Take In The Moment...

For those who have been around awhile, Lets not forget these famous words our good friend and IKF World Ambassador Brooks Mason wrote several years ago when the IKF World Classic Tournament was just a USA Event. Come Championship Sunday, you may want to read this to yourself to be reminded what it all comes down to...


ANY Given Sunday...

"The saying in football is that on any given Sunday any team can win.
The champions of our sport will have no easy time at the IKF Nationals (Now IKF Worlds) as the best of the best come to meet the challenge. Fighters rise to the task when faced with great talent and our returning champions surely provide that. Don't hand out the belts quite yet as new talent will certainly emerge and increase the field of fighters to watch.
As Jesse Finney puts it "Stay positive".
I am positive there will be great fights for all the belts and we will enjoy the best tournament in America.
Looking forward to seeing all of you.
"

Brooks Mason




A FINAL THOUGHT FROM THE 2013 IKF WORLD CLASSIC...




"I Want To Make Sure MY Fighters ARE!"



FROM THE 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 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're 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!


"There Are Other Tournaments... But There is ONLY ONE WORLD CLASSIC!"



SEE YOU IN ORLANDO!

AT THE 2016
IKF
WORLD CLASSIC



"Return Of The Gladiators"

The 2016 IKF World Classic will be the 18th Year of this Prestigious Tournament. Like last year, our focus was on keeping the costs down for the participant of this event, which seems to be harder and harder to do every year.

The Hotel market nationwide is on a drastic increase, which made the decision on location for the 2016 event even harder to negotiate. Especially in the number one holiday destination in the world, Orlando, Florida.

Hotels in Orlando that use to give us room rates between $129 and $139 a night are now asking, and getting fees for those same rooms for prices like $179 to $225 a night. Although we could have signed on the dotted line with one of these resort locations, we stuck to our goal of making the World Classic affordable. We also kept in mind what many brought to our attention 2 years ago and more so this year. To please find a location closer to more restaurants and other activities within walking distance. Well, we accomplished this last year, and continued to do so for the 2016 IKF World Classic.

As we told everyone last fall when we announced the venue hotel for this years 2016 IKF World Classic we came to the conclusion that the location that offered the best deal for all involved was once again, the same location we selected for last years 2015 IKF World Classic.

IKF WORLD CLASSIC
HAS THE BEST SHOW-UP PERCENTAGE
THAN ANY OTHER TOURNAMENT


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 finishers. Since the first IKF Tournament, we've always posted EVERY CONTENDER on our results pages (CLICK HERE). With this in mind, of the 304 who registered for the 2015 IKF World Classic, 230 "Showed-Up' and actually "Walk the Walk!"

To give you a perspective of drops, in our 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 17 years with total number of registered fighters listed first, followed by those who showed up, and the percentage number of those who attended.


  1. FIRST YEAR: 1999: 91 Registered Fighters, / 72 Showed Up To Fight! An 80% Show Up Percentage: Council Bluffs, Iowa, USA.
  2. 2000: 145 / 116 - 80%: Council Bluffs, Iowa, USA.
  3. 2001: 266 / 207 - 77%: Olathe, Kansas, USA.
  4. 2002: 244 / 200 - 82%: Davenport, Iowa, USA.
  5. 2003: 242 / 220 - 90%: Cedar Rapids, Iowa, USA.
  6. 2004: 257 / 220 - 86%: Orlando, Florida, USA.
  7. 2005: 270 / 240 - 89%: Orlando, Florida, USA.
  8. 2006: 217 / 190 - 88%: Cedar Rapids, Iowa, USA.
  9. 2007: 201 / 194 - 97%: Orlando, Florida, USA.
  10. 2008: 262 / 229 - 87%: Orlando, Florida, USA.
  11. 2009: 280 / 237 - 85%: Orlando, Florida, USA.
  12. 2010: 320 / 268 - 84%: Orlando, Florida, USA.
  13. 2011: 282 / 226 - 80%: Orlando, Florida, USA.
  14. 2012: 298 / 228 - 77%: Orlando, Florida, USA
  15. 2013: 361 / 289 - 80%: Orlando, Florida, USA
  16. 2014: 310 / 257 - 82%: Orlando, Florida, USA
  17. 2015: 304 / 230 - 75%: Orlando, Florida, USA

AVERAGE PERCENT Of Registered Fighters That show-up to the IKF Tournament: 83%


As you can see, it's not always about the number of registered fighters. It's about "HOW MANY" actually show up to "Walk The Walk" and meet up Face to Face to compete with their peers. Last year the IKF World Classic numbers dropped below 80% because like in 2012, we had a lot of fighters switch to semi contact point kickboxing. The fighters who compete in the IKF Point Kickboxing are not included in the "Show Up" numbers. If so we would average between 9 to 14% higher.

The bottom line here is, "Fighters SHOW-UP" to the IKF World Classic!

As one trainer put it, "Just showing up, and being placed in the results is a big plus on a fighters resume. And to win it... Even more."

Keep in mind this. The IKF World Classic is not the only thing the IKF does year around. The IKF is not just a "Regional" sanctioning body. The IKF is Worldwide, and being so draws a lot more credibility and recognition to the IKF World Classic Champions as well as contenders. There are plenty of places fighters can win titles today, However, when you win an IKF Title, or an IKF World Classic Title, You'll be remembered as a Champion Forever!

June 4th, 2016 - Swansea, Wales



IKF Amateur Unified Rules
Lightweight European Title

Joe Le Maire (Bury St Edmunds, England, 36-25-2, 50.9kg, 5'3", 12-05-97, Richard Gent, 01284827040)
VS
Kristain Hynes
(Neath Wales, 9-0-1, 50.7kg, 5'4", 09-03-97, James Wallis, 004478376300821)

In what was pitched to be the fight of the night, Le Maire and Hynes met for the 2nd time. Their first encounter was in a recent 4 man tournament, won on a split decision by Hynes, was the fight of the night on that particular promotion. It made sense that they should go again over the longer distance.

Le Maire's record is *deceiving as he has an undisclosed junior pedigree and has fought at a high level from the start. He currently divides his time between his United Kingdom base and the Sumalee Muay Thai Camp in Thailand. There was no question that this was an excellent match up.

However, tonight was not to be his night as a fired up Kristian Hynes came straight at him from the opening bell. There was no feeling out process and quickly Le Maire was down from a well timed front kick to the mid section. There was no count and he did not look hurt but Hynes must have seen something because he went straight to the mid section again with straight punches, dropping Le Maire legitimately this time. He was up quickly but there was no stopping the Welsh fighter who took yet another right hand to the solar plexus. Le Maire was unable to make the count. It was the shock of the evening but at the same time a very conclusive finish. Kristian Hynes just wants to let you all know that he has arrived! Congratulations to the new IKF European Champion. - PHOTO.
WINNER: Kristian Hynes by KO at 1:01 round 1.
Joe Le Maire has been issued a 45 day IKF Medical Suspension Until 19th July 2016.

IKF Amateur Unified Rules
Welterweight 5 Nations Title

Rory Evans
(Swansea, Wales, 7-1, 66.7kg, 5'7", 04-10-93, James Wallis, 004478376300821)
VS
Adam Keane
(Galway, Ireland, 10-8-3, 65.7kg, 5'8", 07-20-91, Pete Foley, 0878119227)

This was a lovely technical bout that, in the end was decided by who the fittest man was. Adam Keane had unexpectedly beaten the original Irish opponent for this title and had stepped in at two weeks notice to replace him. The bout opener was an even enough affair with both men working a good variety of skills with the hands and feet.

Evans took the round but Keane came back in the second to win on two out of three cards (even on the third).

A count in the third left the Irishman trailing and although he tried to up his game in a close 4th, Evans was pulling away and won the final round clearly to snatch the belt.
WINNER: Rory Evans by unanimous decision 49-45, 49-45, 49-46

Jack Eglin
(Melksham, England, 4-1, 59.0kg, 60kg, 5'6", 10-20-99, Brad Stu 00447859922035)
VS
Kalem John
(Llanelli, Wales, 5-0, 60kg, 5'8", 06-16-98, James Wallis 004478376300821)

In what was a very skilful contest, both fighters put an excellent variety of techniques together, delivering them the way they should be, in combination. But it was Kalum John who did more work on the offensive and offered up 2-1 counters every time he was on the receiving end. Eglin lifted his game in the final round, knowing that he needed the stoppage but it was too little, too late and on this night. In the battle of the unbeaten fighters, Kalum John showed himself to be just that little bit better on the night to capture the IKF title.
WINNER: Kalum John by unanimous decision 49-46, 50-45, 50-45
