Good fights and a G2 Competition Gold from Team Kixstars who went Dutch!

13 March 2015

With a bigger team than last year, Team Kixstar headed to Eindhoven, Netherlands to compete at the 42nd edition of the Lotto Dutch Open - the only competition in Europe with a G2 ranking.

Yassine Saidoune's Juniors debut and Andrea Pires' first G2 competition with Team Kixstar gave were met with challenging opponents and are both vowing to go back next year stronger, faster and better. Cadets Endris Tafilaku, Ericas Luckauskas, and Jonathan Alpha won their first fights but unluckily missed their chances of a podium finish. Shayanne Sarzosa however, won her fight against the Polish National Team competitor with a score 7-0 - bagging her 2nd G2 Gold Medal and her 3rd medal in 3 months! 

GO KIXSTAR!

International Competitors Team Growing: 4 Kixstar Dragons Selected to Represent England at the Commonwealth Games!

15 November 2014 

Nearly 450 select athletes have competed over two-days at Meadowbank Stadium in Edinburgh on the weekend, which included 4 of our very own Kixstar Dragon players.

Shayanne and Yassine are no strangers to international comeptitions like this but 2 more joined them this time: Endris Tafilaku and Jonathan Alpha were also selected to join the afformentioned two to represent England
at the Commonwealth Championships.

Although missing out on a medal, Jonathan had the whole team at the edge of their seats - narrowly losing at a 'golden point' finish against Australia. Both Endris and Shayanne take home bronze: Endris winning beautifully against his Autralian opponent on the first and unluckily missed out on his second fight while Shayanne faced the current Commonwealth Champion of her category. Cheers for Yassine - easily bringing home gold and crowned Commonwealth Champion.
