Dom boxing bout

Fight Team Leeds 2018 June

We attended the Strike Series event K1 & Kickboxing show in Leeds this June. Nicely run show with the largest chandelier you’ve ever seen.

Four of the team were competing on the show and training camp was a gruelling 8 weeks that paid off.

Fight Team Leeds – Alfie

Alfies knockout shot

Alfie Lewis – was first up for his second K1 kickboxing bout. Round 1 could have been scored either way, both fighters went 100% and it was hard to score.

For round 2 the corner crew gave Alfie some guidance, he went back in and knocked out his opponent with a round kick to the head. Watching him execute the knockout shot was no different than watching him in training. He simply applied the training drills and game plan and boooom.

Fight Team Leeds – Billy

Win for Billy

Billys second show, he fought a tough K1 Kickboxing fight. It went all three rounds though he dominated them all, it was a battle.

His opponent was up for a fight and he was no push over. But in the end the judges scored it a unanimous win for Billy. Heavy hits from both fighters.

Fight Team Leeds – Tom

Loss for Tom

Tom fought a fantastic K1 Kickboxing fight, very technical and a great attitude. Sadly he got knocked out in the second round but overall Toms fight showed a great mix. Technique, posture, ring craft, aggression accuracy. It was all there and a true pleasure to watch.

He landed so many well timed shots, knees, kick punches. Everything set up, everything followed up.

Happy days, a fine loss

Fight Team Leeds – Dom

Doms first boxing bout a draw

Well this was feisty and very exciting. Doms first boxing bout and what fun he had. Tough tough opponent, really swinging some bombs and taking some punishment well.

I’ll not mention the floss dancing Dom seemed to be doing.

All three rounds were like a Rocky movie, the crowd were going insane, the mix of technique and fight brawl mash up were such fun to watch.

The judges scored it a draw and we were all happy with the outcome.

Oh and grappling, we did that too, oh and MMA

Kickboxing Fight Team – Out In Leeds

Firstly thanks to Fightstar and thanks to all the opponents we matched up with.

The team were out at the weekend sporting the colours and representing well.

Six of the team competed in both K1, MMA and grappling

Ash, currently our youngest member had a great fight with a good matchup.

Kickboxing Fight Team – Mixed Martial Artists

Most of our team compete in various arts and Sunday was a great example of that.

Jumping from a Kickboxing K1 comp into an MMA comp or from a Grappling comp into a K1 comp is pretty normal for our crew.

The team were also willing to stand in at any opportunity for fighters that had no match ups which as a coach makes me very proud. Its all for the fun of the sport, no ego’s just fun and the pure enjoyment of combat and testing oneself.

Kickboxing Fight Team – Missed Opportunities

Think about it, your learning to fight and your in a room with 150 people looking to do the same.

If you get offered the opportunity why would you say no?

Of course, if you’re injured then take a seat. But if your fit and no excuses then take them when you can.

Were talking interclub level here, so the set up is geared towards learning and competing safely. These are not Rocky Balboa car crashes.

Kickboxing Fight Team – Sparring sessions

The interclubs we take our novice fighters to, like this one Fightstar, a well run show aimed at giving novices some experience. The idea is to build confidence and not destroy it on your first outing.

The interclubs are like sparring session that you would normally do in the club., But you are in a new town, new faces, a crowd and an opponent you have never met.

It’s all aimed at building you up
