Hands down Feb 2017

BKO//CHESSINGTON

Another great day out for bko everyones fighting attitude on top form and massive massive improvement from everyone.

first up was jamie who showed great timing with his reverse punch throwing dummies and blitz's. we now have a strong style to work with to ensure more wins. had some strong timings with his reverse punches but at times lost his head and started running at the fighter. but overall Jamie is improving so quickly.

then we had robbie who drew one of the strong hands down boys (someone who beat him by 10 points last year) this time the fight ended 2-2 a very even fight although i saw robbie land a jumping side kick to the body that wasnt counted, but that doesn't bother me as robbie's attitude in training and fighting is incredible and it is now showing on the matts. after this fight robbies injury to his shoulder stopped him from fighting the other fights but i strong performance.

next up was rossi who has found his fighting side. pacing up and down the matt and was very focused, landed a beautiful blitz, huge improvement in attitude skill and general fight. just need to tighten up his tactic and he will be countering this fighters easily. he was unlucky not to place but was definitely one to beat in the section. now he must carry out the same attitude into his training and i would expect robbie and rossi to be meeting in the final after taking out the world!!! :P

Elizabeth Ferioli was up next with a very tough continous fight. she followed tactics perfect and throwing some powerful shots (which doesn't surprise anyone) she found her feet with this fight and with a bit more time shall be victorious. timing is growing leaps and bounds!! 2nd place for liz

Ashley Williams's turn next. very focused slightly nervous but after 30 seconds of his first fight his footwork and pure class of technique and attitude shone through. both fighters much taller than him but he used the space well to close the gap and our time them. a few wild choices of kicks but most shots landing clean and connected (a few shots i wouldn't like to be taking) a great confidence boost and a well deserved win! 1st place for ashley

next up was George who seemed to have tired legs (ON YOUR TOES!!!! ON YOUR TOE!!!!) but used his timing attitude and drive to win all his fights and take 1st place. it was good to see George win as he wanted it so badly. we are working on your legs strength an fitness and soon you will b taking even more first places. few techniques we need to tighten up as well but this will all come with time. a natural fighter :)

back up for more was Elizabeth Ferioli for points. her points fighting had grown incredibly since training with us and its brilliant to watch a continous fighter use her strength and it to work. this first fight showed this with such a strong straight punch to the face. her second fight was a draw and had to fight for 1st place which when to extra time. such a close fight but just came short. not bad for someone with jet lag!! 2nd place in points for liz

Robert Payne AKA mr inappropriate was up next. he was looking sharp and had a strong stance. he started blitzing slightly too high but when he found his distance it was plain sailing to 1st place. with more matt time potential and very strong fighter for the country.

hot from watford open Ben Ralph's turn was up. listening to instructions well and performing is tactics well. we need to get him crossing his feet when he blitz's but he beat all of his opponents using his great timing. he was not flustered by anyones moves and deserved a 1st place :) keep it up ben

Fighter of the tournament maggie brown was finally up. to many people they would just see her scoring kicks, but she used many tactics with her kick, countering, changing levels, pulling kicks short and blitzing. she fought all three of her fights differently apply pressue on some and showed patience with others. while kicking she was lining he hands up and most of the time was first to score with her hands after the kick. she (like her brothers) had her eyes on first place and was willing to fight anyone for it. timing tactics and technique was strong and won a much deserved 1st place

last but not lease we had a Paul Dogzy Corio Vinnie Turner and Mark Watson in a section with another two fighters.

Paul Dogzy Corio had some tired legs but after 2 years out cam back strong. only turned his head a few times in some points he started tightening up his tactics, working is front arm. using his reach well and taking a 3rd place not bad for the first tournament in 2 years. congrats paul just need to tighten up the guard and work the front arm

Mark Watson showed how much he has developed his feet were moving and was reading his opponent well (it doesn't help that vinnie and paul at double his height) but great attitude and the best i have ever seen him fight. great timing on the reverse punch just need to fight different angles when fighting massive giants so you dont run into their front arm

Vinnie Turner after a strong start at the watford open found his front arm using it as a jab, once his opponent starts to try to block his jab he can us his main reverse punch tactic. its working great and he is questioning himself less. an all round improvement for vinnie and a good warm up for the british nationals. 1st place for vinnie

1st place - vinnie, rob, ben george, maggie and ashley
2nd place -- liz x 2 
3rd place -- paul

but amazing fighting from the rest of the team (and im not just saying that generally massive improvement and deserves to be placing keep it up!)
robbie, rossi, mark and jamie.

please let me know if iv forgotten anyone im doing this from memory and im tired :P

well done bko love the team 
GO BKO!
