American top team Tracy traveled to Santa Cruz to compete in the IKF PKB Muay Thai event. This show was amazing! It was held in the Santa Cruz Warriors stadium, a NBA D league team.
There were for competition rings at this event which helped to spread out the over 280 fighters who were there from all over California and Nevada.
We had three competitors entered in this event and all showed tremendous skill and heart in their respective competitions.
Mayleen went first and put in a dominating performance for the win. Mixing in beautiful hand combinations followed with kicks from all angles.
Next up was Eric‘s fight. Eric took on a very game opponent but his long knee combinations were too much for the other guy to handle. Another W in the books.
Lastly Carlos stepped into the ring. His flight was a bit of a back-and-forth brawl with his opponent. Each fighter splitting the first two rounds. In the third and final round Carlos landed beautiful balanced Muay Thai while his opponent continued to retreat. For sure we thought we had the W. However, the judges saw it differently and the wind went to his opponent. Oh well, onto the next one!
The next event is October 6 in Madera.
