PANTHEON 9

SATURDAY 28th NOVEMBER 

HASTINGS COLLEGE

This was a great evening which saw Kicks Fighters Tanith Colburn getting into the ring for her debut Full Contact Fight, and Ron Tse fighting his Second Fight under K1 Rules. Both fighters had trained very hard for this, and were fit and focused.

Tanith Colburn was against Nimh Waring (Assassins Gym) fighting over 3 x 2 Minute Rounds at 61kgs. A long term student with Kicks Tanith had brought along a Enthusiastic and Excited Crowd of Kicks Supporters which makes such a difference for the fighter going into the ring. This was a great fight with both women giving it 100%. Tanith successfully closed the distance between her and her taller opponent through out the fight, and though she is a very skilful and powerful kicker spent more time staying in close and working her hands. We saw the trademark jumping punch, and when using her strong push kicks these had effect. A great first fight and first win against a very worthy opponent, and even more special for Tanith as it was her Birthday!

Ron Tse was against Sam Squires (Fighting Tigers) over 3 X 2 Minute Rounds K1 Rules. Sam Squires as the hometown boy came out very strong in that first round, and it showed Ron’s durability, fitness, and steel jaw that he withstood this sustained attack. The second round saw Sam tiring and Ron’s superior fitness coming into play as he caught his opponent with very strong straight shots and also used the knee to better effect. The third round saw Ron in his element pushing forward and his opponent very tired. A very clear last round to Ron, and a very exciting fight to watch as it went from a very strong start from Sam to a very strong finish from Ron. Ron lost this fight on a split decision which we had no argument with, and straight away Ron was keen to arrange a rematch, and probably would have had it on the night if he’d had his way! This is a fight that looks likely to happen further down the line in 2016, and will be one to look out for.



 

ISKA NATIONAL KICKBOXING CHAMPIONSHIPS 2015

RMINGHAM
SUNDAY 22ND NOVEMBER 2015

Kicks Instructor Shane Kent took Kicks Fighters Jamie Brown (14 Years) and Sam Campbell (10 Years) up to this knock out style day tournament. Both Juniors coming into this competition in the K1 Section were coming off a previous loss in Kickboxing, and this was a great incentive for these young talents to come out very sharp with the initial bell, and to finish their rounds strong, leaving nothing to chance.

Jamie Brown won both his fights in the Under 60 kg Section and 13 – 17 Years Age Group, and came away with a Gold Medal. Sam Campbell had three fights in his section, and finished with a Silver Medal in the Under 39 kg and Under 12s. Both now qualify to fight for ISKA England at the ISKA World Championships held in Stuttgart, Germany 18.05.16 – 22.05.16

Well done Jamie and Sam!

CYCLONE FIGHT NIGHT

24TH OCTOBER 2015

CIVIC HALL, BLACKSHOTT GREYS.

This ISKA Sanctioned Show was put on by Bill and Lisa Shelton of SXF Gym, and it was a pleasure to be part of it. Massive congratulations toJamie Brown and Ron Tse for both putting on fantastic displays of Kickboxing and K1 at this event. It wasn't to be Jamie's night in terms of results, but what a close fight between him and Joe Shelton who have met over the years in Light Continuous Kickboxing, and in K1, and Jamie winning all three previous fights.

The five round bout saw Joe start sharp and strong, but Jamie coming into his own as the fight progressed. The result a win to Joe Shelton on a majority decision. Jamie as always showed his professionalism and maturity in defeat, and no doubt these two will meet again later down the line.

Ron Tse was firing on all cylinders for three explosive rounds without a pause for breath. A unanimous win for him against his very game and tough opponent Wayne Grey ( 5 Elements Gym).

WTKA European Open Championships

Sunday 26th April
The International Hall
Pond’s Forge
Sheffield



An early start for the Brown Family and Instructor Shane Kent which saw them leaving Brighton at 4am to get to Sheffield for the Weigh In for this Open Competition hosting a range of disciplines through the large area covered.
In Jamie’s Category of 13-14 Year Olds Under 58Kgs K1 Rules there was only himself and one other entrant so Jamie was straight through to the final over 3 x 1 Minute Rounds against Adel from Assassin’s Gym. 
Jamie got kneed in the groin early on in the first round, and was unable to fully recover from this until the third round.  He fought very well against an experienced opponent, but lost the decision.  The first three competitors in any category at this event automatically qualify to attend the World Open Championships in Spain in November, so well done to Jamie.br>
