However, for once, if you can believe it, we can't. This years event was "EVERYTHING" all past IKF Tournaments have been, and yet far more. From record breaking numbers to record breaking performances by several fighters the accomplishments of this years WC are far too many to list out. Adding to the "seen" accomplishments, the IKF as a regulatory sanctioning body, established new Safety Protocols for not only all new amateur kickboxing events in Florida, but all Kickboxing and Muay Thai events worldwide. Anything short of what everyone saw this past weekend will be, well, "Below" acceptable for any "Tournament" style event.

We even served up some humble pie to ourselves when a mix up accidently left out some fighters from the opening brackets, that caused a delay Saturday morning before being fixed. To our praise to them, everyone took advantage of the delay to settle in and wait patiently before the brackets started. Once they did, nothing else stopped the action which was fast and furious and as always and of course, IMPRESSIVE!

What use to be a numbers game, was now a "PRESTIGE" thing as so many fighters and trainers explained to us over the weekend. As the IKF World Classic was growing and making a name for itself, it was all about numbers. However, for us, as many pointed out, it isn't about numbers anymore. It's about CLASS! It's about the prestige of what the World Classic title holds. The entire weekend from registrations to the final bout is "An Experience" none will forget. From the venue set up to the unmatched amount of awards the fighters receive, everyone realizes that nothing comes close to matching this event, and how EVERY fighter feels about it by the end of the weekend. The IKF Tournament found a need and filled it. Built an event, and they have come...

The room was filled with true contenders from around the globe who were willing to travel to a neutral location and meet ANY Fighter to "Walk The Walk" and prove to their peers they are everything from contending Gladiators to World Champions. Even those who may have lost in the opening round were able to prove to others their "Medal of Honor" after earning an IKF Medal for stepping in the ring at the IKF World Classic to "Walk the Walk!" They made the sacrifice to be a Champion in an OPEN division, against fighters both less as well as more experienced than them. They did not challenge to win a novice title. They challenged to win a "World Classic Title" - A Title unlike any other. Others around the world could have faced them this past weekend in the ring of battle, but choose not to.

For those who did win the title of IKF World Classic Champion, they were showered with awards that included their IKF World Classic Championship Certificate, Autograph Gloves, Champions hat (Which their trainer received as well) Champions hooded Sweatshirt and of course, their IKF World Classic Championship Belt. Fighters followed in tradition on Sunday with the saying, "You won the belt, you WEAR The belt!" Even those not winning the belt proudly wore their "Badge of Honor" per say, which was their IKF World Classic Medal. Why you may ask? Because they knew that so many others around the world didn't even try to be the BEST, yet "THEY" did, which even if they didn't win a belt, they won the respect of their peers by "Walking the Walk" when others did not.

We will have all the fight results with photos posted up next week. As for now, we will make the 3,000 mile journey back to the IKF Headquarters in Newcastle, California. To all of you who were a part of this years IKF World Classic, and we do mean "ALL OF YOU" from officials, trainers, fighters, hotel staff, family, friends and of course the tons of fans that "Packed the House" both days, (An attendance record set!) we want to thank you all and say how proud we are of all of you for making this years IKF World Classic an unforgettable experience for everyone!

In closing, there is a single phrase that pretty much sums up those who are a part of not just this years IKF World Classic, but all of them...

"What we do in Life, Echoes in Eternity."

That pretty much covers it all...

IKF Point Muay Thai Kickboxing is one of the fastest growing semi contact divisions in the martial arts. Although sometimes called different names, the idea is the same...creating a semi contact incubator environment for fighters to increase their skills.

In the IKF, ( Point Muay Thai Kickboxing ) their are no knockouts allowed and fights are closely monitored for safety while allowing the fighters to get the maximum benefit from their matches. For the past three years, IKF Point Muay Thai Kickboxing has been a part of the IKF World Kickboxing Classic in Orlando, Florida and each year this division continues to grow. Loaded with exciting action and nice trophies, family and friends love the very real action and intensity in each bout! As you see in the report above, more fighters are coming from abroad to compete in this level of competition. Some of those who did the IKF Point Muay Thai Kickboxing the year before were winners in the Full Contact portion of the tournament as they stepped up their game! This year, 9 year old Keelie Cargill, of Oklahoma City ( Pictured at right with IKF PKB President Johnny Davis and her new belt) won a world title in the Full Contact kids division with a TKO of here opponent.

We hope to see you at next year's IKF World Kickboxing Classic in Orlando in the full contact and the IKF Point Muay Thai Kickboxing division. If you would like to have an IKF Point Muay Thai Kickboxing division in your martial arts tournament or promote one in your hometown you can contact IKF PKB President, Johnny Davis at johnnyd@akpromotions.org or go to www.IKFPKB.com
