"IKF Ireland Senior Novice Full Contact National Championships"
WHEN: Sunday, November 30th, 2014
WHO: Mr. Pete Foley
WHERE: Black Dragon Gym, Tuam Road, Galway, Ireland
WHAT: IKF Ireland Senior Novice Full Contact National Championships
IKF Event Representative: Nicola Collins
IKF Referees: Billy O Sullivan/Craig Sutton
IKF Judges: Tony O Donnell/Craig Sutton/Billy O Sullivan/Vinny O Brien
IKF Timekeeper: Clodagh Foley
Ambulance Service: Order Of Malta

This was strictly for fighters with no more than 3 fight experience in any fight style and everything went smoothly throughout the day.
The competition was open to all clubs/associations etc throughout Ireland.
Registration opened at 9am and closed at 11.30am - the medicals were from 10am and the tournament started around 12 .15pm and was all wrapped up by 4.15pm..
With the recent success of the IKF Ireland Junior National Championships it was time to concentrate on the Seniors.
The IKF brought in a National Championships for novice adults last year (2013) to give them a chance to compete among their peers without the danger of giving away too much experience. The whole idea was to give Novice fighters with no more than THREE fight experience in any Full Contact Fight Code/Rule Style (eg: one kickboxing, one K-1, one MMA or two boxing and one thai boxing etc) a chance at a NOVICE National Title and we relied solely on the honesty & integrity of the coachs to supply us with the correct information.
The plan was to have the fighters fight off in a tournament style format to an eventual winner and gain some valuable experience along the way. Last years competition was a huge success and it was every bit as good this year. It was open to ALL fighters regardless of their Organization or Affiliation and we would like to sincerely thank all the fighters, coachs, clubs etc for supporting the championships.
Huge thanks also to all the set up crew, registration staff, officials, door staff, glove runners, corner staff and to anybody who helped in any way, shape or form to make the day a great success.

What an event on Saturday night in the Menlo Park Hotel. Galway!!!
Every fight was quality, the title fights were off the chart - Boxing, Kickboxing, K-1 at the highest level, top class overseas fighters from France & the UK that were an absolute pleasure to deal with, the same to be said for all the fighters & coachs that travelled from all over Ireland, fantastic and extremely vocal fight fans, full to the neck house, fantastic music & sound system by Galways main man big Pa Murphy, top class refereeing and judging by our completely NEUTRAL Officials who also came from all over Ireland, everything was on cue, fight card went exactly to plan, free finger food handed out to the spectators midway through the show, fantastic teamwork from all our dedicated set up crew, door staff and corner staff, Interviews & podcasts by Galway Bay FM including professional commentary from John Mulligan and Clodagh Foley, top team of medics courtesy of the Order Of Malta that looked after all the fighters so well headed up by the fight doctor, Dr Maura Grummell, fighters were escorted to the ring by Sword Security who did a great job on crowd control, some class Technichal fights and fantastic knockouts & stoppages, new champions crowned, some tears & emotions, but most of all - Kickboxing in Galway is in an extremely healthy state and with fight nights like these, it really can't fail.
Pete Foley introduced the sport of Kickboxing to Galway in 1996 and since then the sport has gone through the roof - he has seen some amazing talent pass through the doors of Black Dragon over the last two decades and like a smooth as silk assembly line, the club just keeps churning them out.
Ten years old Josh Mc Hugh opened the show and was amazing winning all three rounds.
Jamie O Sullivan and Thomas Scarry, both clubmates, had a cracker of a White Collar Boxing match with Jamie getting the win.
Thirteen year old Wesley Ward won by KO in round two over Wexfords Brandon Maltby in what will surely be one of the KO's of the year.
Sarah Worsfold from the UK defeated Regina Fanning in an eliminator fight.
Gerry King stole the show with another crazy entrance and went on to get the win.
17 year old Saoirse Joyce from Knocknacarra destroyed her opponent Aisling Frayne from Wexford who was 10 years her senior, stopping her hard in the second round - Saoirse will fly to Italy in October with IKF team Ireland to fight in the Unified World Championships - the largest ever Martial Arts Games on the planet.
Leona Trautt made her boxing debut against a boxer from Cavin Boxing club and won a unanimous verdict.
Adam Keane from Tuam & Johnny Mc Donagh from Wexford had an absolute war with Johnny getting the nod and with it a shot at the Irish title.
Cian Mc Cormac from Kinvara (Sponsored by Joe Mc Cormack Electrical) won the Junior Irish K-1 Lightweight title by stoppage with KNEE strikes in the fourth round.
James Kelly from Athenry (sponsored by Western Beverages) & Catherine Cullinan from Claregalway (sponsored by Ballybrit Exhaust & Tyres and Core Fitness in Claregalway Hotel) were unlucky but put in fine performances that went to the wire.
Charlie Ward (Sponsored by Headmasters Barbers) does what Charlie does best - win fights in style and retained his IKF 5 Nations Crown by defeating teak tough two weight British Champion Gareth Evans from Romford by unanimous decision.
Paul Huish (sponsored by City & County Bouncy Castles) put the icing on the cake by winning the IKF K-1 Rules European Super Lightweight Title in a class main event against World class French fighter Jonathan Maine.
