Thai Kickboxing event 'State of a Warrior' in Tatiara

In association with the World Kickboxing Association, MatchMaker Promotions is again proud to present their Thai Kickboxing event ‘State of a Warrior’ in Bordertown.

The club is keen to make the event a yearly showcase of what is a fast growing and very popular sport in Australia, with the Australian Bob Jones Martial Arts (BJMA) organisation, one of the first to bring Thai boxing to this country in the 1970s and 80s.

Bordertown BJMA Club head and promoter Kyoshi Terry Hutchings said the upcoming event would be the club’s third.

“This is our third year holding this event, following on from two very successful shows in 2016 and 2017,” he said.

“We want to bring it to the Tatiara again and with two Australian titles locked in, we’re on target to have another great competition.”

With a full fight card of Thai kick boxing, the night will be both exciting and entertaining.

Fighters have nominated at this stage from Western Australia, Tasmania, Victoria and South Australia.

Local businesses have jumped in again to give huge support to the event as sponsors.

‘State of a Warrior’ will be held on Saturday October 20, at the Tatiara Civic Centre in Bordertown, with doors opening at 6.30pm.

This year there will also be a pay per view option available online, for those unable to attend.

Food and licensed bar facilities will be available at the venue, strictly no BYO.

Tickets are now available online through Ticketbooth and at both Bordertown and Keith Pharmacies.

Under 18s are welcome, younger children must be supervised and in the company of an adult.
