As you all know, Joseph became an Amateur World Kickboxing Champion last July. This past fall, I started training Joseph in boxing, as it is his goal to participate in the 2020 Olympic Games. He has worked very hard, and was selected for Team BC in February. He has just completed a boxing camp in Salmon Arm, where he was chosen to compete at Nationals in Edmonton next week. We anticipate great things at Nationals for Joseph and hope he will win the Gold medal for his division. Congratulations Joseph!
In the last two weeks, one of our very own students Joseph Piccolo won his first World Championship Title In Orlando Florida. He is now a IKF Novice Men’s Super Middle Weight World Championship at the early age of 17. For his first fight he fought 22 year old Anthony Castillo out of Miami Florida. He won in the beginning of the second round by TKO. His second opponent never showed up. His third and final opponent was 34 year old Tyrone Hemingway from Chicago Illinois. This was a very tough fight for Joseph, his opponent was much larger than him but Joseph fought hard and managed to get two knockdowns in the second round and won the third round by TKO. Joseph is now training towards his new goal of making Team Canada boxing by February 2018.
