PKA-Kickboxing Black Belt
Ivan Malinka Wins Golden Belt!


PKA Black Belt Ivan Malinka wins the GBMA Full Contact Golden Belt.
Fighting in Widnes, Cheshire in October 2008, Ivan fought Mike Ryan in the 72-74kg weight category. Fighting traditional kickboxing rules, but with low kicks allowed, the fight went the full 3 rounds. After a tremendous fight Ivan won unanimously on points. Ivan trained extremely hard for this fight, losing 13kg to make the weight. Daily running, weight training and skipping; and a strict diet of rice, chicken and poached eggs was his secret for the weight loss. Ivan hopes to fight as many times as he can in 2009, and we look forward to him fighting at the 2009 PKA Nationals.

Scott Adkins Goes Down a Storm!

Awesome! Is the only word to describe the month long tour of Scott Adkins exclusively teaching PKA-Kickboxing students his unique Power Combinations techniques. In an unprecedented move, Scott Adkins agreed to teach his very special and very rewarding power increasing techniques—techniques that just about anyone can apply straight away.

     During the 3 hour seminars, Scott revealed little known body-weight and body-shifting techniques that are responsible for his tremendous power, along with a ton of tips and tricks all the students will remember for a very long time to come.

     We simply can't wait to see if in the future Scott is able to do more seminars for us, but with a busy filming schedule we'll have to wait.

     In the meantime, check out his latest film 'Ninja', due for release in early 2009—it's going to be a corker!

Scott Adkins Power Combinations seminars 2008 with PKA-Kickboxing

-----------------------------------------------------------
 


 


Behind the acrobatics and movie showmanship, lie some very special techniques—moves very few people know about. Just by repositioning your feet, or even just by changing the way you angle your body can literally transform your kicks and punches.

Scott Adkins is going to show you, in detail, how to punch and kick with real power and with ease; yet without you having to have any extraordinary skills or flexibility.Scott Adkins behind the scenes on the set of Ninja

See, Scott Adkins has shot movies with Jackie Chan, Jet Li and Jean Claude Van Damme. He has trained along side the very best professional martial arts stunt guys in the business. And get this—they all hit hard.

In a top martial arts movie, to make things look realistic, often the actors have to make contact—otherwise it just wouldn't look good on film. But, the actors have to do hundreds of takes in a movie; so their technique not only has to look good in front of the camera, BUT deliver consistently—and the only way to do that is to know how to perform techniques efficiently.

Scott Adkins is a master of being able to deliver some of the most powerful techniques in the movies—but know this, those techniques really are powerful. No fake moves, no wires, no CGI; because of knowing how to perform a technique in the most efficient way—makes them deadly fast and powerful.

By adding some of these very simple, efficient techniques to your existing kicks and punches, will leave you literally stunned at how hard you can hit.

Here's what you'll learn on this awesome, 3-hour, action packed seminar:

Part 1 - Power Kicking Secrets

Undisputed 2If you came to Scott Adkins' hugely successful 'Power Kicking Seminars,' again exclusively for PKA students, you'll know just how exciting it was...

If you missed these seminars, then the first part of this course will blow you away.

You'll be going into some of the most sought after training techniques to Scott Adkins' key elements of power kicking:

  • Power kicks come from aligning 3 critical parts of your body. It's a simple concept that will immediately and noticeably make any of your kicks faster, more natural and more powerful.
     
  • One easy motion added to your front kick, will turn it from a weak flick to a real weapon of choice. The front kick can be one of the most powerful kicks in the martial arts—if you know this technique.
     
  • How to finally master the most popular kick in the martial arts—everybody has problems with it—now it's easily fixed.
     
  • How by simply re-positioning your feet makes your kicks faster ... sounds too good to be true, but not when you actually see and feel the difference for yourself.
     
  • By using a curious mental 'trick' just before your start a kick, will make your foot reach the target far quicker than you would have ever believed—again you will see this in practise.
     
  • How to place your head, of all things; for a lot of people bad balance can be overcome by learning where your head should angled during a kick—you'll never be off balance and thus deliver powerful kicks that have always been inside you.

Scott Adkins will show you all of his methods on how to get fast, powerful kicks with minimum effort—once you learn these methods you'll understand the true meaning of power kicks. Next up you'll learn:

Part 2 - Power Punching Secrets

Never taught before, total insider information on how to land punches like artillery shells—we're not kidding. Although Scott Adkins is renowned by martial arts fans as one of the best kickers in the world, behind the scenes actors and stuntmen know he's one of the hardest punchers in the industry...The Medallion

This is no accident. Scott Adkins has trained very hard to learn the simplest, yet most effective methods to punch fast and with such impact that a single punch could end a fight.

You'll discover:

  • Punching power has nothing to do with your arms. Two key areas of your body you have to move in a very specific way if you want to generate maximum force.
     
  • How by placing your legs at the correct distance before you punch, will create a twice fold increase in power.
     
  • The four point checklist of where certain body parts should be for correct protection and delivery of punches.
     
  • How to project your body weight into a punch—it's the key of hard punching. So many people get it wrong ... you'll be shown exactly how to do it.
     
  • Which parts of your knuckles to strike with—each punch has a different area for maximum impact; what you'll learn feels more natural and reduces injury for yourself.
     
  • How to create angles whilst you're punching. Your opponent won't know what hit them; after you've been shown how to remain balanced, and strike outside of a predicable straight line.

After learning these simple concepts of power punching, you'll be moving onto the part of the course that will bring everything together; the ability to put kicks and punches together in a dynamic and powerful way; this is the true hall-mark of a kickboxer ... prepare yourself for:

Part 3 - Power Combinations

Combinations ... this is not what you think. A lot of people think kickboxing combinations are just about randomly sticking punches with kicks. The Scott Adkins approach is different...

The ShepardA power combination has to be a fluid, explosive powerhouse flurry of strikes—which can executed instantaneously, and have a natural feel about them ... that's what you'll be learning.

Footwork is critical; striking distance is critical; choice of combination is critical; you'll be shown it all.

You'll be working your new punching skills on the pads ... then working your new kicking skills on the pads ... then working power combinations on the pads.

Scott Adkins will show you all the tricks, tips and moves to becoming one heck of a formidable fighting force—high punches, low punches; high kicks, low kicks—combination drills to create angles to give you the upper hand in any fighting scenario.

At the end of the seminar you won't believe what you've just been through—and most importantly what you'll have gained in your ability as a martial artist—but don't take our word for it...

Just listen to just what a few PKA-Kickboxing students said about Scott Adkins' last Power Kicking Seminar:
 

If the kicking seminar was that good, imagine how good the Power Combinations seminars are going to be!

Now seriously, don't miss out on this genuinely once in a life time chance to be taught by one of the world's leading martial arts movie stars—and a fully fledged PKA-Kickboxing instructor at that.

PKA-Kickboxing Features in the UK's Biggest Selling Health Magazine
PKA-Kickboxing featured in the September/October 2008 of the UK's biggest selling health publication - 'Healthy' magazine published by Holland & Barrett

The head of PKA-Kickboxing Mr. Haig, was delighted when the country's largest health magazine 'Healthy' asked him to talk about the benefits of PKA-Kickboxing.

     In the September/October 2008 edition, Mr. Haig talks about how sport kickboxing originated in the 1970's with the PKA in California... how it evolved and how now comes in so many different forms.

     He then goes on to talk about the cardiovascular and muscular benefit you get when practising kickboxing movements... and that if you want to start doing PKA-Kickboxing it doesn't matter if you are unfit, as everyone is gradually brought in at their own pace.

     In addition you'll gain large increases in your flexibility, stamina and confidence... plus perhaps one of the biggest benefits of all - the ability to defend yourself in a simple and efficient way using kickboxing techniques.

     The Principal goes on to dismiss the myth that kickboxing is predominantly male based - in PKA-Kickboxing half of all our members are women... which shows our measured and enjoyable approach to teaching kickboxing.

     Healthy magazine is published by, and exclusively available in Holland & Barrett stores throughout the country, priced at only £1.50 - check out the full article at your local store.

'Cirque de Celebrite'

PKA-Kickboxing instructor Stacey Cadman just missed out on winning Cirque de Celebrite 2007, coming runner up to Australian actor Kyal Marsh.  After an exciting finale, Stacey pulled out all the stops to push for the win, but tonight the judges gave the overall prize to Kyal.

In Memory of Lucie Simpson

Lucie Simpson

Lucie Simpson began her training with PKA-Kickboxing in Carlton, Nottingham on the 24th of January 2005. Quickly making her way through the early grades, Lucie soon became one of the most dedicated and hard working students within the club. Lucie also trained at the Gedling class under the clubs original Instructor Danny Ryland and more recently with Instructors James Turner and Melissa Firmstone.

     Lucie made a name for herself at the PKA tournaments picking up a silver medal in the Ladies Sport Kickboxing (High Grade) Category at the PKA-Kickboxing Nationals last year and had a huge amount of support from her fellow PKA students, eventually losing in a very close battle with Bernie Regan from Derby who took the gold.

     Earlier this year Lucie attended the Black Belt 1st dan grading in Birmingham, as expected she passed the grading with flying colours. Within a couple of weeks Lucie was awarded her black belt in front of the class at Carlton, obviously thrilled and proud to wear her PKA-Kickboxing Black Belt. Since then she continued her training with Instructor Melissa Firmstone at the ladies only class in Arnold, Nottingham.

     On Sunday the 6th May we received the terrible news of Lucie's death. She had been involved in an accident on Friday afternoon at her place of work. Lucie died after being kicked by a horse just weeks into her new job at a riding school, she was assisting a vet in delivering a foal. Despite frantic efforts to revive her she never regained consciousness and later died in hospital.

     Lucie was without doubt a prominent member of the Nottingham PKA-Kickboxing classes, a fantastic martial artist and a great fighter, she was liked by all and respected by many, she will be sorely missed by all who knew her.

     All our thoughts go out to her family and friends at this difficult time.

     Lucie Simpson - R.I.P. (5th March 1987 - 4th May 2007)
