IKF EAST COAST KICKBOXING CLASSIC…NOW SET FOR
Oct. 10th and 11th 2014
REGISTRATION NOW OPEN!
IKF East Coast Muay Thai Kickboxing Classic…Now Two Days!
Drops Third Day to assist with travel and cost to
competitors, Friday, Oct. 10th and Saturday, Oct. 11th
AK Promotions President Johnny Davis announced today
that the 2nd annual IKF East Coast Classic scheduled for Oct.
10th, 11th and 12th in Dillon, SC will now only be two days!
Registration day will still be on Friday, Oct. 10th and
Elimination and Championships will be on Sat. Oct. 11th. After careful consideration of all
aspects of the event, Davis noted
“last year we had about 15 fights a day and each day was done like
an individual show with music and fighter walkouts. The fans loved it! However, we finished early each day and
had a lot of down time. This year,
fighters and fans can get back on road the same day or at least early
Sunday morning and with school and job obligations, this can only be a
good thing. It is our mission to give fighters a nice and safe platform
to compete, while giving fight fans a great show, I feel this move will
do both!” Additionally though, if registration goes beyond expectations,
we can always add another Ring to expedite the event.
Looking at the pace of registration, this year will be
similar participation as last year, which will make an exciting event but
can be done in two day as oppose to three days. Fighters will register on Friday
starting at noon and should be prepared to fight their elimination early
on Saturday morning and their championship bout on Saturday afternoon/evening.
Fighting twice on the first day and once or twice in
some cases on the next day is actually the design of these tournaments
but is normally only needed when the brackets have 5 or more people in
them. Of course in large
tournaments like the IKF World Classic etc. as well as professional organizations like Glory
and K1, competitors may fight up to three or more times on one event
which is an awesome task. As always, full safety gear and the upmost care
will be available for fighters including Doctors and ALS Transport unit
etc. However, if a doctor feels
that one is not able to compete in a second bout, the appropriate
decision will be made and injured fighter will pulled from the event.
Additionally, having the elimination and finals on the
same day will also give a full day of travel time on Sunday. It will allow fight fans to know that
they are only giving up one day as oppose to giving up their entire
weekend and not knowing what day their fighter will be up which could
complicate travel plans. Moreover,
dropping the 3rd day of the event will also save some on rooms
nights needed at the hotel, additional food etc. It just seems like a win, win for
Now, dropping the third day will also limit how many
fighters can sign up in a division which will be a maximum of 4! However, we are open to creating a new
division if needed for additional fighters but they will have to register
by this Friday, Sept. 12…but again, that’s only if there are more than 4
people in a division and others sign up for the newly created
division. Otherwise, the extra
fighter will have to move to another available division, be an alternate
for the division in case one of the fighters are injured, fight in the
IKF PKB tournament or refunded if they desire.
be reminded that they can register all the way up to Oct. 6th for the IKF ECC Full Contact Event
(Absolute Final Deadline) but that depends on availability for
divisions and their willingness to pay the late registration fee.
Registration and weigh in will start at 11:AM – (Scales will be available
at 10:AM to test your weight)
Fighters to Dressing Rooms at 8:AM-8:45 AM
Finals starts at- 9:15 AM – Open and Novice Divisions

In the coming years as we continue to grow the
tournament, we look forward to having many more competitors and levels of
competition that those around the globe will want to attend. However in the mean time, we hope that
our decision is helpful to those that plan to attend the tournament this
year. Again, it’s our goal to
provide you with a great event and we will do all we can to make this
