I went to Amsterdam on holiday this yr and went to the Mejiro gym .One of the fighters said he could sort me out with a room .I'm thinking of getting a couple of grand and going for it for a camp also trying to find a job . This guy trained in the mejiro it was quality when Micheal Buffer came on cause I didn't know much about it , buzzing :bbb

    Good shout StillWill. :good

    Those gyms have produced some of the best non Thai Muay Thai fighters ever and in the kickboxing world have trained many of the big K1, It's Showtime & Glory headliners.

    Go, you won't regret it.
     
  6. Love K1, its not going so strong these days though, right?

    Well they just had the HW Grand Prix and the Max final the month before, but yeah it's not what it was. It's had ownership problems, has been though a few hands since it's hey day and is now Greek owned. Lots of new fighters with a mild sprinkling of older vets. Most of the old K1 names that are still fighting have switched to Glory a Swedish & Dutch promotion, the new big boyz in town for any top K1 styled kickboxing action with some of the world's best talent at around 70 kgs.

    I'm no a fan of the HWs, so can't really comment except the biggest signing K1 managed to keep hold of the Golden Boy Badr Hari is now probably getting locked up for a very long time, who knows maybe that aided the collapse of K1 just previous to the new Greek owners buying.

    GLORY is now the premiere k1 rules organization, K-1 is pretty much a relic now
