By Steve Fossum, IKF / ISCF President:
Let me start off by saying that neither me, or anyone here at the IKF or ISCF is being paid for this article. In fact, the person I'm speaking about in this article will not even know it's been written until after it has been posted up here on the news page. The reason for this story came up in a conversation I had with a trainer last night that I will explain below. That being said, let's get to the story...

It was the 2007 IKF World Classic. We had several vendors in house, but one seemed to be off on the side, and not many knew what he was selling, let along how Great a product he had to offer. However, if you were someone like multi time IKF Tournament Champion, and IKF Amateur World Champion Scott Clark (Right) YOU KNEW WHAT HE HAD WAS AMAZING!

When I first saw the products, I must say, I was AMAZED!

Clark had a little pain in his shoulder after winning his second IKF Tournament (And one of MANY Others) he was fitted up with one of the amazing custom shoulder straps. (Right).

Last night I was at a weigh-ins for tonights IKF Kickboxing event in Fairfield, California and saw one of the trainers hobbling on crutches (Dan Black). We talked about his injury and once done, continued on with the nights work. Then I saw one of his students bringing him a plastic bag full of ice to put on his knee. I watched him place it on his knee and also watched it slide to the left, slide to the right and of course, watched the ice melt into water that fell to the floor. As I watched, I kept thinking about one thing... Pro Series Ice Packs!

I explained to him about an amazing product that I learned about at our 2007 IKF World Classic Tournament. I told him it was the best thing I had ever seen in regards to Ice Therapy and the way it worked was beyond a doubt, the best thing for ANY athlete whether trying to heel an old injury, new injury or just ice their body after a fight or good workout.

Enough of what I have to say, here is how how the experts explain it on his web page;

Pro Series Ice Therapy is an ice wrap that provides a cold therapy solution for injuries to athletes and non-athletes alike. These wraps are used by physical therapists, athletes, post-surgical patients, and every day people who become injured. Pro Series Ice Therapy uses an ice bag with a screw top combined with a neoprene wrap to provide firm, consistent pressure to maximize healing. The principle behind this is that real ice decreases pain, swelling, and inflammation best. The unique design of these ice wraps makes for easy compliance of a recovery regime because they are easy to use, they stay in place, and you can always get ice anywhere you go. In addition to treating injuries from everyday physical work, Pro Series Ice Therapy also specializes in treating injuries from baseball, basketball, football, tennis, volleyball, soccer, Kickboxing, Mixed Martial Arts, Boxing, hockey, swimming, running, and waterpolo.

Here are just a few of his products below.
