BFKKO Exacting Standards

It is not very often you see an interclub run to such high standards, but as all the BFKKO officials are also top class WAKO officials I suppose it was to be expected.
It was also great to see that everyone was wearing good quality safety equipment with most of it been supplied by KO Pro one of the leaders in its field when it comes to safety. KO Pro is now he official supplier for WAKO GB and WAKO Pro GB ringsports, for the BFKKO and WFKKO and also for WOMAA for their ringsports too.
All our disciplines are actually fought in the ring on interclub day even points as the gyms we use are filled to brim with supporters just as yesterday was at Tim Nibletts new headquarters! (Nice gym Tim). A medal is given to all participants and we match as accurately as possible. Even at the times when one fighter may be slightly heavier the BFKKO's strict policies and refereeing skills make sure everyones safety is highly considered and monitored at all times.
Yesterday we were proud to welcome several of the BFKKO clubs, namely Falcon Martial Arts Mansfield (Who hosted the show), NEKA led by World Champion Wes Fagan, Falcon MMA Glyn Smith, Falcon Kick Jutsu Glyn Smith, Musashi Kickboxing Alexis Bolsunovs, Black Falcon Kickboxing, Karate, K1 and Light Continuous led by Kerry-Louise and Cris. Sensei Adele Terry led DEMMA in Professor Dave Terrys absence.
Several styles were on show. The BFKKO runs WAKO rules for all their shows and also involves all their styles including the new Amateur MMA system recently developed by WAKO also.
Competition was fair and unbiased, with all the children taking away so much from the competition in as far as experience and starting out in competition fighting and the thrill which comes with it.
The Adults also enjoyed the competitive spirit and it allowed the coaches to assess them further for the big stage when they step into the ring for the very first time!

Glyn Smith, pictured above made sure that all fighters adhered stringently to the BFKKO rules for Kick Jutsu and the WAKO rules for MMA which were as stated already implemented on the day.
A great day was had by all an it was so nice to see so many smiling faces all enjoying what they loved most......martial arts under one of the leading organisations in the country, the BFKKO who are proud to be recognised by WAKO the World Governing Body for Kickboxing.
