I held off from posting about this as I wanted to get a photo with my trainers together as a thank you for getting me to this position. -
Three weeks ago I was honoured with being awarded my 1st Degree Black Belt in Kickboxing under the ISKA by 5th Dan chief examiner Farhad Ali.
This honor was met by a display of skills in traditional full contact Kickboxing, Muay Thai, K-1 & Western style Boxing, which included pad work, defense, counters, fitness, advanced kicks & punches, coaching and instructing others, alongside several rounds of sparring, going right through the grading syllabus from White to Black belt level. -
I’d like to personally thank Slaughterhouse-Mel (Left) Steve Payne (Right) who have belived in me abd been by my side for over 10 years and are still by my side to this day, Mel & Steve have pretty much been the make up of my skills which have lead me to this position where I am now.
This was such an honor to receive and symbolizes the amazing journey I’ve been on so far practicing these styles of Martial Arts over the past 10 years consistently week in week out, enduring hours training spilling sweat, blood & tears in the gym & in the ring.
This journey all started at Fight Ministry Hull (Slaughterhouse) taking a couple of classes a week in the Slaughterhouse Kickboxing sessions then eventually joining the classes in Mick’s Kickboxing too, from those couple of sessions I’m now training in several sessions a week. -
