IKF POINT KICKBOXING




2010 IKF Point Muay Thai World Kickboxing Championship...
Successful and Growing Annually!

Orlando, Florida, USA

This past weekend in Orlando, Florida, the IKF World Classic Kickboxing Championship was the biggest ever in its 12 year history. Fighters literally came from around the world to compete in the Full Contact and the Semi Contact tournament. There were lots of thrills of victory and yes, especially this year, some agony of defeat (more in later articles). However, I think most there would agree that this was the best year ever with stiff competition and a ton of fight fans to cheer the fighters on. Again this year, the semi contact division of IKF Point Muay Thai Kickboxing was a major hit! The IKF PKB as it is called, was scheduled to start on Saturday night at 6:PM. However, due to some delays, the event didn't start until after 7:PM. All those waiting for the event were not disappointed as the action was HOT! Next year, we are working on measures to assure the start of the tournament will be as advertised as we continue to improve the event.

Kicking off the tournament was returning 2009 IKF Point Muay Thai World Classic Kickboxing champion, 8 year old Raphael Marascio of New Jersey who had another classic battle with newcomer Keelie Cargill of Oklahoma. Marascio as always was very aggressive coming in with a barrage of punches and kicks. However, Cargill held her own and fought strong though out the bout although Marascio won the bout unanimously by the judges. Fight fans witnessing this great match screamed and yelled to the top of their voices with delight!

IKF Point Kickboxing is continuing its march across the country and beyond and more people became familiar with its total potential to transform the great sport of kickboxing through its incubator process. Don't miss exciting IKF Point Muay Thai Kickboxing tournaments in your area and get on your way to taking the next step out of the gym.




Thanks to everyone who participated in this past year's IKF Point Muay Thai World Classic 2010. It was truly a great event with a growing interest. We hope that you will consider joining us for this exciting semi contact event held annually at the IKF World Classic.

For more information on IKF Point Kickboxing go to www.IKFPKB.com - Continue to review our calendar and hope to see you at the next event!

FRIDAY, JULY 16th, 2010, AT 11:55 PM/ PST

OFFICE CLOSED

Dear Fight Fans,
Due to our 12th Annual IKF World Classic Amateur Kickboxing & Muay Thai Championships in Orlando Florida The International Fight Sports offices will be closed from Saturday, July 17th until Tuesday evening, July 20th. Tuesday evening July 20th, we will have our offices set up in Orlando Florida for the Tournament. Any e-mails will also be returned after Tuesday, July 20th.

Early Saturday morning, about 1:AM, IKF President Steve Fossum and IKF Co Founder Dan Stell will be leaving IKF Headquarters in Newcastle, California for the long journey to Orlando. The two will drive to Omaha Nebraska where they will pick up IKF World Ambassador Brooks Mason for the second half of the trip. Last year Fossum made the trip alone. This year Stell and Mason wanted to see what the marathon 3,000 mile drive was like themselves. They all hope to arrive in Orlando sometime Tuesday...Unless they get sidetracked with some fight action along the way.

So WHY do they DRIVE to this event every year? Well, in 2000, the second year of the event, the shipping company lost all the tournament title belts. It was at that time when Fossum made the promise, "No fighter will ever again go home without his or her belt, and I will personally make sure all the Title belts get to the event." He's kept his promise. Starting in 2001, he has driven to every IKF Tournament ever held.

    VS Eric Kline (Woodbury, Minnesota, USA, 0-1, 163, 6, 8-9-82, Mike Pong)
    This match started off even. Eric used his height advantage and had smooth, fast hands, but Jason landed a solid right hand and continued hitting that target area without letting up. Jason ended the match in the first round with Eric unable to continue.
    Winner: Jason Benson by TKO at 2:07 of round 1.

    First round went back and forth, with lots of clinching. TJ is new to Muay Thai, but hung in with good hands, especially in the clinch position. In the second round TJs showed legendary power and hits that came out of no where, giving Tyrone 3 standing 8 counts to finish the match.
    Winner: Tyrone TJ Gibson by TKO (3 standing 8 counts) at 1:50 of round 2.

    VS Rick Klein (St. Paul, Minnesota, USA, 0-1, 143, 5'10'', 9-24-77, Mike Pong)
    The match started with an even exchange of kicks and punches. Hector continued his assault on Rick with hooks to the head, taking swift and complete domination of the match, winning by TKO in the first round.
    Winner: Hector Orozco by TKO at 1:57 of round 1.
  7. Pro FCR Cruiserweight Kickboxing

    An incredible fight between two seasoned elders of the sport who have paved the way for many new athletes. Bobby "The Warrior" dominated the first round with jabs and front kicks keeping Whitney "Windy City Warrior" on the defense. Later in the round, Bobby landed a front kick to a vulnerable area of the body. Bobby continued his relentless attack, and finished it off with the classic trademark of an experienced fighter with a spinning back kick. Whitney stayed on the mat, not coming back from the 8 count.
    Winner: Bobby "The Warrior" Anderson by KO at 1:37 of round 1.

MORE NEWS...



Muay Thai Staple
Finally Makes It To
North America...
And The IKF World Classic!

From Thailand... home of Muay Thai and some of the most extreme warriors in the world comes Namman Muay, aka Muay Thai Boxing Liniment, Thai Liniment, etc...

Generations of fighters have relied on this one product to prevent injuries and eliminate the pain that they endure from a sport who's main purpose is to use one's body to inflict punishment onto your opponent. With all natural active ingredients derived from plants of the region, Namman Muay continues to serve extreme athletes and pain suffers well from all walks of life. Now you will have what has helped the Thai people become some of the most feared fighters in the world. Thanks to Competitive Ace - www.competitiveace.com - Namman Muay's complete product line from liniment, cream, and a brand new spray formula will be readily available in North America in August 2010. Exclusively from the manufacturer in Thailand, Competitive Ace will bring the authentic Muay Thai Liniment and product line to North America in varying sizes.

What is Namman Muay
Namman Muay is an herbal liniment made from quality regional botanicals. Its main active ingredients are derived from plants of the region and are known to reduce inflammation and aid in blood circulation. The special formulation produces a product, which has a light, smooth glide upon application; it is formulated to be fast absorbing. Unlike other products, Namman Muay penetrates the body quickly and does not leave a greasy nor sticky feeling. Some products can leave you pasty for hours. In addition, the wintergreen scent also has its followers. A side benefit is that the scent is believed to open nasal passages helping to improve oxygen intake while increasing alertness.

Namman Muay serves as a warming agent to loosen and prepare the body for what's the punishment ahead and as a recovery aid. With any repetitive action coupled with force, injuries are common from contracted muscles, joints, and ligaments which block proper blood flow and oxygenation. Namman Muay helps power your performance and recovery.

Background
Still only made in Thailand, a country famous for its Muay Thai and their body oils. The current CEO is Thai and a direct descended of the founders who officially formulated it, he does have a PhD in Pharmaceuticals from USC. His father who lead the company before him was also a boxing coach and trained Thailand's first world boxing champion; 3-time flyweight Champion Pone Kingpetc. (Shown in left photo, 3-time Flyweight Champion Pone Kingpetch and his trainer Mr. Thongtos Intratat (pevious Namman Muay owner)

Throughout Thailand, Namman Muay is clearly visible in every Muay Thai gym / camp and at every fight promotion; its an integral part of their daily lives. Fighter's entire bodies are rubbed with Namman Muay after pores are open from a slight warm-up such as jumping rope. This is done at workouts and as a pre-fight procedure and regularly done afterwards as well. Stadiums in Thailand house massaging areas where fighters will have Namman Muay applied.

*A recent study indicates that regular use of herbal liniment use is an effective tool to significantly reduce pain, joint tenderness, joint swelling, mobility restriction and early morning joint stiffness. Not surprisingly, Racehorses are also known to have liniment applied to on a regular basis. As we all know, injuries can be more than the difference between comfort and discomfort, it can be the difference between successful and consistent training and winning!

What Now?
Previously only available sporadically through smuggled product from Thailand, the product will now officially enter North America with FDA registration and a translated label. The Official Brand Rep, Competitive Ace is promising consistent inventory levels, delivery in days versus weeks without the ridicules shipping fees customers have had to endure from Thailand, and fresh product with a long shelf-life maintained in adequate temperature conditions. Competitive Ace sites that many unofficial resellers selling expired product with several year old discontinued packaging. Besides having a shelf life, Namman Muay should be maintained in the appropriate temperature range.

Competitive Ace will be looking to distribute Namman Muay through a network of top martial art gyms and camps. Students will soon have the comfort of purchasing their Namman Muay supplies through their local gym / school. In cases where Namman Muay is not available in your gym, purchases will also be available online at www.CompetitiveAce.com

Customers familiar with Namman Muay will now enjoy a translated label with a product facts panel on the rear. Competitive Ace is promising delivery within days versus weeks and with product maintained within acceptable temperature ranges and with a long shelf life. In the past, customers were exposed to ordering from Asia where Ocean Freight could take 30 days, not knowing the conditions the product was warehoused nor shipped in, or if the product had expired.

Competitive Ace will have a booth at this years IKF World Classic in Orlando, Florida. Make sure to stop by their booth and visit them as we are sure they will have a long relationship with the IKF!

With so much World Classic news happening, some have been wondering about other IKF activity around the World. Rest assured, there is a lot of action going on out there, and one to take notice of is the new launch of the IKF South Pacific Team, more notably, Australia.

However, Finn has additional plans outside the IKF in Australia as he will be the first Promoter in Australia to host one of the new IAB (International Amateur Boxing) Titles on the same event. In this bout Finn will feature well known Australian Amateur boxer John Berger who will face off against an opponent yet to be confirmed. Additional bouts will be fought under ISCF MMA Sanctioning making his event a "Triple Crown" of the International Fight Sports brand.

As Finn gets things kicked off in all 3 rule styles, IKF South Pacific Representative Robert Wilesmith (Above Left) continues to build his South Pacific Team. Leading the way in New South Wales will be two individuals with vast martial arts experience. Zaya Zaya (Left) of TCB Martial Arts, - www.tcbmartialarts.com Australian MMA Sports is also the Vice President of the Australian Federation of Pankration Athlima. Zaya has over 16 years of Martial Arts experience. He is a 5th Degree Black Belt TCB Martial Arts, a 4th Degree Red Sash CWKD Kung Fu and a 2nd Degree Black Belt in Pankration.

Both have been appointed Australian Representative in the State of NSW for IKF Kickboxing, ISCF MMA and IAB Boxing.

"Fighting For Those Who Fight For US!"
June 26th, 2010 - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA



In 2005, Minnesotan Eugene Sit founded the Minnesotans' Military Appreciation Fund - www.thankmntroops.org (MMAF) to simply say "Thanks" to Minnesota service members. To date, the MMAF has raised over 10 million dollars and has given out over 10,000 grants totaling over 6.5 million dollars to Minnesota's heroes. In late 2009, promoter Jon Lewis (Right) decided to honor those who have long honored us by producing an event unlike any the kickboxing world has ever seen, "Fighting for those who fight for us!" Was created to honor and pay tribute to Minnesotans' who have sacrificed so much for us. Attending the event were 4 of Minnesota's heroes:

Here are the results to the nights fight Action!

  1. Amateur FCR Kickboxing - 3 Rounds
    Tom Rush, (Forest Lake, Minnesota, USA, 2-0, 197, 6' 1, 7-23-80, Heath Fonnest, North Brach Kickboxing)
    VS Tim Beseth, (Cambridge, Minnesota, USA, 0-1, 195, 6' 2, 7-14-80, Jimmie Johnson, CMMA, Cambridge Mixed Martial Arts)
    Referee: Chris Cichon
    Judges: Bill Lassi, Mike Lind, Rick Anderson
    In the opening round both fighters were a little impatient and nervous, swinging wildly trying to land the "Big One". It was Rush that was able to land good, well placed shots that resulted in an 8 count for Beseth. During the 2nd round Beseth was able to pick up the pace but Rush just seemed to be more poised and composed. Beseth was able to find his rhythm to take the 3rd round - BUT as we say, "Too little too late."
    Winner: Tom Rush by Unanimous decision, 27-29, 27-29, 27-29.

  2. Amateur FCR Kickboxing, 3 Rounds
    Dave Wright, (Mondovi, Wisconsin, USA, 3-0-1, 160, 5'9" 9-5-86. Mike Lind, Eau Claire Kickboxing)
    VS Jason Newton (Rockford, Illinois, USA, 1-1, 159, 6', 7-5-89, Todd Green & Danny Olson, Team Green Kickboxing)
    Ref: Chris Cichon
    Judges: Bill Lassi, Heath Fonnest, Rick Anderson
    This fight starts out fast action and fun to watch. Newton was trying to establish his obvious TaekwonDo experience with switch kicking and lots of spins. Wright was very patience and waited threw the storm of kicks, which few of them found any solid target. It paid off! Wright scored an 8 count in the 2nd as Newton fatigued badly. In the 3rd round Newton was so tired it appeared as if he could not hold his arms up to protect himself. There was no 8 count given but two of the three judge's scored an 8-10 for Wright in the 3rd. Fighting in the ring is its own world, and one must understand the principles to be effective. I believe Newton has a good future with kickboxing, he just needs to make the transition.
    Winner: Dave Wright by unanimous decision, 30-26, 30-25 & 29-26.

  3. Amateur FCR Kickboxing - 3 Rounds
    Nate Payne, (Zimmerman, Minnesota, USA, 1-0, 215, 6'2", 10-21-81, Jimmie Johnson, CMMA, Cambridge Mixed Martial Arts)
    VS Mike Yount (Stanley, Wisconsin, USA, 5-5, 227, 1-29-85, Mike Lind, Eau Claire Kickboxing)
    Ref: Chris Cichon
    Judges: Bill Lassi, Heath Fonnest, Rick Anderson
    The heavyweights enter the ring…Payne with an 0-0 recorded looked experienced in something? He scored upper cut after upper cut and his overall ringmanship looked as if he was a seasoned amateur. Payne was able to dominate rounds 1 & 2 with movement, being relaxed and good display of boxing accompanied with an occasional high kick - impressive! Yount just couldn't find the mark, until the 3rd! It was a different fight. Yount was able to take the 3rd round with ease. The rolls got totally reversed. Yount looked as if he just needed a better warm up, or more rounds to really get going. Yount landed a crushing roundhouse kick to Payne's body, that was notably effective - and he continued to land and score with that kick, there may be a broken rib or two? I believe Yount will be a better pro fighter with more rounds to fight. It will be exciting to see what happens with this fighter.
    Winner: Nate Payne by Unanimous decision, 29-28, 29-28, 29-28.

  4. Amateur FCR Kickboxing, 3 Rounds
    Brett Jones (Rockford, Illionis, USA, 1-1, 149, 5'9", 3-11-90, Todd Green, Danny Olson, Troy Hughes, Team Green Kickboxing)
    VS Dave Pekarek (Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA, 15-8, 151, 5'8", 11-19-76, Twin Cities Kickboxing & Cellar Kickboxing).
    Ref: Bill Lassi
    Judges: Mike Lind, Heath Fonnest, Rick Anderson
    It is fun to see fighters being active and having fun - as is the case with Pekarek. I have watched him thrrough the years and he continues to keep walking the walk, and just having fun out there. However, we have the younger stronger Jones that dominated all rounds and is trying to make a name for himself. This was not a burn burner, but just fun to watch.
    Winner: Brett Jones by Unanimous decision, 30-27, 30-27, 29-28

  5. IKF Amateur FCR Light Welterweight Minnesota State Title
    Nick Riley (Little Canada, Minnesota, USA, 4-1, 138, 5'6", Jon Lewis, Cellar Kickboxing)
    VS John Profant (Cambridge, Minnesota, USA, *0-2, 139, 5'9", 10-20-90, Jimmie Johnson, CMMA, Cambridge Mixed Martial Arts)
    Ref: Bill Lassi
    Judges: Mike Lind, Heath Fonnest, Rick Anderson
    This 4 round fight was completely controlled by Riley. This kid has got the whole package... movement, rhythm, kicks & punches - very relaxed and poised as a fighter. He has the look of a professional! I also noticed the high kicking ability of Profant and his own level of awesome-ness as he was able to put some good shots together. There were times that Profants kicks were telegraphed and Riley was able to block, move, or Super Man punch his way out. The 4th round was the best to watch as both fighters let it all go, both fighters composed and relaxed but busy, a very classy and professional looking fight! Thank you fellas!!!
    Winner: Nick Riley by Unanimous decision, 36-40, 37-39, 36-40. Riley is the new Minnesota State Champion!
  6. Professional Muay Thai, 5 Rounds
    Brandon Buchholz (Minnesota, USA, Pro 9-6, A 3-1, 145, 5'7", 11-24-81)
    VS Todd Brukes (Prior Lake, Minnesota, USA, Pro 0-1, A 2-1-1, 145, 5'7", 1-10-70, Sergio Cunha, Minnesota Fight Factory)
    Ref: Chris Cichon
    Judges: Bill Lassi, Heath Fonnest, Rick Anderson
    This was the first Professional fight of the night. 5 rounds of Muay Thai action. It was very obvious Brooks had a lack of experience as an all around fighter. However, he was there to bring it and fought as long as he could and put together some damaging techniques. Buchholz just took his time and gained his rhythm as each round went by. You could see he was trying a little of this and a little of that until a devastating leg kick found a SLAPPING, CRACKING target. Brooks showed the damage of the kick by cringing grimacing and limping badly. However Buchholz was hesitant on landing that shot again, I don't know why - it was there for him on a platter! Buchholz was able to land that kick a couple more times in the coming rounds which added to the damage and was a perfect set up for the head kick that dropped Brooks and simultaneously the referee stepped in as Brooks' corner throws in the towel.
    Winner: Brandon Buchholz by TKO at 1:10 of round 5.
  7. PRO International Rules 5 Rounds
    Neil Halmstad (Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin, USA, Pro 3-2, AM 24-9-2, 159, 5'10", 2-9-75, Mike Lind, Eau Claire Kickboxing)
    VS Bryan Lachia (Lombard, Illinois, USA, 0-1,159, 5'9", 6-8-90, Sergio Cunha, Minnesota Fight Factory)
    Referee: Bill Lassi
    Judges: Heath Fonnest, Rick Anderson, TBA
    This was the only International Rules fight of the night. Once again we see experience vs. youth. Experience takes control here. Halmstad took a very early lead in this fight with patience and well placed combinations. Lachia started out wild and was trying to bait Halmstad into distracting movements. Halmstad walked threw all Lachia's attacks and in the 2nd round takes Lachia's wind by a 1, 2 punch followed by round house kick to the body, for the 8 count. That technique was repeated by Halmstad several times in the 3rd, until the stoppage by referee Lassi.
    Winner: Neil Halmstad by TKO at 1:05 of round 3.
  8. PRO Muay Thai 5 Rounds
    Rico Washington (Vadnais Heights, Minnesota, USA, PKB: 0-1, Pro MMA 14-6, 170, 5'8", 7-22-79, Sergio Cunha, Minnesota fight Factory)
    VS Eric Ortiz (St. Paul, Minnesota, USA, Pro 3-0, Am 0-1, 169, 5'11" 7-26-83, Chris Cichon, Cellar Kickboxing)
    Ref: Bill Lassi
    Judges: Mike Lind, Heath Fonnest, Rick Anderson
    In the first round there was not much action at all, both fighters trying to figure the other out. Washington showed that he had very fast punching speed and power - but nothing landed. Ortiz, testing the waters, was able to land just a couple of techniques right at the end of the round to win it. The 2nd round was pretty much the same deal as both fighters showed "too" much respect for each other and no one was able to commit and engage. This is a very common thing that happens to two fighters very much ready to get it on, but exercise too much caution in the fear that a mistake may result in a short night. As the rounds continued the crowd was instigating the action and cheering their corner on. There were brief fight encounters but the whole of the fight remained slow with little action. In the 5th we saw an increase in action as both fighters stood toe to toe trying to steal the last round. In the end, Ortiz was able to do just a bit more clinching and striking to win a unanimous decision.
    Winner: Eric Ortiz by Unanimous decision, 49-46, 49-46 & 48-47.
