More of a personal challenge of can you get through it all, we'll be the first to congratulate the team on finishing the course. Well done. Next year's event looks to be even tougher!

PKA Kickboxing Legend Bill 'Superfoot' Wallace Works his Magic on East Midlands Students


May 10th 2014 saw the legend that is Bill 'Superfoot' Wallace deliver his very special seminar on how to improve your fighting skills and kicks.

Clifton PKA Kickboxing club provided the venue and welcomed Bill who is best known for his kicks which have clocked in at excess of 60mph, hence how he became known as ‘Superfoot’. He retired from competition after his 23rd straight victory as the undefeated Professional Karate Association (PKA) Middleweight Champion in 1980, and currently resides in Florida.

PKA Kickboxing instructors Martin Byrne, Neil Fletcher and Jo and Lee Jones co-organised the seminar, commented: “We were highly honoured to have Bill visit for over two-and-a-half hours and share his vast kickboxing experience with us. “For a man who’s nearly 70 he is an inspiration to young and old students." They also added, “Not only are his skills still exceptional, but his teaching and stories of his film career with the likes of Jackie Chan, Chuck Norris and Benny Urquidez left us all in awe.”

East Midlands PKA Celebrate Success of Interclub Charity Event


East Midlands PKA is celebrating the success of their recent charity kickboxing interclub event held on the 8th of December 2013. The event raised more than £500 for the British Lung Foundation. PKA Kickboxing students from across Nottingham and Derby were all in attendance to do their bit for charity.

The tournament was organised by Nottingham and Derby PKA instructors Jo & Lee Jones, Neil Fletcher and Martin Byrne and was held at the Eastwood Community Sports Centre in Nottingham. Eight clubs took part in the fundraiser with ten pre-matched fights on the bill.

With a mix of adult and junior students taking part, all were keen to help raise money for this worthy cause. For many of those participating it was their first time being in a tournament. The competitors were involved in a mix of light contact and semi contact fights. "Some of the best fights we have seen this year as instructors have been at this event. The level of skill, sportsmanship and dedication to the sport shown by the competitors has been fantastic", said Lee Jones.

As part of the night a raffle was also held. Prizes were donated by local students and businesses. The East Midlands PKA clubs appreciate the effort of everyone who got involved in the tournaments and with the donation of prizes. It all helped to make it a true community event. Thank you to everyone who took part, helped out and those in the audience.

Latest Scott Adkins Movie 'Green Street 3' Released on DVD & Blu-Ray Monday October 21st


PKA-Kickboxing instructor Scott Adkins releases his latest DVD & Blu-Ray movie on Monday 21st October - Green Street 3: Never Back Down.

The third film in the franchise focuses on the violent world of British football hooliganism. 14 years after turning his back on the Green Street Elite and channelling his energies into mixed martial arts, Danny Harvey (Scott Adkins)'s world is shattered when his younger brother Joey (Billy Cook) is killed in what seems to be a pre-planned fight. With no leads to go on, and determined to seek justice, Danny is forced to re-enter the world of organised football hooliganism in order to find out the identity of his brother's killer and mete out revenge in the only way he knows how.

PKA Kickboxing Regional Instructor Dave Gentry Embarks on Double Charity Drive

PKA Kickboxing Regional instructor Dave Gentry is embarking on a double charity drive to stop bullying against people with Autism and to raise funds for Diabetes UK.

In early 2013, Dave Gentry was invited by founder, Kevin Healy, of Autism Campaign.co.uk to join a massively growing list of supporters to raise awareness and try to legally stop bulling against people with Autism.

A whole host of celebrities such as Ricky Gervais, Katie Price are Melanie Sykes are activity supporting the campaign.

Bullying in any form destroys peoples lives, but Kevin Healy through his own bitter personal experience wants to make bulling of people with learning difficulties illegal. Kevin is not just trying to raise awareness, he's trying to change the law. A full article by the Daily Mail newspaper is available here. What can you do to help? See the poster below or visit autism-campaign.co.uk.

If Dave's work with Anti-Bullying Autism Campaign wasn't enough, he is also busy raising money for Diabetes UK as well. Ever the man for a challenge, Dave has entered into the 'Big 4' - four endurance events all for charity. Dave has completed the first event, the London BUPA 10K run in a time of 54mins. The second event is the London 100 mile Bike Ride in August. The third event is the London to Paris Bike Ride in September and the final event is the BUPA Great South Run in October.

To try and raise as much funds as he can for Diabetes UK, Dave is having 'Kickboxing Fancy Dress' week at his London Clubs from the 2nd July to the 8th July. Appearing at the clubs will be the Incredible Hulk, Sponge Bob Square Pants and the Mario Bros. All are invited to enter into the fun of things.

PKA Clifton Students to Climb Kilimanjaro in 2013 for
Poverty Struck Children


PKA Clifton students' Antony Birks and Nicola Callard are poised to climb Africa's highest mountain, Kilimanjaro for the charity group 'HOPE for Children'.

Standing at 19,330 ft tall, Kilimanjaro is Africa's highest peak. Taking around 5 to 6 days climb, the mountain's biggest challenge is altitude sickness. Climbers get headaches, suffer vomiting and struggle with their digestive system - everybody feels something. Antony and Nicola make their ascent in June 2013.

Helping Orphaned, Poor and Exploited children all over the world, the HOPE for Children charity provides practical support, such as education and healthcare to improve children’s quality of life. In one year alone 70,000 children have been helped.

Ant and Nic are trying to raise as much support as possible for the charity by setting themselves a £5500 target. Training at PKA Kickboxing club Clifton, Nottingham they are getting themselves into the best possible physical shape they can for the climb. If you would like to make a donation for as little as you like, please click here to go to Ant and Nic's HOPE charity page. We all wish them the best of luck on their challenge.

Stars in National Film Release


Friday 27th April 2012 sees the national film release of latest Brit comedy horror flick 'Strippers vs. Werewolves' - starring Robert Englund, Steven Berkoff and Martin Kemp.

The film sees werewolf chief Jack Ferris accidentally killed in a strip club, but the girls who work there have until the next full moon before his bloodthirsty wolfpack seek murderous revenge.

PKA Kickboxing instructor Dean Williams plays one of the werewolves called 'Mutt' and performs several stunts in the movie. Dean has had a lot of media coverage for this film and has appeared in various magazines such as Empire, Bizarre and Scream.

From the artwork in the opening titles (played out to Duran Duran's “Hungry Like the Wolf” no less) to the explosive, bloody climax, the film suitably takes its stylistic tone from the pages of comic books and superhero movies.

The film is also released on DVD and Blu-ray on May 7th 2012.

PKA Derby Win 4 Gold's
and 3 Bronzes at European
Kickboxing Championships


PKA Kickboxing fight team Kode Red winning 3 gold's and 4 bronzes at European Kickboxing Championships September 2011 in Italy

September 2011 saw the top PKA Kickboxing fight team 'Kode Red' win an unprecedented 4 gold's and 3 bronzes - the highest ever for Great Britain from a single club -  at the European Kickboxing Championships in Lignano Sabbiadoro, Italy.

Chantelle Reid, aged 13, dominated the older cadets category. Entered in the +65kg sport kickboxing, point fighting and team point fighting she blitzed home to win 3 gold medals and to become the European Cadets Champion. The journey to gold wasn't an easy one though... Chantelle had to beat two of her hardest opponents on the same day in both the sport kickboxing and points fighting—a true champion.

The second gold winner was up and coming fight star Mark Pryor, aged 17. Mark fought in the juniors category (16-18) in the +90kg section in both sport kickboxing and points fighting. Fighting three, two minute rounds with up to 8 fights in the week, he picked up a bronze medal in the point fighting and became the new European Junior Kickboxing Champion—a fantastic performance.

The third medal winner from the team was Shledon Smallman, aged 10. Fighting in the younger cadets category in both sport kickboxing and points fighting, Sheldon brought home a brilliant two bronzes from both categories—an excellent result.

The other members of the team: Jav Gidda (17); Saby Mann (13) and Simi Mann (12) all fought with much improved performances. Saby won 'Fight of the Day' for his first bout—a very tough battle where he had to pull back the score in the very last round to take victory.

The team's coach, PKA Kickboxing instructor Duane Reid, had this to say, "It was amazing. Having the opportunity to be mat-side for the top young martial arts athletes in the country was fantastic. The fighters, coaches, parents and supporters made it one awesome week to remember." On preparing for the tournament Duane added, "The team gave me 150% in every class they attended, training five days a week. Through the summer holidays they all attended optional training, often  training twice a day—all off their own backs. The effort was definitely rewarded! The fact we had 7 European medals come back was the icing, sprinkles and cherry on the cake! All of my fighters did me very proud."

We want to congratulate all the team and Duane for an absolutely brilliant show of skill, ability and determination in becoming the new European Champions and for the glimpse of the adult stars of the future.

Second chance to learn from the legend Bill 'Superfoot' Wallace
Saturday 30th July 2011 Birmingham

 

Bill's back! After just 3 months, Bill 'superfoot' Wallace is back again in the UK to teach his awesome fighting and kicking seminar.

Back in April, Bill treated PKA Kickboxing students to his unique and captivating seminar on real fighting techniques and kicking secrets. Without a shadow of a doubt, Bill is a true living kickboxing legend. Even now in his 60s, he can perform the full splits and deliver lighting fast kicks with total accuracy. When you see him perform it's so easy to see why he was so dominant in full contact kickboxing - with 23 consecutive professional fights and remained undefeated.

With a raft of tips, tricks and advice, Bill really is the real deal. From flexibility, targeting, foot placement, speed work, distancing, power delivery, faking movements, defence and attack - you'll learn things that very few people get to hear. And they're all achievable by anyone.

Learning from Bill Wallace is special. Very few people have his credentials, ability and knowledge.

To get on the seminar which is being held at North Solihull Sport Centre, Chelmsley Wood, Birmingham, B37 5LA starting at 6.30pm, please contact Dean Williams on 07973 947792 - ticket prices: £25 adult, £15 under 12s, £5 spectator. Places are limited. Don't miss this unique opportunity.

Rare Chance to Learn from a Legend
Bill 'Superfoot' Wallace Seminar
Saturday 30th April 2011


 

The PKA are proud to announce a very special kickboxing seminar with martial arts living legend, Bill 'superfoot' Wallace, an American martial artist who was at the beginning of kickboxing with the PKA in 1974 and was PKA middleweight kickboxing champion for over 15 years.

Wallace won 23 consecutive professional fights between 1974-1980 and retired undefeated middleweight PKA champion. His head kicks are legendary with his famous hook kick clocked at over 60mph. He uses his foot as others would use their hands, faking opponents with two or three rapid fake kicks and following with one solid knockout technique.

Bill has acted and has appeared with his good friend Chuck Norris in A Force of One, Kill Point with Cameron Mitchell , Continental Divide and Neighbours with John Belushi, The Protector with Jackie Chan, Los Bravos with Hector Echavarria and A Prayer For the Dying along with Mickey Rourke, as well as numerous other credits. Wallace was a great friend and trainer of Elvis Presley and friend and bodyguard to the late John Belushi.

Wallace is the author of numerous books and DVDs and is able to effectively teach his skills and knowledge to both advanced students and beginners.
 

 

For your chance to meet and train with a true martial arts legend and learn real secrets behind fast kicks, stretching, flexibility, timing, distancing and true fighting skills from a full-contact champion, contact your PKA Kickboxing instructor immediately to buy a ticket priced at only £25.

Places really are limited due to the size of the venue, so please contact your PKA instructor straight away to avoid disappointment.

Leicester PKA Kickboxing Instructor Steve Slater Crowned New British Cruiser Weight Champion


Leicester PKA-Kickboxing instructor Steve Salter winning British Cruiser Weight Kelham Hall Saturday 19th March 2011

PKA Kickboxing instructor Steve Salter has been awarded the British Full Contact Cruiser Weight crown after a fantastic win at Kelham Hall, Newark on Saturday 19th March 2011.

Fighting against Welsh champion Marcus Griffiths for three rounds of cruiser weight (90kg) full contact kickboxing, Salter fought hard against the south-paw. With the pace dictated early by Salter, Griffith fought back but faced a tirade of blows. As the rounds continued the Welshman found Salter's range and varied techniques too much and after a unanimous points decision, Salter was awarded the win and much to the crowds delight. Well done Steve.
