IKF/PKB divisions will be
By Johnny Davis- President
of IKF Point Kickboxing
It's been approx. nine years since I produced my version of semi contact Kickboxing called IKF Point Kickboxing©. We now have thriving circuits in California , Florida , Iran and North Carolina and forming circuits in areas like, New York and Kenya to name a few. This division was new to many here in the US but has been going on for years in areas like the United Kingdom etc. What we did was coin and copyrighted a term that really fit what we were doing and why perhaps it comes off ones lips as second nature. Point .came from all the years of point karate fights I did but also means the fights are judged only on a 10 point must system, continuous fighting and NO KNOCKOUTS ALLOWED. Kickboxing meaning - it incorporates the main three styles of kickboxing- Hi, low kick and Muay Thai Kickboxing. We have been committed to keeping our fighters safe while having the most fun in a fair environment and this treatment of all competitors and spectators will continue as we march forward.
IKF Point Kickboxing since its inception has produced quality, better skilled kickboxers and indeed serves as one of the leading incubators to rebuild the sport of kickboxing. Young fighters like, Katrina " The Storm" Nahe, who started IKF/PKB fights as early as six years old and has since won two junior IKF World Classic title and a regional title in Full Contact fighting. So many others like, Daniel Hodges, Jon Pryor, Sean Cronin, Gary Grant just to name a few in the State of California started in IKF Point Kickboxing and now pursuing full contact fights with better honed skills and confidence than those who did not start in the IKF/PKB incubator process.
This year, on Tues. December 28th, 2010, IKF Point Kickboxing divisions will be a part of the largest martial arts tournament in the US if not the world. Yes, through a lot of hard work and rejections, IKF Point Kickboxing is finally getting its shot on the main stage of martial arts by being a part of the Super Grand World Games 2010 held this and next year in Sacramento, CA from Dec. 26th to Jan. 31st, 2010. Yes, its ironic that it will be held at the very same place I already do my IKF Muay Thai Kickboxing Full Contact shows. I guess you can just call it hard work and fate! :) There are so many that can take some credit for success of the IKF/PKB over the years. Although, I'm careful about name dropping, I feel I would be remiss if I did not thank a couple people that I know were directly involved in this grand step forward. First, IFS / IKF CEO Steve Fossum, who believed in the concept and agreed to join in with me to give it the worldwide appeal by sanctioning all events.
There is also Mr. Dennis Guila, of Antioch, CA who brought his club to our very first event back in 2002 at the Evergreen Community College in San Jose, CA and supported the tournaments for many years.
Mr. Sean Griffin of Indian Trail, NC deserves thanks for being the first IKFPKB Representative and promoters outside of the State of California where the IKFPKB was originated. To this day, he has continued to promote events in that area with constant growth.
Thanks also goes to Rubi Navarro and Carlos Navarro of San Francisco, CA for their contributions to its growth. A special thanks to Mr. Ray Delgado, who was the first major karate tournament promoter to step to the plate and allow us to come into his event. Mr. Delgaldo's karate tournament host several hundred martial artist and being in his event began to show others the vital role IKFPKB could play in their events. As of late though, Mr. Jordan Pallen President and Mr. Tim Calvin Vice President of the AMAPA Group based in Northern, CA have really been very active pushing the concept and name of IKFPKB to their group and others like CEO of the NBL and SKIL organizations and promoter of The Super Grand World Games Mr. Boice Liddell.
A special thanks to all new leagues that are signing on like the California Black Belt League ( CBBL) owned by the Merefuentas Brothers in the Modesto, CA area and new comers Premier Martial Arts, who have schools in many states across the country, every State Representative, trainer, fighter, spectator or judge that has come out and assisted with an IKF Point Kickboxing event...THANK YOU! Additionally, the work of Jerry Mendez and Daniel Pineda in Florida can not go un-noticed as they have had several events in that area. Jerry Mendez is currently working on starting an IKFPKB league in New York City.
After the IKFPKB inception, I began to have dreams and envisioned the day that it would be accepted on the world stage of martial arts and be a part of tournaments across the United States. Being a part of The Super Grand World Games this year, is truly an honor and an indicator that the sky is the limit for years to come as IKF Point Muay Thai / Kickboxing is introduced to more states, and countries! See the 2011 IKFPKB Calendar as it is currently forming at www.IKFPKB.com ...Hope to see you Tues. Dec. 28th, 2010 in the Capitol Room of the Doubletree Hotel in Sacramento! Forward March!

Kickboxing Returns To
On MLK Weekend...Doubletree Hotel!
Plus, Adds New Fight Venue! Welcomes The Sacramento Heatwave Basketball Team & Inferno Dancers!
AK Promotions posted their first date for their IKF Muay Thai Kickboxing Championship fights with the California Athletic Commission to be on Sunday, January 16th, 2011 at the Doubletree Hotel in Sacramento, California. The three day Holiday weekend celebrated as Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. birthday is an excellent weekend to host such an exciting sporting event for those in the area looking for something to do with the extra time. In the past year, these events have witnessed packed houses in the Grand Ballroom of the Doubletree Hotel and have gotten rave reviews from spectators as a must see event! Some of the best Kickboxers in the State fight on this show and with great action, music, lights, cameras, etc... It's like Las Vegas in Sactown!
Local champions will headline the fight card featuring.. newly crowned IKF Welterweight Muay Thai Champion Daniel "Hitman" Hodges of Rocklin, California will be stepping up to fight for the IKF West Coast Title taking on undefeated contender Anthony Gonzales of Dublin, California.
Additionally, IKF United States Champion Jon "The Hawk" Pryor of Sacramento, Champion will defend his title against tough Josh Kretchmann of Elk Grove, California and Plus, headlining the show will be the conclusion of the IKF United States Super Heavyweight Championship elimination tournament between 265lbs Manny 'Macho Man' Mancha of Elk Grove by way of Fresno, California taking on 250lb John Hurny of Dublin, California.
Both fighters ended their last bouts on October 8th, 2010 in one round with spectacular knockouts! Hurny scored a huge overhand right to KO, 6'8" Xavier Vigney of Vallejo, California and Mancha took out Hugo Dominguez of Patterson, California in only 14 seconds of the first round with a huge kick to the head!
Another deal has been confirmed with AK Promotions and local Strikes Entertainment Center in conjunction with Coaches Sports Bar (Below) of Rocklin, California and Elk Grove, California. AK Promotions will be promoting a series of smaller events at these well equipped facilities complete with state of the art lighting, sound, full bars, restaurants, bowling, arcades, rock climbing and large screens throughout the entire facility.
Coaches Sports Bar's quaint atmosphere will provide a perfect fight night for any sports fan! Coaches Sports Bar is the closest thing to a Las Vegas Casino short of being at an actual casino. The first show at Coaches Sports Bar will be held on Friday, March 11th, 2011 at their Rocklin, California facility located at 5681 Lonetree Blvd. in Rocklin, California.
However, due to the size of the venues, those interested in attending will need to purchase their tickets as soon as they go on sale or risk the high probability of the event selling out because of the large following for Kickboxing and AK Promotions events in the area.
Although these shows will be in smaller venues, they will not be scaled down in quality as they will have some of the best fighters in the sport on the card with great food, drinks and entertainment! As a backup to selling out the venue, there will be an overflow party room where fight fans can... for a cheaper price, see the fights on huge wall to wall projected screens... complete with table, chairs, food and drink service. Additionally, you will have to be 21 or over to the attend these exciting fights as it stands right now.
AK Promotions also announced that the exciting Sacramento Heatwaves Pro Basketball team and their Inferno Dancers (Below) will also be at the January 16th event at the Doubletree. Players will be on hand to meet and greet the fight fans and the dancers will entertain the crowd throughout the evening between the exciting fights.
For the first half of the year, AK Promotions is planning an exciting fight season for fans to enjoy the great sport of IKF Muay Thai Kickboxing. Kickboxing is one of the greatest contact sports on the planet! AKP is determined to show the world why Kickboxing deserves to stand beside other contact sports and is always seeking sponsorship partners.
AK Promotions is also pleased to announce the continued support of Markstein Beverage distributors of Budweiser Beer of Sacramento, California for 2011.
