SOUTH EAST REGIONAL CANCELLED
The timing just wasn't right for the South East Regional this year.
Previous Regional Promoter James Corbett could not get a venue in Valdosta outside the 45 day mark of the 2006 IKF World Classic. The reason for this is to avoid losing fighters that may get KO'ed at the regional that would still want to go to the WC. There is a mandatory 45 day medical suspension on a fighter that is "KO'ed" and a 30 day suspension on fighters that are TKO'ed.
Knowing this, Mr. Corbett turned the promotion over to Mr. Rob Blandenburg of Augusta. Mr. Blandenburg got it late and didn't have enought time to promote it. With only a few fighters registered, Mr. Blandenburg made the decision to cancel the event. ALL fighters who paid a registration fee to Mr. Blandenburg will have your fees refunded 100%.
For fighters from the South East that want a higher seeding at the 2006 IKFWC, they can always go to Jeff Mullen's South Central Regional in Memphis Tennessee on the same date (June 10th) or to Will Smith's Central East Regional in North Carolina, also on the same date June of 10th. However, those in the South East do not have to go to any regional if they do not want to. They can register for the World Classic as direct walkovers at this page; HERE.
We hope this information is helpful and we hope to see you at the 2006 IKF World Classic this July.
