July 20th, 2013 - Bridgwater England



IKF TITLE BOUT RESULTS

  1. IKF Professional FCR
    British Super Middleweight Title

    Chris James (Bridgwater, England, 15-8-3, 77.1kg, 6'1", 07-29-86, Arthur Meek 07768198353)
    VS Jon Durrant (Dunstable, England, 31-9-1, 77.0kg, 6'2", 08-12-79, Pete Irving 07429610021)
    WINNER: Chris James by KO 1:15 Round 8 Jon Durrant receives 45 day medical suspension until 5th September
    • Jon Durrant receives 45 day medical suspension until 5th September.

    The excellent Chris James continued his march towards world recognition with an 8 round stoppage over world class Jon Durrant in a voluntary defence of his IKF British Title. James has had a patchy record but in the last 2 years has stepped up a level, producing some fantastic results.
    Tonight was a clinical display that started with both vastly experienced men feeling each other out and stepping up the pace accordingly. This was a classic Full Contact contest that had everything. Great combinations, spectacular kicking and a clash between 2 very dangerous and even fighters.
    It was evident by the 6th round that James was starting to hurt Durrant to the body, something he has been particularly good at of late. Durrant took a count and from then on seemed to cringe in pain with every shot. In the 8th round james found the target with almost every shot until Durrant finally sand to the canvas, unable to make the count.
    A successful defence and now Chris James must surely go on to a European title. It is worth remembering that current IKF World Champion James Wallis holds a win and a draw over Chris James and a rubber match for the world title is a strong possibility for next year

  2. IKF Professional FCR
    Southern Area Light Heavyweight Title

    Craig Liddell (Bristol, England, 6-2, 79.8kg, 6'3", 02-15-79, Ross Chick 07967319907)
    VS Jon Smith (Chard, England, 11-2-2, 81.3kg, 5'11", 03-07-84 , Self 07598 316550)
    WINNER: Jon Smith by RSC 1:28 Round 1
    • Craig Liddell receives a 30 day medical suspension until 19th August.

    John Smith made short work of Craig Liddell in their IKF Southern Area Contest.This was expected to be a close affair with both men able to deliver heavy shots but both open to big shots as well. This is how it turned out with Smith connecting early in the first. Liddell wobbled and Smith stuttered, almost not believing he had connected. But once it registered Smith was relentless and Liddell had no chance to get himself back into the fight. New Champion Jon Smith.

  3. IKF Amateur Women's FCR
    Southern Area Light Welterweight Title

    Clara Norman (Bournemouth, England, 4-0-1 Boxing 0-2-2, 63.1kg, 5'9", 11-18-70, Carl Sams 01202294223)
    VS Zoe Hackwood (Weston, England, 3-2, 62.4kg, 5'5", 10-31-88, Stuart Davies 07969933558)
    WINNER: Clara Norman by unanimous decision 50-46, 48-47, 50-46

    Clara Norman has been fighting for 10 years but always struggled to find opponents due to her weight (70kg). However, a change in training took her down to 63kg and she has been extremely busy over the last 18 months, culminating in this IKF Light Welterweight Southern Area Title challenge against Weston's Zoe Hackwood.
    The contest was a volatile affair with both girls trading from the opening bell. Norman quickly established herself as the stronger fighter, matching Hackwood shot for shot and backing her up for most of the first round. But the Weston girl had come for the belt and never stopped coming back.
    The second was a stronger round for Hackwood and you had to at least give her a share of it as Norman settled at a longer range, giving Hackwood room to move.
    In the third Norman was under instruction to close the range down again and keep the pressure on the whole time. She obliged and at one point a desperate Hackwood looked to bite Norman on the blind side of the referee. We really were down in the trenches now.
    Norman stepped up a gear in the 4th and dominated again with sharp punches and kicks on the end of them. Hackwood fought back but had no real answer.
    Coming out for the final round Hackwood needed the stoppage and Norman knew it. Still she stood toe to toe looking for her own stoppage, there was no resting on her laurels. It was a fantastic contest and a worthy unanimous decision, and the title belt went to Clara Norman.
    Congratulations to Zoe Hackwood for her effort and the part she played in making this a cracking title fight!

  • WINTENSITY
    • If you have not heard about Wintensity by now, you better start doing your homework.
      And if you don't finish your homework, make sure you attend the FREE Short course, mini seminar that will be held at this years IKF World Classic after the Welcome Meeting
      This course has been sponsored by the IKF and International Fight Sports and is free to everyone who pre-registers, so there is no reason you should miss it.
    • The seminar training provided by Wintensity is designed to help martial artists gain a greater understanding of necessary mental preparation for any physical conflict, including competitive fighting.
    • Wintensity was created by former IKF World Classic Tournament Champion Eric Parker. Eric began training in the martial arts at age six, and is now 41 years old. With 35 years of continuous martial arts training, he still trains and teaches Muay Thai every day and trains in JiuJitsu several days every week. He retired this year from competitive Muay Thai kickboxing with an official record of 12-0 (7 wins by KO). Eric was the first fighter to win "4" straight IKF World Classic Tournament bouts by TKO/KO on his way to winning the 2009 IKF World Classic Muay Thai Lightweight Amateur Title. He won his Championship bout at 48 seconds of round 1 with a Spinning Hook Kick after he defeated all 3 of his previous opponents by TKO in what was the largest fighter bracket of the tournament. Now retired, he is also a former ISKA United States Light-Welterweight Amateur Champion, and ISKA Florida State Light-Welterweight Amateur Champion.
    • After serving in the Marine Corps, Eric entered the field of Law Enforcement where he first worked as a communications officer for three years, and then served for ten years as a street patrol officer, a K9 officer, and a special operations police officer. During his time in Law Enforcement, Eric was a SWAT Team Member for eight years, and a SWAT Team Section Leader/SWAT Instructor for six years. Eric was also assigned for five years as a patrol K9 Handler. In May of 1999, Eric was wounded during a shoot-out while serving as a SWAT Team member and executing a high-risk narcotics search warrant. These events, along with specific education in the anatomy and physiology of the human brain and the impact of critical stress upon physical performance, have laid the foundation for his passion for training in this environment. Eric has a B.S. in Psychology with a continuing education focus on Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and cognitive processes.

Something To Think On...



Lets Not Forget The Experience... The MOMENTS...
From IKF President Steve Fossum





The photo at the right is from 1999 of nearly all the IKF Tournament Champions of the FIRST KICKBOXING & MUAY THAI Tournament EVER in the United States, the 1999 IKF/RINGSIDE USA Nationals..

Unlike most years, nearly all of them stayed until the very end to watch all the fights, meet many new people and simply absorb the moment. Some were even unsure if there was going to ever be another tournament like it...

Well, 13 more followed, and this weekend, many of you reading this will be in the same place many of them were. Some won the Tournament title while some fell short. Some were Champion trainers while others told their fighters, "Hold your head high, you will fight another day." Some went on to become great Pro Champions, Trainers, Gym Owners and Officials, while others went on to excel on other professions. Still... They all had something in comment...

"They ALL shared this moment.".

Some of those pictured above included...

Duane Ludwig, Angela Rivera (Parr), Dan Rawlings, Charles Baron, Derrick Yuen, Mick Doyle, Jim VanOver, Mark and John Greubel, Marshall Hamel, Heath Fonnest, Brooks Mason, Rob Wiley, Robert Rene Jr., Duke Roufus, Peyton Russell, David Pareja, Harvey Grasse, Brian Fowler, Brad Fowler, Paul Pearman, Robert Carlton, Elliott Cooper, Greg Davis, Rob Zbilski, Aaron Lassi, Jennifer Thyssen, Gene Fields, Jason Johnson, Kongnapa, Mike Carlson, Sven Bean, Tim Mazurkiewicz, Jeff Mullen, Zachary Day, Craig Monyelle, Jean Baptiste, Clarence Thatch.

"They ALL shared this moment.".
We hope you look forward to your moments this weekend...





More To Think On...
From IKF President Steve Fossum



A Roman philosopher in the mid-1st century AD named Seneca once wrote,

"Expecting is the greatest impediment to living. In anticipation of tomorrow, it loses today."


Dear 2013 IKF World Classic Fighters, Trainers and Officials.
This coming weekend we will all gather in Orlando Florida to share and witness yet another opportunity to see everyone perform at the top of their game. None of us know what the future holds for us from who will be the proudest parent or trainer of them all, the most accurate official or who will return home as Champions. Regardless of our anticipations, I'd like to ask a favor of all of you...

Stop thinking about what the weekend will bring you…
Instead, "Remember your Journey that brings you here."

So often, we focus so much on the end product that we miss everything happening in front of us. The MANY Great things unfolding every moment of our day. Back in 2002, my wife Toni was given some great advice by a good friend for our wedding. She was told…

"During the middle of everything at the reception, stop for a moment and look around and see everyone and take it all in, cause you will only have this one moment to do so."

As any married couple can tell you, a lot takes place on your wedding day, and so often, we forget so many little things. I wish I were given that advice my wife was given, as it would have been very helpful. She recalls many little things years later while to me; it all seemed to just happen so fast… I wish we could do it all again, knowing what I know now.

On the 3-day drive out here, in the past, I've always focused on the destination, and not the drive. This year, I took that advice my wife was given years ago. In doing so this year, it was no surprise that I had many moments where I just stopped and absorbed what was happening around me. Needless to say, in a 3,000 mile drive across our great nation, despite it being a speedy trip, there were so many things I missed on the very same trip I'd done before. Special thanks to Dan for documenting so many moments. Although trivial as he was doing it, these moments were so great to look back at… His actions taught me that I need to take more pictures in my life. But not of Food Dan… :)

All this being said, I ask ALL of you whether driving or flying here, to take a moment during your travels and "Absorb the moment" of your lives that are all part of this great journey you will set out on for this coming weekend. It is much more than what happens at the end. Far more than any belt or trophy can give you.

This weekend you need to take note of those who helped you to take this journey. From your loving family and friends, sponsors, and ESPECIALLY your trainers who have taken their time out of their busy schedules to help you in your quest to be the best. The experience, as Brooks always says is "Life Changing." And it truly is. After this weekend, you will all have become something different, something greater than you were before the weekend started. Take the time to say hello to your peers in our great sport. Meet new people, give thanks and appreciation with "Thank You" and "Please' as often as you can. Remember, people may not remember so much of what you did, but will surly remember how you made them feel.

When it comes time for you fighters to perform in the ring, take heart and absorb the words put together by a rap artist in a song that to some, are just words, but to me and you, they need to be fully absorbed, or you may not leave the ring as a Champion. Those words are:

"Look, if you had one shot, or one opportunity, to seize everything you ever wanted in one moment, would you capture it or just let it slip?"

Think about it everyone…
As I started in this post, life is all about the "Moments". The question for everyone reading this is… "Would you capture it or just let it slip?"

Good luck everyone.. Make sure to Walk YOUR Path this weekend... and we will see you in Orlando…

OFFICE CLOSED

Dear Fight Fans,
Due to our 2013 IKF World Classic Amateur Kickboxing & Muay Thai Championships in Orlando Florida The International Fight Sports offices will be closed from Friday, July 12th until Monday Afternoon, July 15th when we will have our offices set up in Orlando Florida for the Tournament. Any e-mails will be returned after Monday, July 15th.

In a few hours, IKF President Steve Fossum and IKF Co Founder Dan Stell will be leaving IKF Headquarters in Newcastle, California for the 3,000 mile journey to Orlando. The two will drive to Omaha Nebraska where they will stop for a break and meet with IKF World Ambassador Brooks Mason.

Last year Brooks made the second half of the trip with them, however this year, unless Steve and Dan can talk him out of it, he will be flying to the event. After their stop in Omaha, they will get back on the road and hope to arrive in Orlando sometime late Sunday night, early Monday morning...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 (UPS) who was also their shipping sponsor, 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. In fact this year, he will do all the driving himself unless they kidnap Brooks in Omaha.

For more info on the 2013 IKF World Classic Amateur Kickboxing & Muay Thai Championships, click HERE. Thank you and we hope to see you in Orlando!

SEE YOU IN ORLANDO!

LEGAL HEADGEAR
Allowed At The IKF World Classic

Legal HEADGEAR (Which is Mandatory for EVERY Fighter) MUST Be
"COMPETITION HEADGEAR" and NOT, "SPARRING or TRAINING"

If it doesn't say "COMPETITION" on the headgear, try calling your headgear manufacturer and ask for a "PRINT OUT" of the headgear description.
Competition headgear will say, "Competition Headgear" such as this one, click HERE.

We found a pretty good page on The internet that talks about Headgears and rates them.
It also names them as "Competition" or "Training/Sparring" Headgear.
We feel it will be helpful for Everyone.
Just Click HERE.


LEGAL
HEADGEAR FOR COMPETITION

It is illegal for an IKF Amateur fighter to use any "Training" style headgear.
This has always been described as headgear with a jaw bar across the front of the jaw.
However, there are other headgears that are NOT allowed in IKF Amateur competition.

Headgear that are sold with the word "Training" or "Sparring" in there title are not legal "Competition" headgear for
IKF Amateur Kickboxing. (Just like they are not allowed in USA Amateur Boxing)
The issue with "TRAINING" or "SPARRING" Headgears is that they usually have the large ear padding or the jaw bars.
When you look at the LEGAL Competition Headgear you will notice there is no Jaw Bar and the Ears are far less padded.


Training Headgear range between 16 - 18 ounces depending on the size.
Official IKF Competition Headgear should range from 10 to 12 ounces in weight with or without cheek protectors
To Accommodate Small Through XL Sizes.


HERE ARE SOME PHOTOS OF BOTH STYLES.

2013 IKF World Classic
The Below Is On Every IKF World Classic Contenders Certificate.


"Walk The Walk"

I could have sat in the crowd & "Talked the Talk".
Heckled or cheered but instead I fought.

I could have been a critic and TALKED of what I "COULD" have done.
But I Made My Dream a Reality today, and Regrets, I have None.

Those Who Talk of others, instead of DO, for themselves are critics with no respect.
With a title of critic, what else would you expect?

Instead, I entered the ring of battle, to put my skills to the test of War.
With my hands, my feet and my HEART, I will make the crowd ROAR!

I may win or lose, but this is not the only test.
For I have "Walked the Walk" and that alone Is My BEST!

For I'm a Champion, for DOING what I said I would DO!
And if you're a critic of my skills, my response is "Where Were YOU?"

I was the Warrior Fighting, as a Gladiator for my Brass.
I've Achieved My Victory just by being here, and I Did It All With CLASS!

Steve Fossum, IKF President
Looking Forward to seeing everyone in Orlando next week…
To "Walk the Walk and Bring It ON!"

TRAINERS
& CORNERMEN

There were several issues last year within the trainer/fighter and officials areas that has brought about some changes and requirements for this years IKF World Classic. The officials confirming all the trainers this year are going to be VERY strict with who comes into the warm-up areas and ESPECIALLY the fight pit. During the event, please be prepared to take a "Written Tournament Cornerman License" Test to assure us that you are truly a "TRAINER" and not just a Friend, Girlfriend, Boyfriend, Parent etc. who wants to be allowed into the Fighter area.

If an individual who takes the test fails, they will lose their cornerman pass and be required to purchase an event ticket, with NO CREDIT from your pass going towards the event ticket. So, here is your last chance to Transfer the fee' you paid for your cornerman's pass for credit towards an event ticket. (For Ticket Prices Click HERE.)

If you wish to do this, you need to e-mail the IKF prior to Wednesday, July 10th at 5:PM and simply put in your e-mail: main@ikfkickboxing.com

My name is John Doe. please transfer the fees paid for a cornermans pass towards the cost of my ticket I will purchase for the event. Thank you.




IT'S OFFICIAL...
RECORDS HAVE BEEN BROKEN!

Well for those wondering, it's official.
This years IKF World Classic is the Largest Ever in terms of registered fighters.
The previous record was 2010 the record was 320.
This year that record was broken with a registered fighters total of
358.

The majority of the tournaments around the world would like everyone to believe that the big win is in the number of registered fighters. However, the REAL WIN is the number of fighters who "Show-Up" to actually compete. Some hide these numbers by only posting the Champion and second place. Since the first IKF Tournament, we have always posted EVERY CONTENDER on our results pages. With this in mind, of the 358 who have registered for this years IKF World Classic, 332 are still on schedule to "Show-Up' and actually "Walk the Walk!"

To give you a perspective of drops, in that record breaking year of 2010, of the 320 who registered, 268 were how many fighters that showed up to "Walk the Walk!" Here is a breakdown of the past 14 years with total number of registered fighters listed first. Those who showed up second and the number of dropped as a percentage number.



As you can see, it's not always about the number of registered fighters. It's about "HOW MANY" actually show up. Last year the IKF World Classic numbers dropped below 80% because we had so many switch to semi contact point kickboxing. these fighters are not included in the "Show Up" numbers. If so, last years numbers and other years since we started doing the Semi Contact Point kickboxing event, would average between 9 to 14% higher.

The bottom line here is, "Fighters SHOW-UP" to the IKF World Classic! A Tournament as one trainer put it, "Just showing up and being placed in the results is a big plus an a fighters resume. And to win it... Even more. Keep in mind this. The IKF World Classic is not the only think the IKF does year around. To add, the IKF is not just a "Regional" sanctioning body. The IKF is World Wide, and being so draws a lot more credibility and recognition to the IKF World Classic and it's Champions. There are plenty of places fighters can win titles today.

However, when you win an IKF title, or an IKF World Classic Title,

You will be remembered as a Champion Forever!












Here are the records we broke this year for the 2013 IKF World Classic...


To see all the past IKF Tournament records, click
HERE!









ANOTHER REMINDER...
CHECK YOUR STATS!
CORRECT ALL FALSE OR MISSING INFO

It is MANDATORY for everyone who is registered to fight in the IKF World Classic Tournament to assure ALL your listed stats and information is correct.
If any of it is found to be incorrect you risk being dropped from the tournament.
THIS INCLUDES the correct spelling of your name, city, state you are from, trainers name, fight record, HEIGHT, age, date of birth.
So at this time we urge ALL Registered Fighters to check out their listing.
If something is missing such as your record or height, we need you to e-mail it to us ASAP!

BAD PRINTING?
It is VERY Possible we could not read your writing on your registration forms.
We happen to know we have A LOT of cities, trainer names, etc. misspelled or listed incorrect because we simply could not read your writing.
This has been especially true for the faxed registrations.



If you are missing info or we later discover you have not given us your TRUE info (Such as your fight record, height or more so...) you will be dropped from the tournament. This includes your fight record in other fighting styles such as Boxing and or Mixed Martial Arts. We need you to inform us of this info NOW, NOT LATER via e-mail at main@ikfkickboxing.com
- Thank You.
