Aylesbury kickboxer Steven Cook is calling on the Vale’s fight clubs to come together to support his regular shows at the Waterside Theatre.

Storm 4 is taking place on June 8 and Cook, who runs Pegasus Gym in Aylesbury, hopes it will become a permanent fixture meaning clubs no longer have to travel the length and breadth of the country to compete.

“I want to call out to all local clubs asking them to attend the show as Aylesbury finally has a platform where local martial artists can perform locally rather than travelling up and down the country for what is essentially the same thing.

“The show is fully licenced and sanctioned by the International kickboxing federation IKF, all fights are pre matched according to age height weight and experience and we have an ambulance, paramedics and doctors in attendance all day.”

During the Storm shows Cook runs light contact kickboxing and boxing during the day, with weigh-in at 9am and each fight is held in an 18ft boxing ring.

The light is great for novices and children from the age of six up to adults.

Then the evening show is full contact kickboxing, white collar boxing, k1, muay thai and Mixed Martial Arts both amateur and professional.

Cook added: “The evening show is done with all the lights, smoke, walk out music and all the trimmings.

“We were blessed to have the support of the well respected and local cage fighter Neil McLeod and his club McLeod Academy.

“They were the first club to show their support and for that we are very grateful.”

If any club is interested in getting involved with a future Storm event or for more informaiton contact Cook at pegasus_kickboxing@live.co.uk or by telephone on 07966789224.
