BKO made a fantastic start to the 2014 CIMAC Superleague season at Windsor on March 16th, showing up in force, fielding an array of kids and adults from beginners to intermediate and advanced fighters, many making their competitive debuts.

First up on the day was the kid’s class represented by Hayden Corby, Ryan O’Grady and Emily O’Grady. Hayden and Ryan having fought so well in Dublin come into the their fights looking as sharp as ever, with Ryan just losing out on a place and Hayden securing 3rd place in his category. Emily also managed to secure 3rd place in her category after a close fight off against a very good opponent. The dedication and commitment to their training Ryan, Emily and Hayden have shown has really paid off and as a result all three already look serious contenders to place in the Superleague this year.

Next up was the adults with Vinnie Turner, Kat Dhillon, Shannon Feighery and Steve Enduro making their Superleague points fighting debuts in the Novices section. Vinnie started positively putting his opponent under pressure and despite the eventual loss, showed great promise for future tournaments.

Despite a cagey start, Kat got the measure of her opponent and finished strong to take the final points and despite the loss made a very good debut.

Shannon showed her grit and determination, pressuring her opponent well throughout her fight, however eventually just lost out.

Steve went on to the 3rd place BKO fight off with Dave Elsworthy and after a very close fight, just nudged the points to take the win.

Craig Ashford came away the big winner on the day showing an amazing display of focus and skill to win the Men’s Novice category.

Heather Chilcott, John Kiy and Steve Gribbins all competed in the continuous divisions which were extremely hard fought and competitive. Both Steve and John went out in the first round, with Heather winning her division and taking home the big gold medal.

Next Up came the Intermediate section with Andy Partridge, Rob Rivers and Paul Corio stepping up; with Paul losing out in the first round, Rob going on to take 4th and Andy coming 3rd overall. 

Heather Chilcott stepped back onto the mat again for her points round as did Debs Peploe, both missing out on the second round.

George Peploe came second in the open weight category with Ron Peploe and Steve O’Grady placing first and second respectively in the Executive Men’s Category.

All in all it was a fantastic day for BKO with lots of fighters across the divisions, all gaining valuable experience and seeing the fruits of all of their hard work and training pay off. Thanks also to all of those that came down to show your support for the fighters.

It is this support of each other that makes BKO such a successful club and an absolute joy to be a part of. There are still lots more competitions train for this year, so looking forward to seeing everyone back on the mat at club! #GoBKO
