See All Updated Postponement Information as of 3/15/20
The 4th Annual IKF Spring Eastern Muay Thai / Kickboxing Classic is POSTPONED due to the Coronavirus outbreak…But Good News is on the way...
See our podcast at 1:PM ET on Facebook for more information and directions. Show will also be posted on this site.
☹We are sorry to announce that we have to postpone our 4th Annual IKF Spring Eastern Muay Thai / Kickboxing Classic that was to be held in Myrtle Beach, SC next Friday and Saturday ( March 20th and 21st) due to Public Safety concerns in regards to the Coronavirus. We treasure our Fighters, Trainers and Fans and our goal is to keep everyone as safe as possible.
- We are taking the advice of health officials around the world as well as other sports organizations across the country and around the world in order to assist with slowing down the spread of the unknown factors about this Covid 19 Virus …avoiding large gatherings seems to be the best recommendation.
- Furthermore, we have also suspended our remaining IKF PKB Sparring Events across the country for the month of March due to the virus until further notice. We will take a look at April events in the next week or so to evaluate everything at that point.
- Registration Fees and Spectator Tickets – All Registration Fees and Spectator Fees will be honored for the rescheduled event that will happen as soon as we are cleared to do so …and based on what we are seeing in China, where this Virus is believed to have originated, 60 to 90 Days…may be a guess. This estimated period will give everyone time to review, recoup and refresh for another great event! Rest assured…another event is on the way!
- Rollover for Next Tournament – What we would like to ask of the registered fighters and Trainers is that you remain in the tournament and hold your spot in order to make it easier to restart the tournament once the coast is clear. Essentially, we plan to start right where we were stopped and have an outstanding event for everyone!
- Claim Forms / Refunds– For those that chose to exit the tournament and would like to be refunded, we are asking you to fill out the claim form on the site so that we can evaluate to best course to accompany those requests. After collecting and reviewing forms, we can better understand if need to start the process over and, or start where we left off…which is our hope. Click Here – Call for more information (843)773-1005
- Trainers- We are asking that the trainers contact us for their teams and any issues etc… as oppose to every team member contacting us. This will help us streamline our call volume and expedite the process. Thanks in advance.
- Crown Reef Hotel Reservations– They will do the right thing for you! Moreover, we are working with all of our vendors and they are committed to working with everyone in the best possible manner. The Crown Reef has informed us that they will assist all guests as needed with credits and, or refunds if needed. Thanks for contacting them the week of 3/16 to 3/20 as they are now inundated due to this fallout with our and other organizations.
We appreciate everyone’s support of the tournament n the past and in the future, our sport and the IKF and AK Promotions! Forward March!
Thanks in advance for your support!
