The new year is well underway and after two weeks of classes, hopefully everyone is getting back into the swing of things!
2019 is going to be a huge year for the club, with two major kickboxing events taking place on our doorstep.
On May 5th, The WKC Aberdeen Open returns to the BHGE Arena in Aberdeen. With eight fight zones and 3,000 spectators there’s never been a better time for us to show the world what we are made of. This is one of the biggest stages in the sport and those who want to compete will need ot be focused and determined in their training over the next five months. Some of the best fighters from across the globe are going to be attending and we want to be sharing the podiums with them! We’ve got phenomenal fighters in a number of weight and age categories so we have high hopes for the event.
Alongside the Aberdeen Open we’re extremely excited to be working directly with the WKC on the inaugural WKC Scottish Championships. This is a new event and will take place on August 18th in the brand new Moray Leisure Centre in Elgin. Sensei John has been to the site with the WKC Scotland team and discussed how the event will run – we can’t give too much away at the moment but it’s shaping up to be a superb addition to the Scottish kickboxing calendar and we’re delighted to be so deeply involved.
With these two huge events on the horizon, make sure you take twice as much water and a towel to clss – we’re going to be working hard!
