Kinsley Allen hanging out with Team All Star national Champion Chelsey Nash. Nash is one if the top women fighters in the world but always has time to talk with Kinsley. One day we expect Kinsley to return the favor when she has the the chance to mentor another girl.
The Number one fighter in the world Mr Raymond Daniels took time to hang out with CAFC tonight. We had the privilege of watching Raymond fight tonight. We look forward to more action tomorrow. We also wish a full recovery to Mr Trevor Nash who sustained a knee injury in the Extreme warrior Challenge tonight.
We will post more updates as the action unfolds tomorrow. CAFC has Hunter Allen, Lucas Allen, Kinsley Allen, Bryant Newsome, and Gregory Rowe fighting.
CAFC has once again surpassed all expectations in competition! Jimmy Sherman hosted the final tournament for the Dixie conference in the National black belt league in Columbia SC. Hunter Allen started the day off with the King of the Ring competition. Hunter fought the number one ranked fighter in the NBL world rankings (Byron Shepard). Hunter fought an amazing fight that consisted of fighting back from a six point deficit. Hunter went on to fight other highly ranked opponents and secure his win in the King of the Ring. This was his first money prize!! Hunter also claimed victory in the 17 and under Black Belt sparring division giving him the Dixie conference championship.
Lucas Allen also had a day to remember! He won the 12-13 Advanced Belt sparring division. Lucas had Four fights against skilled and sometimes much larger opponents. Lucas also fought up in the 12-14 Black Belt sparring. He won three very exciting matches and claimed the Dixie conference tile for CAFC!
Kinsley Allen burst back on the scene with impressive wins in three fights. She won first place in the 8-9 intermediate Girls sparring. We all were impressed with her showing!
Gregory Rowe strapped up for his first NBL tournament! We are so proud of Gregory and his fourth place finish. It takes a lot of confidence to jump into a large tournament and compete as well as he did. We look forward to seeing him grow and climb the ranks with the rest of our competition team! Gregory competed in the five and under sparring for all ranks.
We have The Battle of Atlanta, and Wattfords tournaments in the nest few weeks. We need to continue this motion and take it to the next level. We are poised to dominate the competition if we can keep training and focused!
Chad Allen’s Fight Club once again shows why we are The Fight Club! We had a team of fifteen and all did a great job in point fighting. We also had the most forms competitors we have ever had at a tournament. CAFC expects to win countless State championships this year and Chad Allen is back in competition also. Chad won Black Belt fighting in his first tournament back from injury!
CAFC is currently offering a Summer Special for the Summer of 2014. All new members will receive a free uniform with enrollment. We would like to thank all of our current members that understand that summer is not the time to vacation from training. Summer is our biggest time for competition and Karate does not have a off season! We believe that the break from pressures from school is a great opportunity to focus even more time into training. CAFC has the best Martial Arts practitioners and we are proud of our dedicated members!
