A FINAL THOUGHT FROM LAST YEARS IKF WORLD CLASSIC...




"I Want To Make Sure MY Fighters ARE!"



FROM LAST YEARS 2013 IKF WORLD CLASSIC...

Quote of the day...

Today we had one of those e-mail exchanges between a trainer attending the 2013 IKF World Classic. He had spoken to some fighters from another camp and asked why their fighters would never fight his. They told him they would not fight in his town but that they wanted to fight his team on a local event of theirs. However, the trainer told them it wasn't going to happen because he didn't trust the local event he was talking about. The promoter ran the sanctioning body, there are no state commission regulations that the sanctioning body is required to follow in the state where the event is. No fighter medical insurance, no doctor at ringside, no ambulance on site and the promoter selected all of his own officials. So they made an agreement they would all meet up at this years 2013 IKF World Classic in Orlando Florida this July.

Of course the main reason for this was that it was "Neutral Territory" for the two camps to square off.
However, the trainer went on to remind us that there were several other reasons as well.

After noting all of these things between the two camps, the trainer we were speaking with registered his fighters. However, a few days later, the team he wanted to challenge went and registered for another Tournament. He also told us that he was contacted by some people who tried to persuade him to register at this other tournament as well. He asked them how they even got his phone number since it had changed within the last few weeks. Without hesitation they told him, "Oh we found it on the IKF tournament website. They list all the trainers phone numbers."

After reading his story we replied after each e-mail and all of his noted items and basically agreed that we do require more for a fighter to compete in the IKF World Classic. We also agreed that although the IKF Fighter Registration fees are less than all the other tournaments, it's more expensive to compete at the IKF World Classic if you choose to factor in all the added expenses it takes to attend from travel/airfare to hotel. His reply back was an eye opener as he asked;

"Why do all the American fighters always think fighting in Europe is more prestigious than fighting here in the USA? It's like, to them, if they get to jump on a plane and travel, the title is worth more. However, I can't think of one fighter who won over in Europe or Thailand for that matter that stands out. Also, where can one find the list of these Champions? I see some names here and there but the IKF Tournament is the only tournament, and only web site actually, that keeps full records of all past events. Not just the name of a winner, but who they fought and how they won. (To see the page he was referring to, click HERE) It makes a big difference if one wins a tournament title as a novice or open, along with how many fighters they fought to win the tournament title. If jumping on a plane and traveling means so much to them, why not jump on a plane to Florida? They would spend less in travel and if they win the title (Belt or Trophy), or even if they don't, at least they would be remembered on the IKF website as one of the fighters that year that walked the walk, win or lose, and will always be remembered as a contender at the tournament if not a Champion."

We couldn't help but agree and we also reminded him that these added expenses are all part of the requirement to be accepted as a fighting contender in the IKF World Classic Tournament, let alone become a Champion. So by the time we received his final e-mail, he pretty much summed everything up in one sentence which to us was the "Quote of the Day" when his final e-mail said...


It's took me a few years, but it's OK now because I've realized the simple fact that not everyone can be an
IKF WORLD CLASSIC CHAMPION

But I want to make sure MY Fighters ARE!


For those who can't make it, really, we understand... And we are sorry you will miss the opportunity.
For those who will be there, we look forward to seeing you Walk the Walk and Bring It On!

SOUTHERN AREA CRUISERWEIGHT TITLE *DEFENSE

*Andreij Manzolo (Bournemouth, England, 8-2, 85.3, 5'11", 8-9-84, Jimmy Johnstone 00447715971500)
VS Paul Williams (Bournemouth, England, 7-3-2, 85.5kg, 6', 06-10-86, Ross Phillips, 004475965514348)
Andreij Manzolo did just what he had to in retaining the title against the man he took it from earlier this year. The much anticipated re-match saw both men insisting that the scorecards would not be needed but when it came to it neither man comitted enough to make that happen. Williams clearly wanted to stick and move to prevent Manzolo from spoiling but for much of the contest he cam up short with the shots. Manzolo on the other hand did less work but it all counted. You cold have argued with giving Williams a share of the first and third rounds but at the end of the day Manzolo did what was required, and much as he tried, Williams could not pin him down. A unanimous decision to, and still champion Andreij Manzolo.
WINNER: Andreij Manzolo by unanimous decision 50-45, 49-46, 49-48.

Former IKF World Champion
Mark Selbee...
One of God's Champions Now...











If you were to have ever seen Mark Selbee, you would wonder what could take the life of such a strong man. At 6'4", 220 pounds Mark Selbee was in great physical shape and the thought of him losing his life was the last thing you would think. It makes us all realize there are some things more powerful than us all.

As many reading this might remember, Mark was a former IKF Pro World Champion and held several IKF titles during his kickboxing career before he retired from the sport in 2006. However, his IKF titles were not his most impressive by far... Mark was a Champion Father and Husband who with his wife Amy Selbee had 3 children, Easton, Ellie Brooke and Hudson.

Sadly, Mark lost his life in a drowning accident this past Saturday at Hillsdale Lake in Miami County Kansas (USA) while on a boating outing with two of his three children.

"His kids lived for him and he lived for his kids," said the long-time friend, Jarrod Townsend. "Mark's passion was people. The most important people in his life were his family and his friends."

A Washburn University graduate who was born and raised in Topeka, Mark moved with his wife and their three children from Atlanta to Leawood about five months ago to be close to family and friends.

Between 2002 and 2006 with the guidance of Trainer Gary Brown, Mark won four IKF Titles:

  • IKF Amateur FCR East Coast (US) Heavyweight Title on April 12th, 2002.
  • IKF Pro FCR USA Heavyweight Title on February 1, 2003.
  • IKF Pro FCR North American Heavyweight Title on October 25th, 2003.
    • Defended It on April 23rd, 2004.
  • IKF Pro FCR Super Heavyweight World Title on September 11th, 2004.

On April 30, 2005, Mark made his K-1 debut against Tsuyoshi Nakasako at the K-1 World Grand Prix 2005 in Las Vegas. He won the fight, a tournament Quarter Final bout, via decision after three rounds. However, he was injured during the fight and was forced to withdraw from the tournament and replaced by Scott Lighty.

Mark retired from fighting in October of 2006 but continued on as a Kickboxing Trainer in Atlanta, Georgia before moving to Kansas.

After Mark retired from kickboxing competition, he became a kickboxing trainer in Atlanta. Townsend said he spoke to Mark only hours before the accident Saturday. Townsend said Mark had just rented a slip the day before and was excited to drop his boat in the water and take the kids out.

Exactly how or why Mark came to be in the water is still unknown. The cause of death won't be known until an autopsy. (To be performed this week) Townsend said it would have been incredibly unlike Mark to leave the his children on the boat alone. "Mark was extremely responsible and his kids were his life," Townsend said, "He was so protective of his children he would not have gone in the water for a swim."

There is little visibility beneath the surface of the murky lake. Sonar was used in the rescue effort, which ended when Mark's body was recovered early Sunday evening.

A fund-raising campaign for the family has already been established on the site giveforward.com - (Click HERE)

A Celebration of Mark's Life
Is scheduled for 11:AM to noon Friday at
United Methodist Church of the Resurrection
13720 Roe Avenue

Results From Deise Kickboxing Dunarvan's
"Gloves & Glory 2"
May 3rd, 2014 - Dungarvan, Ireland



IKF Ireland Secretary and 2013 Promoter of the year Vinny O Brien once again had another great show in Lawlors Hotel in Dungarvan this past Saturday 3rd May. The fight fans were treated to no less than 13 exciting bouts including two IKF All Ireland Title fights. Vinny enjoyed a full house for his efforts and a great athmosphere - not too shabby, when you consider that Irish Legend, Olympic Gold medalist and umpteen times European & World Boxing Champion Katie Taylor was in action less than 1000 metres away on the same night. To compete with that kind of pedigree in a small town the size of Dungarvan and still fill your house is nothing short of admirable.

IKF Point Muay Thai / Kickboxing
May 3rd, 2014 - Concord, North Carolina, USA



Concord, NC- May 3rd, 2014: Grand Master Ernest Dukes of Concord, NC should be standing very tall and feeling very proud today as he hit a homerun with a successful Point Kickboxing Tournament this past Saturday, May 3rd, 2014 in Concord, NC. From the first time Master Dukes introduced himself to IKF/PKB President Johnny Davis, he has crossed every "T" and dotted every "I" as we say here in the South in preparation for this event.

From adding the IKF/PKB to his website to creating beautiful designed posters and flyers, he did not miss a detail. Furthermore, the Southeast is riddled with tons of Karate Tournaments every weekend and you could be assured that Master Dukes would be in attendance at many of them with flyers and poster in hand…promoting his event.

The awards he gave were in many ways… exceptional! The Facility that he used was excellent and only had two divisions…Grappling and IKF Point Kickboxing which gave everyone plenty and space and leisure. Another gym would host assorted martial artist and disciplines and was well attended as well. Along with a separate Microphone, matted floor rings and its own fans, the gym was loaded with enthusiastic onlookers amazed at the athletes that showcased their amazing skills! The fighters were awesome and showed great respect for their opponents!

The Kickboxing community really showed their support for this quiet but proficient promoter who gave 100% effort in marketing and setting up the event! The fans witnessed for themselves why martial arts tournaments across North and South Carolina are buying into the excitement of IKF Point Kickboxing…Simply put…Its Exciting!

Promoters like Master Ernest Dukes will be one of the primary reasons for its success in years to come! Forward March!
