Kickboxing Reports


Night of Full Contact, K1 and White Collar Boxing

On Sat 21st Feb Kicks Fighter Jamie Brown was in action at the IKF Sanctioned “Total Combat” at Northwood Leisure Centre, Chatham, Kent.
These shows are put on by Promoter and IKF Representative Colin Payne of TKO Gym. The Centre was packed to capacity with a fantastic atmosphere and a great line up of fights. Jamie was fighting Joe Shelton (SFX Gym) over 3 x 1.5Min Rounds of Junior K1. This was a keenly anticipated fight between two aspiring Juniors with both national and international experience.

The first round was close with both fighters being slightly cautious and sounding the other one out. A warning was given to Jamie’s opponent by the referee for throwing Jamie as this is not allowed in K1 rules.

In the second round Jamie stepped his pace up and was starting to control the ring and get his combinations in. A strong knee to the body hurt his opponent. This was followed by a further warning to Shelton who threw Jamie again. Jamie continued to press forward and had got his opponent in the corner throwing strong leg kicks. As he went to use his knee, he was again illegally thrown by his opponent. Due to the nature of this last throw, and the potential damage that could have been inflicted Shelton was disqualified, and Jamie’s hand was raised as the winner.

Jamie was pleased with his performance but would have liked the fight to have gone the distance with Shelton. Shelton’s corner were also not happy with their fighter and his performance that evening. Both camps talked that evening and so we are delighted that promoter Carl Denne (HKA) is able to rematch this bout on March 21st at “Fight Night 4” at Hastings Centre. We feel sure that this will be a great re-match between two aspiring young fighters, and will be fought under proper K1 Rules.


Rampage – Light Continuous Kickboxing

Saturday 29th November

Swallows Leisure Centre

Sittingbourne Avenue, Kent

Kicks Fighters and Trainers had a good day at the Rampage Light Continuous Kickboxing Show put on by Chass Wingrove and Paul and Zoe Londt Wiffen. This was the first time we have attended one of these events. It was very well run with a good atmosphere; nice mix of clubs; good number of fights; and the level of contact was kept light continuous. We were told prior to the event that hard techniques would not be scored and this was adhered to. Our four fighters all gave their usual 100% and had a great day whether they won or lost. Thank you to those who came to support – This always makes a big difference to our fighters and makes it more of a club event.

K1 World Open Amateur Championships

On September 13th Kicks Fighter Jamie Brown took part in the K1 World Open Amateur Championships held as part of the Strength and Combat Show at the London Soccerdrome. This is the first event of it’s kind to be held in this country with K1 Legends Ernesto Hoost and Peter Aerts in attendance, and an estimated audience of over 2,000 people.  The fights were 3 x 1 Minute Rounds with 30 Second Break. Jamie fought Abdo Toma from Italy in the semi final, and Linus Klevenskogfrom Sweden in the final. Jamie dominated both fights. His timing and variation of techniques - going from strong leg kicks to accurate placement of punches and good use of the side kick made him stand apart from his opponents. The unified decisions of all three judges saw Jamie Brown receiving the accolade of K1 World Open Amateur Champion in the 13 – 14 Years (Under 54Kgs Section). Jamie is looking very strong and focused for his next step of World Domination at his weight in the Unified World Martial Arts Championships in Italy at the end of October.

Kicks George “The Hammer” Kenly V Mitch Neale (FCA)

26th July 2014


Sanctioned: IKF

Venue: Sussex Coast College, Hastings

This was Junior Full Contact Kickboxing over 3 x 1.5 Minute Rounds.

A well matched fight between these two young men with George up against a strong opponent in Mitch Neale from Freestyle Combat Academy.

George used his awkward side kick, quick hands and good movement to keep his opponent at range. The Kick was on target but Mitch Neale was happy to trade with George throughout the fight, and tried for a strong finish in the final round.  George had done enough throughout the fight to secure the win on the judges card. A good rematch for the future.

Kicks Fighters with Instructors Shane Kent, Stitch Sayers (Eastbourne) and Tiffany Williams had a very good day at Battle of Kent 20.

This very well organised event had a bit of a later start than normal due to the breakdown of the truck carrying the ring, but once this was sorted and the event kicked off it all ran very smoothly with the final 64th fight at 3pm!

We had 10 fighters with five of them being novices: Junior Charlie Roberts (EB), Cadet Paige Gilbert (Btn), and  Adults Daniel Flynn (Btn), Andrew Millard (Sussex Uni) and Chris Bath (EB). They all gave 100%, and we look forward to seeing their return to the ring in the Autumn.

Kicks Cadet Fight team were firing on all cylinders.  Jamie, Brown, George Kenly and Adam Stubbs all showing excellent ring craft skills, accurate shots, and all coming away with well deserved wins.  Adam Stubbs, in what was now his fifth fight was incredibly sharp and focused and despite receiving an accidental knee in the first round which split his eyebrow remained focused and unperturbed to take the win. Rob Kenly was matched in a demonstration bout against Liam Wells ((Falcon Gym) who is fighting next month for an Amateur World Title. Both these fighters gave the crowd a great display of Light Continuous Skills and looked to be enjoying themselves.  Junior Charlie Roberts in his first bout looks to be a prospect for the future as he battled it out against a very game fighter from the active G Force Gym. Natalie Gowing Beckwith had her first return to the ring after her little girl and it was great to see Natalie getting the win she’s worked so hard for.

SUNDAY MAY 18th 2014

After his brother George’s win at the ICO European Open Championships the previous week, Seasoned Light Continuous Kicks fighter Robert Kenly (17yrs) was all fired up for his first evening show and debut full contact fight. This was a night of amateur and professional Kickboxing and K1 fights.  This fight was a Junior Eliminator Bout for a British Junior Title in August. Robert was fighting Marley Mason from the well schooled G Force Gym. Marley is known on the circuit for his aggression and powerful hands so we had worked on Robert’s stamina; ringcraft skills; fast hands and powerful kicks.

Robert had a superb first round dominating the ring and catching Marley clean with a push kick to the head and a perfectly timed spinning side kick. The second round was much closer with Marley pushing forward with punches, but Rob continuing to show superior kickboxing skills and catching him with some nice body kicks and punches off to the side. The third round clearly went to Marley for aggression factor and punches.  We had scored the fight 29 – 28 in our favour, but the split decision score gave the bout in favour to Marley Mason.  This looks to be a great re-match in the foreseeable future.
