance to sit back and reflect on what went wrong and how to improve.

The fight game is definitely not all peaches and cream but as long you stay focused, ignore the negativity and enjoy what you're doing then you'll have a happy ending when it's done and dusted.

IKF's Addition, for EVERYONE...

"It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat."
Theodore Roosevelt
