"Walkin The Walk! "2""

The following is an article By Dan Tharp for Grandmaster Magazine. Although the title is the same as the IKF Article below, it's a great view from the fighters side. We enjoyed it, we hope you do as well. Great Job Dan!


So what's it take to host a
USA National Amateur
Tournament?
Well, to start with,
how about
40 IKF
National Title Belts
at $165.00 each.
This event was
FIRST CLASS!

WALKING THE WALK : The fight world is filled with highs and lows. Few can know the high exultation of a hard fought victory or the incredible blow that a loss can bring to one who participates in the 'combat sports'. Those that give their sweat, blood and tears on a daily basis to their respective sports do so for various reasons. Few will know the rush and adrenaline of putting your body in a ring in front of hundreds of people who either want you to lose consciousness of cause such an event to your opponent. Time will slow down for your struggle in the ring and will barely be remembered afterwards without the aid of videotape. Many blows received will only be felt the next day when you awake. At the amateur level you may walk away with a trophy and a 10 second round of applause- if you win, and if you lose, only the consolation of having faced your opponent bravely and leaving nothing but your sweat in the ring. The slaps on the back and the 'ata boy' and 'good job' can only motivate a fighter so much. What is it that makes us what we are?

At the IKF / RINGSIDE ( International Kickboxing Federation) Amateur Nationals this past Labor Day weekend I had the opportunity to compete in the historic first legitimate amateur national kickboxing tournament that showcased the best fighters in the country. The tournament featured high kick, leg kick and Muay Thai divisions. The action was packed and furious. To get invited and then win a national title is a highly emotional event and will represent the highest achievement that an amateur can receive in his or her kickboxing career. There are no cash prizes. No multi-million dollar contracts awaiting the winners. That is not why I competed and would wager that the other competitors felt the same. This became very clear as I warmed up for my fight.


Dan Rawlings
after his victory with his
Champion Award Gloves from
RINGSIDE and Title Belt.

The fight started before I got in the ring. Every one intended to scout out their opponent at the weigh-ins. I did. My first fight was against the second seed. He happened to be a third degree black belt and owner of his own school and team. I think his second occupation was that of renegade biker. Not to worry, as you can never judge a book by its cover. The weigh-in was a relief ( I could now eat and drink like a normal person !) and was followed by a rules meeting with the IKF President, Steve Fossum. At the close of the meeting he elaborated the motto for this national tournament which was 'Walk the Walk'. This phrase was repeated many times throughout the weekend. The motto was chosen in response to those who hide behind their past laurels or ficticious credentials and self-inspired titles. The call went out far and wide for all the best amateurs to come and literally fight for the championship. The faces were game and the atmosphere was thick. Glares and stares came from all areas of the room. Sure there was some light-heartedness, but usually from the non-competitors or coaches. The meeting was filled with some noted champions in the fight world. Moti 'The Moose' Horenstein ( of UFC notoriety ) and now the IKF Pro Super Heavyweight Muay Thai World Champ. ( The man is very large LOL.) C.B Bunkholt from the far north.( KICK light-weight champ). Duke Roufus of the Phetnoi gym and past IKF Super Heavyweight Muay Thai Champ. And Kansas City's own Doug 'The Unchained Bull' Freeman ( KICK Welterweight World Champ and Muay Thai North American champ ). With all these athletes and trainers who had accomplished so much, everyone knew that they would have to' Walk the Walk' to leave with a title.

After the meeting we went to back to the Harvey's Casino where the event was to be held. Dinner was late and sat heavy on my stomach. The stares and feeling out continued even while eating dinner. Our group led by Doug Freeman kept our heads in the game while maintaining some light-hearted conversation. This is the thing that has struck me as most difficult in the fight game - the management of your mental state. Waiting is a severe drain in the closing hours before the fight. Only those who have the experience of many fights can achieve any sort of stability and some say that they never quite can. I tried my best. We finally got to sleep at eleven or so. That was a complete failure. I awoke too many times to consider it a rest. Six o'clock arrived and a cold shower greeted me. Today was the day. I would either advance or my tournament would be over in a few hours. I had definitely come to fight. We returned to the Hotel buffet and I tried to fill my stomach but it was not very successful. The nerves were beginning to show. It was nine o'clock and time to get warmed up. We went to our assigned dressing room and I began to focus my mind on the task ahead. The stretches and warm-ups felt slow. (Fighting at 9:00 in the morning is not a usual ocurrance for me!) I was beginning to get the juices flowing when my opponent promptly brought his team into my dressing room. He proceeded to tell the gentleman next to me that he " thought today was a good day for some violence" and he "would prefer to fight on the sabbath, but this would do". This sort of thing is very unprofessional and it amused me enough to laugh out loud. But hey, you need to have a gimmick if you got some doubt. The countdown had begun and I finished my stretches and we moved into the warmups. I felt mentally strong but wondered if my body was going to cooperate with me. The time for the fight was close. As we were in the adjoining hallway I was reminded of the Greek General Nicias ,who appears in Thucydides' 'Peloponnesian War'. He is trying to rally his troops after a horrible defeat with hopes of winning an all or nothing victory. He concludes his speech by saying, "There are seldom dangers such as these, where you have nothing to lose if you fail and everything to gain if you win!". This was a comfort. I had come to fight and to win but if I were to fail, I had made the attempt to 'Walk the Walk'. It was time to fight.

Stepping into the ring can feel as good as being a rock star or it can leave one with the feeling of sticking your neck on the chopping block. I felt a little of both. This fight started out with a bit of a flurry from both parties. He caught me with a spinning backfist that was hard and accurate, but it wasn't deadly. I continued to push forward landing some of my own arsenal. In a fade away move he threw another one that landed directly on top of my head. This one made my legs quiver. I recovered and tuned into a front kick that knocked the wind out of me. I had to dig deep to stay in the game. I knew that he would probably throw his best stuff at the beginning, hoping to secure an easy win. Those hard training sessions with the medicine ball had payed off in spades. My air came back. The bell rang. I felt winded and thought the previous day of traveling and weight cutting had caught up with me. Round two saw some more fast paced action. But neither of us landed a telling blow. The third round felt the worst but I scored the most telling shots. On two different occasions my opponent wobbled against the ropes after eating my punches and kicks. But to his credit he fired back. I was feeling very tired and could never muster the energy to finish what I had started. The final flurry felt more like walking and punching through concrete than a fight. The bell rang. It was over. When the gloves had come off I knew that it had not been my best fight and would probably be my first loss. I found it in me to congratulate my opponent. When the scores were read, I had lost. Some booed and some cheered. My tournament was over. It was not the happiest feeling in the world but it was a lesson learned.

I had come to fight and to gain the experience of traveling and fighting under a lot of expectation and pressure. The effects of nerves and travel had played a part in my loss as well as my conditioning. As I watched the finals on Sunday, I knew that winning the tournament was possible. But as a fighter you have to want something bad enough to pay for it with blood, sweat and tears. No excuses, no whining. The preparation for the next fight will be looked at with new eyes. Hungry eyes. My previous wins could not motivate me like this loss. I had been beaten fairly. There was no use mooning over the loss. It was back to the gym the next week and we would take this training to a new and more powerful level.

This tournament allowed me to be brought to a new level of understanding of the fight game. Easy victories rarely move us to train harder. When your back is against the wall you realize what being a fighter is all about. It is about giving your BEST EFFORT no matter what obstacles are in front of you. If you want to fight, you got to 'Walk the Walk'.

It doesn't get any more "LEGIT" than this Kickboxing fans! The "Best of the Best" Amateur Kickboxers all at ONE EVENT to decide WHO were TRULY the Nations BEST Amateur Kickboxers! Oh, you say the BEST fighters weren't there because YOU or someone you know wasn't there? Sorry!!! That excuse isn't accepted after this weekends SUCCESS! If you THOUGHT you were truly one of the best, you should have found a way to be there to PROVE YOURSELF to everyone else that was there. Now you'll have to wait until next year, even if your excuse was "LEGIT". With that said, we can hardly wait to see more of you there at "Next Years" 2nd annual IKF RINGSIDE National Amateur Tournament. Oh yes... There will be another... and another...and another! This event is here to STAY!


A special thanks to Tournament host

Referee Dan Stell, Trainer Marshall Hamel,

Trainer & Fighter Ricardo Sanders,
& Trainer Duke Roufus

The word was clear the entire weekend. Those who were there, at Harveys Casino Hotel in Council Bluffs Iowa, USA for the 1st annual IKF RINGSIDE USA National Amateur Championship Tournament clearly had "Walked the Walk!" Nationwide, it's CLEAR there are too many amateurs that "CLAIM" to be the Nations best who hold some National title from an organization that's only known in their home state or region of the United States. Or a fighter who holds a title that several other fighters hold across the nation because the organization they fought for never keeps records of their amateur champions. But this wasn't true at Harveys Casino Hotel in Iowa, USA this last weekend. Those who TRULY wanted to see if they were TRULY the BEST among their peers worked hard to raise the money to make the trip to the National Championship Tournament in Iowa.

Now when we say "Raise the money" we don't mean fees to the IKF. We mean their travel fees such as gas or plane fare, hotel and meals. For there were no Registration fees to pay to the IKF for this first National Championship Tournament. Together the IKF RINGSIDE National Finals Tournament Team of RINGSIDE INC., Harveys Casino Hotel, Tournament Host Mick Doyle, the IAA and the IKF, the event they organized was second to NONE. The event had an Outstanding Venue, Top Class Title Belts for the Champions, Outstanding Equipment to use for each and every fight and all was organized like an Olympic event that ran as smooth as silk! Again, this was truly "THE" EVENT!

Some of you in the USA reading this choose not to attend for various reasons. Maybe you thought the event would be a wash, that there would be no competition or that it would be no big deal like the many other "SO CALLED" National Championships. Well everyone, for your information, as we just said, this event was "THE EVENT" for Every Amateur in the USA who wanted to be recognized as a TRUE National Champion! Those who attended this FIRST EVER True National Amateur Kickboxing Championship Tournament that included fighters from ALL OVER the United States, Sanctioned by a Legit Kickboxing Sanctioning body can now truly say that they have...

"Walked The Walk!"

Our praise goes out to tournament host Mick Doyle of Omaha Nebraska. ( An e-mail link has been given to this article for those looking to pass on your thanks to Mr. Doyle) Mr. Doyle took on the responsibility of helping the fighters, coaches, officials and guests attending the event find a hotel, restaurants as well as organizing all the events officials and various promotional expenses. We thank Harveys Casino Hotel Team Leaders, Verne Welch (Harveys Senior Vice President & General Manager), and Bill Orlando (Harveys Customer Development Manager) who supplied the venue facilities for Saturday and Sunday for FREE when other venues wanted thousands. Your support of this event and future events is Golden to all of us!

If we knew all their names, we would list them all, but there are so many individuals on Mick Doyle's promotional team that we just need to say THANK YOU to them ALL! For without their efforts, many of men and women would not have reached their dream of a National Finalist, let alone, a true National Champion.

We thank the efforts of those behind the scenes that many don't see that helped the event run so smooth that no one ever questioned the events timing. People such as our event Equipment Coordinator Steve Wiley who made sure all the fighters received the correct size and color of gloves along with headgear and shin pads, for without his efforts, such an event would have lasted DAYS!

We thank Vickie Laegeler of Z's Martial Arts in Lake In The Hills Illinois who assisted in finding the CORRECT title belt to give to our many title belt presenters throughout the Finals. Without her, we would have been searching for days.

To all of our event officials under the leadership of Dan Stell and Fred Fitzgerald who worked passionately to make sure the event was fare and safe for everyone. Judges, referees, timekeepers and kick judges. Even though they put in some long hours, their skills and judgement continued sharp as a needle until the end.

We thank Doctor Eric McKillican who kept all the fighters safe throughout the event with the support of our event paramedics. The courage of some of your decisions could have made a difference in a fighters future and we thank you for assuring them all a bright one.

To the trainers, some who travelled as far as 1,700 plus miles by van (HUMAN USMC Kickboxing Team, Camp Pendleton, California) who sacrificed their time, money and efforts to bring their fighters to the event in search of a dream, a goal, a victory. And for some, just to be a part of something so great was victory enough despite a loss, for they could walk proudly away knowing they truly "Walked the Walk", win or lose.

We thank the dedicated commitment to kickboxing excellence by John Brown and Joe Taylor of Ringside Inc. who have supported the IKF throughout the year. Our relationship has been successful for us all who believe in offering more quality to the sport of kickboxing. Ringside Inc. donation of quality equipment for all IKF events and their financial support of paying half the cost of over $5,000.00 in title belts and awards for this event along with the IKF proved their commitment is as good as GOLD! We look forward to many great years in the sport with the IKF and Ringside Inc. connection.

We truly expect next years event to draw double the amount of fighters and we hope to see you there next year to compete to be one of the Best of the Best amateurs in the USA so that you too can say as all these fighters below can, that you truly "Walked the Walk!"

So without further delay, here's the results of this weekends IKF / RINGSIDE USA National Amateur Championship Tournament and the many names of those amateurs who, won or lost, they truly "Walked the Walk!"
