On saturday we had a full contact Kickboxing seminar with Tennessee and Leigh randall. Tennessee is one off the top full contact fighters in the world and fights for the WAKO GB team. The power she generates and the skill she demonstrates is amazing. Tennessee has been coached the whole time by her Father Leigh who was showing us their regime, tactist and skills today
They took the kids class first and then a two hour adults session. Both classes were shown the importance of guard and gnerating power from the shoulders and hips as well as footwork and timing. It was a great seminar and everyone was buzzing after. the kids loved the game of steal the headgurd and the adults enjoyed the line work and in line sparring at the end. the skill and dedication of both Tennessee and Leigh is evident in their teaching, demonstrating and perfornance in the ring and it was a priviledge to have them at our club.
We also went for a cheeky Nandos after. :)
Just a few of us at the finals of the Superleague today but great fighting from BKO. Little George got to the final and despite throwing some good reverse punches had to settle for silver today. George showed his spirit by coming back and scoring after a hard kick to the face. Michelle entered the Ladies light con. Ladies advanced and inter sections. Her fighting is going from strength to strength in both Disciplines where she is matching top fighters. Michelle's combinations were flying in the light con section where she reached the final. Against a very tough opponent she worked her jab well and got into the fight but was out pointed and took silver.
The points section saw some great movement and an awesome defensive jumping backfist .
Liz showed her skill in the light con section. we all know she has boundless stamina, but her superior technical and strategic work today made her unstoppable and a convincing winner. She also is showing great understanding of distance and movement in her points fighting today. Liz was also crowned Grand champion to add to her gold.
George's preparation for the WAKO European championships in Greece this month is looking good after today's performance. Strong blitzes and reverse punches have been addded to his fighting as well as improved vision which secured him first place in the senior section.
Great results, but more importantly great improvement from everyone.

Back from a packed Chessington tournament with a high standard throughout. Some big round robin categories with a lot of our fighters having 6 fights. Well done all BkO fighters. really saw an improvement in fighting and attitude today. Well done also those who were fighting for the first time. Technique of the day goes to Robbie's jumping defensive side kick to the head! Fighter of the day was Tianna who attacked and attacked with great heart. Tyler too had to compete with huge opponents who were at least 5 years older than him. Rossi also scored with a blitz! Mitch won her first tournament.Too many great performances to mention here but a great team effort. Well done

3rd place in Flanders after a battle in the semis. Coming back from 7 points down to level it over 2x2mins. Then an extension of 1 min finally losing after sudden death. Not at my sharpest, but it's a start for the Euros. George fought well in the teams for 3rd place. He is suffering from illness and fatigue. Nothing some rest won't cure.
