Brian Schwartz is no stranger to winning as his career gave him many wins including a Kickboxing World Title. Mr. Schwartz has now taken it to another level. Opening his beautiful Undisputed Gym is San Carlos, CA was just a portion of his plan. But he was no where near done. This past Friday night, he promoted is first Kickboxing show at the premier Fox Theater in Redwood City, CA and what a grand show!

The theater which seats about 1200 spectators was "Officially" Sold out by the 4th fight of the night and was packed to the ceiling as screaming fans showed their support for what very well could have signaled the re-emergence of the great sport of kickboxing in CA.

The fight card featured some of the up and coming fighters from across the state taking on fighters from as far away as Albuquerque, New Mexico. It was clear that the competitors were hungry to showcase their skills just as the fans were ready to see some great stand-up action...and they were not disappointed! Most of the 18 fights were well matched and the bouts action packed! Knockouts, ring girls and blasting music was all apart of this great night of fights!

Lets not forget the "Who's Who" list of guest at the event. Guests included Kickboxing Champions such as Javier Mendez, Francis "Footloose" Farley, Cung Le, Rudi Ott, Jongsanan Fairtex, Dan "Bam Bam" Stell, Bunkerd Faphimai (Fairtex), Johnny "Superfoot" Davis, Fernando "Cool" Callaros and George "TNT" Tsutsui just to name a few.

In addition to the Kickboxing & Muay Thai Champions, well known Strikeforce Promoter Scott Coker was also in attendance along with well known Pro Football player from the San Francisco 49ers and Oakland Raiders, Jerry Rice. It was with out a doubt, "The Place To Be" Friday night in the Bay Area!

Thanks Brian for an Excellent Show and giving the Sport of Kickboxing a much needed shot in the arm!

    This fight started off with hard slapping kicks and punches from Aguilar. Both fighters were in good condition as the fight progressed. Lor began to display more technical Muay Thai in the clinches and with knee strikes. However both fighters' clinches were clean with the knee strikes solid and clear. In the end it was Aguilar with more hands and kicks that won the split decision.
    Winner: Fernando Aguilar by Split Decision: 30-27, 28-29, 30-27.
    REFEREE: Greg Nelson
    JUDGES: Ralph Lee Judges: Brain Campbell, Rick Anderson, Mike Duffy.

    This was a classic fast paced 3 round amateur fight. The fighters came out very busy and determined to put the other down. Patneaude seemed to be the dominate driver of the fight with ring control and hard hits, however it was Hunter that had more poise and scored more shots for the win.
    Winner: Matt Hunter by Split Decision: 30-27, 29-28, 28-30.
    REFEREE: Ralph Lee
    JUDGES: Brain Campbell, Rick Anderson, Mike Duffy.

    First round was controlled by Martinez with slapping punches, leg kicks and body shots he was the initiator and landed lots of punches. Round 2 was closer, however it was Martinez with the more damaging punches and all around control. Round 3 goes to Paulson as Martinez seemed to slow down and Paulson found his groove making Martinez miss with timing and movement. Paulson looked great and put it all together to finish strong, but too little too late.
    Winner: Mario Martinez by Unanimous: 30-27, 29-28, 29-28
    REFEREE: Ralph Lee
    JUDGES: Brain Campbell, Peyton Russell, Mike Duffy

  4. IKF Amateur Kickboxing
    Hector Orozco, New Hope, Minnesota, USA, 5-0, Boxing, 0-1, 155.8, 5'8", 11-27-87, Rick Anderson, VS Cody Runquist, Aurora, Minnesota, USA, KB: 5-2, BX: 2-2, 164.2, 5'7", 6-18-91, Jim Yount,
    1st round It seemed as if Runquist was not fully warmed or ready to fight and entered the ring a little too casual. Orozco came out smoking and landed several punches that dropped Runquist for the first 8 count. He was a little shaky during the count but gained his composure and resumed the fight. Orozco again landed several punches following with a hard slapping roundhouse kick to the neck and jaw that dropped Runquist for the second time. With the heart and spirit of a fighter Runquist rose to fight but when referee Ralph Lee saw how unsteady he was he waved the fight to a close.
    Winner: Hector Orozco by TKO At 1:11 of round 1. REFEREE: Ralph Lee
    JUDGES: Brain Campbell, Peyton Russell, Mike Duffy.

  5. IKF Pro Muay Thai
    Troy Hill, Hinkley, Minnesota, USA, KB: 0-1, MMA: 23-9, 168, 5'11", 10-19-74, Self VS Adam Morin, Coon Rapids, Minnesota, USA, 4-1, 164, 5'10", 1-14-80, Chris Cichon.
    Both fighters began with respect for each other, cautiously feeling each other out as pros do. Hill initiated some wild kicks and really showed the style and aggression of an MMA fighter while Morin kept his Muay Thai poise and strong stance while waiting for his opportunity. That opportunity came early in the second round. Morin landed a crushing leg kick after several well placed leg kicks. Hill showed the damage by limping and grimacing. Morin seized the moment and rushed in for a clinch. He then delivered several knee strikes to the same damaged leg of Hill. At this point Referee Ralph Lee waved the fight over and Hill had to be helped out of the ring.
    Winner: Adam Morin by TKO at 47 seconds of round 2. REFEREE: Ralph Lee
    JUDGES: Brain Campbell, Rick Anderson, Mike Duffy.

  6. IKF Pro Muay Thai
    Nathan Bagby, Fort Worth, Texas, USA, 3-1, 171, 5'11", 11-18-82, Francisco Sanchez, VS David Morin, Blaine, Minnesota, USA, 2-0, 169.2, 5'10", 2-13-82, Chris Cichon
    Early in the fight Bagby looked more the experienced Muay Thai fighter with his good stance, calm and poise. Morin was more the straight forward brawler type. In the first round, it was Morin's strength that overcame Bagby with a roundhouse kick to the ribs. It didn't appear the kick was that hard, however Bagby had to take a knee for an 8 count. In round 2, Morin tried to build upon the damage to Bagby's ribs with heavy shots of punches and kicks. Bagby survived the round. In round 3 things began to slow down because Bagby finally landed some effective shots and both fighters grew cautious. But it was still Morin that won the round. In round 4 Babgy figured out his game plan and was able to counter Morin with better timing, stance, and patience. Round 5 was the best round for both fighters and for the crowd. The round was more technical and even. Both fighters landed leg kicks, punches and knees from the clinch but again it was Morin's strength that came out on top.
    Winner: David Morin by Unanimous decision: 40-45, 49-46 and 50-45, 45-49.
    REFEREE: Ralph Lee
    JUDGES: Brain Campbell, Rick Anderson, Mike Duffy.

IKF Point Kickboxing©
Expanding!


It should come as no surprise to many of you who frequent these and the IKF pages that IKF Point Kickboxing is taking off as many from around the world are getting excited about this competition. IKF Point Kickboxing is hot and finding many new fans!

Most recently Iran has caught the bug and they are extremely excited about participating in these semi contact events "In fact, I think that many of the competitors here will really enjoy it as they prefer not to get broken up as many in the full contact arena do" says newly appointed IKF Kickboxing and Point Kickboxing Representative Amir Mosadegh of Iran. (Right) He continued "I feel that we can really make IKF Point Kickboxing huge here and throughout other Asian countries and I'm excited about the opportunity to do just that!"

The Iranian IKF Point Kickboxing Division will be making necessary changes to what they have been doing to accommodate the IKF/PKB version. For example all PKB events will take place on a matted floor as oppose to a boxing ring and the definite NO KNOCKOUT rule will be strongly enforced as well. Mr. Mosadegh had been studying the rules associated with the IKF/PKB and plans to follow them. In their most recent event, they had over 400 competitors in a similar semi contact event which will now be call IKF Point Kickboxing.

IKF & ISCF NEWS!



New Promotion Making A
BIG SPLASH!

Full Contact Inc.


Although today's economy may be holding some people back, the "Sport Fighting Business" for IKF and ISCF is still going STRONG! Adding to the already busy sanctioning schedule is a new Promotional Company based out of California, Full Contact Inc.. ( www.FullContactInc.com )

Full Contact Inc.. has already committed to promoting 7 MMA and Kickboxing events already for 2009 and has created a clothing line as well called, "Full Contact Gear" and "Bam Bam Gear".

The Founders of Full Contact, Inc. are IKF and ISCF Representative Dan Stell (L) and Jerry "Chach" Quinn (R).

Dan, known to many as "Bam Bam" started his Martial Arts training in 1975 at the age of 9. Along with being the Head of Officials for the IKF and a Representative, Referee, and Judge for the ISCF, he is also an Official Referee and Judge for the California State Athletic Commission. When we don't see him in the ring as head Referee for a Kickboxing bout he is in the ring as Referee for Pro Boxing on broadcast such as ESPN, Fox Sports, PPV, Telemundo and other Networks. He is also a Judge for both Pro and Amateur Kickboxing and Boxing and a member of the State of California Martial Arts Board. One thing that sets Dan apart from other officials is that he not only oversees the rules and regulations of fight sport as an official but he has "Walked the Walk" himself. He was a 4-time Kickboxing Champion (Before the IKF was founded) and is a 5th Degree Black Belt in the Kajukenbo System. As a Kickboxer, he won all but 2 of his bouts by KO or TKO and in doing so earned his nickname, "Bam Bam!"

However his biggest accomplishment was his work in co-founding the IKF Kickboxing organization with current IKF President Steve Fossum in August of 1992. The first IKF event was promoted in August that same summer and featured several of Dan's Kickboxing students who would later become some of the first IKF Champions.

Dan was the person who designed the first IKF logo/crest before the logo was redesigned by Graphic Arts designer Toni Foster of Foster Graphics who later became Toni Fossum, Mr. Fossum's wife.

Both Stell and Fossum created the foundation of the IKF from their knowledge and experience as past Kickboxers (Over 100 bouts between them and multiple titles), Trainers of Champions, and Kickboxing Event Promoters. In July of 1996, Dan stepped down as IKF Vice President to pursue other desires. One of them was to step back into the fighting ring again. During this time he fought 2 more kickboxing bouts before officially retiring as a fighter and returning to the IKF in 1998 as Head of Officials.

Jerry (Chach) Quinn also has a background in martial arts and the fight sports. He is a certified fight judge for both the IKF and ISCF and has quiet a martial arts background. He holds a 5th Degree Black Belt in Kajukenbo Karate, a 2nd Degree Black Belt in Tang Soo Do, and a 2nd Degree Black Belt in Shotokan. He is an FBI Certified Defensive Tactics Instructor, and a California Certified Peace Officers Standard of Training, Defensive Tactics Instructor. Chach served as a San Francisco Bay Area Law Enforcement Officer for 14 years, has been a SWAT team member and Defensive Tactics Instructor to 4 Law Enforcement Agencies and has been teaching combat methods for over 20 years. He has experience in putting on events such as concerts, speeches and specialty activities for decades.

Chach Quinn's E-mail address is Chach@FullContactInc.com or his phone number is (707) 429-3130. For fight bookings, trainers and fighters should contact Dan Stell.

Guila Has Large PKB Tourney!
Some Kinks This Time...But Successful!
Saturday, February 28, 2009 - Antioch, California, USA


February 21st, 2009 must have been a full moon based on the turnout of this past weekends IKF Point Kickboxing Tournament in Antioch, California. Either way, one thing was for sure, there are a lot of kickboxing enthusiast out there who are still venturing in to discover IKF Point Kickboxing and we welcome them with open arms. Many of them are just now getting their first taste of IKF / PKB but to be honest some of them find there are adjustments that will need to be made in the gym before entering the event. Although there were some kinks in this event, different from others stellar events put on by the Guila Clan, it was a lot of fun!

Over all, most there enjoyed the usual action packed bouts and their were no serious injuries and, or knockouts as they are not allowed! Moreover, we would like to make clear that we also have no rules against fighters from the same club fighting each other. Since the event is an open tournament, we are never sure who will show up. Therefore, matching takes place the morning of the event. Moreover, since the eventt is one of semi contact, we encourage those who attend to be prepared to fight whom ever in their division....even if from the same club. However, with that being said, the IKF / PKB officials will do everything in their ability to keep fighters from the same club from fighting each other in the elimination round (s). However, for the sake of good competition for the fans that attend these events, we would like to encourage full participation even if some club members end up competing against each other for the sport or just bragging rights. :)

Yes, those associated with IKF / PKB experienced some growing pains this past weekend and for this event the credits must go to the efforts of Mr. Guila who actively invites other gyms to give the IKF / PKB a try and they oblige him.

Furthermore, we at IKF / PKB will monitor the cutoff for registration closer so that we can start the event as advertised to allow participants to better schedule their personal lives and, eating schedules etc.

We hope those who witnessed the difference and areas of improvements needed to continue to move us forward in the PKB also see the good in this type of semi contact competition and returned with a renewed spirit to participate. We at IKF certainly want all clubs and fans to know that they are appreciated but we must follow the rules especially those pertaining to contact. We will also stick with the semi contact and NO KNOCKOUT rules as this is the core for what this event is all about. It is the goal of IKF / PKB to continue to be an incubator for the sport of kickboxing. In saying that too, we at IKF / PKB will firmly evaluate all areas of concern for those that express them so that we can come up with solutions that are fair to all. In fact, we are clarifying the ruling below to make clearer for all in regards to the importance of divisions and matches being more fair. Forward March!

Special thanks to all of the officials and those who came up and told us how much they enjoyed the event and can't wait until the next one which is March 14th, 2009 in Santa Rosa, CA...more at www.IKFPKB.com FULL Results Coming Soon

"IKF Junior Light Contact"
February 22nd, 2009 - Galway, Ireland




The Galway Black Dragon Kickboxing Club hosted a Junior Kickboxing Event at the Oranmore Community Centre on Sunday and no less than 110 fighters took part in over 55 fights in three matted areas with each fighter having a two round contest and gaining invaluable experience in their chosen sport.

The tournament was very well attended by the parents of the kids also who travelled from Cavin, Donegal, Lurgan, two clubs from Limerick, Kilkenny, Waterford, Thurles, Tralee, Kinvara Black Dragon, Tuam Black dragon and of course Galway Black Dragon. The tournament started at 12.30 pm and was finished just after 3:PM which was a very welcome early finish for the further afield fighters such as Tralee, Waterford, Lurgan and Donegal and Promoter Pete Foley wishes to thank all coaches, fighters, parents, referees, judges, timekeepers, set up/down staff etc. for unselfishly giving up their Sunday to give their Junior fighters a day out in Galway. Pete also wants to thank John James Furey for the use of the Community Centre, Tony Allen of Oranmore Judo Club for the use of his mats, The Order Of Malta (who thankfully weren't too busy on the day), Claudio Baranyai for the use of his sound system and anybody else who helped make the tournament a success.

The next big promotion for the Black Dragon Club will take place in the Black Box Theatre on March 14 when Eric Daly from Galway will take on James Dunphy from Kilkenny for the official IKF 64.5 Kilo Senior All Ireland Full Contact Kickboxing Title over a scheduled five rounds. This will be the third time that these two warriors will have met and with a win apice, this is a rubber match that they will both want to win especially as the IKF Belt is at stake.

Daly, who hails from Gort and travels in to the Galway gym an average four times per week, took Silver at the World Championships in Italy late last year and defeated Damian Renaud from Guadaloupe in the French Carribean at the Seasons Beatings show in the Black Box in December. The Title fight will be backed up with twenty two support bouts featuring Galway fighters taking on opponents from all accross the country and with a full bar available it should make for a cracking night out.
