We are proud to say that the TKO Academy will be the only Kickboxing gym in the South East of England who will this week be competing at the prestigious KUMITE event in Norwich. The event is presented by Internet TV channel MA ACTION.COM and will feature not 1 but 4 members of our team.
George Hennon currently unbeaten in 6 fights will take part in the KING BOXING Next Generation 4 man knockout tournament with 3 of the best young fighters around who will compete for the first prize of £250 sponsorship from King Boxing. The other 3 fighters are Steve Raybould from Cleveland KB, the current EFK British Champion, Idris Tabrezi from the Black Dragon gym who is the current WAKO British Champion and Keith Hamilton a top fighter from Ireland. A fantastic line up and sure to be George’s toughest test to date.
Kay Sumner takes part in an international contest with Kerrie O’Hanlon from Ireland, Patric Halforty faces Callum Meeks from Norwich and just recently added to the bill is Harry Hennon whose opponent at this time is still to be named.
We are pleased to say over 30 members of the Academy are due to make the journey to support the team with us having booked 2 buses, however if you cannot make the trip you can follow their progress LIVE on the night as the event is broadcast FREE at www.maction.com
Good luck to all the team.
