JP ‘Tinkerbell’ Kruger, the boys’ coach, says he is proud of his fighters.

“The future is looking good with these champs coming up,” he says.

The Clash of Tiny Titans is a development tournament hosted for all the junior kickboxing fighters.

A new grappling division was started in this tournament along with kickboxing.

The development tournament is hosted twice a year by Raymond Phillips from XKT for juniors.

“I am so proud of these boys and how far they have come,” says JP.

“It’s a bright future for kickboxing and grappling, especially for these boys and girls.

“They are humble, work very hard and they are catching the game from an early age which will definitely work in their favour.”

He adds that this is all part of their kickboxing, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, mixed martial arts (MMA) and ‘Bullyproof’ system.
