EXPLOSIVE!
That pretty much sums up the only way you could explain
Dale "Apollo" Cook
as a Fighter!
He was one of those fighters that had a way of showing a true skill in the fight sports!
Fighters who could put combinations together that overwhelmed their opponents to the point they just dropped to the canvas to escape the barrage of punches and kicks raining down on them!

Dale "Apollo" Cook
was born on November 24, 1958, in Tulsa, Oklahoma. He is a 7th Degree Black Belt and has rank in several different martial arts. He began his martial arts career at the age of 15, studying Tae Kwon Do. He tested and passed his black belt test at age 17 and he opened his own school not long after.

Many Kickboxers are known as just a great kicker or a great puncher. However, like many of the Champions of his day and today, to be Great, you need to put these weapons together. This was something Dale did well. From his "Rocket Powerful" Jab to his flashy Kicks, Dale was an "Ultimate Package!"

He was one who could put both together in Explosive fashion! He was not just good at punches or kicks, but the combinations he used when he put it all together was a masterpiece to watch, and EXCITING!

Heck, Don't Take my word for it!
Watch some highlights yourself!

As a professional fighter he began his career in full-contact fighting in the early 70's and retired in 1996 with over 150 professional kickboxing and boxing matches, including 5 World Kickboxing Titles and World Shootboxing.

As a professional fighter, he won various titles including the WKA Middleweight World Title with a first round knockout of Donald Tucker on 12 June 1987.
