Just published on site is our look at the 2012 Olympic Fighting arts which are featured at the current London Olympics.
With daily updates until the end of the Olympics , we will give the results for Judo,Taekwondo,Boxing and Wrestling.With pictures where available.
Mongolia get their first medal in Judo ,with Sanjargal getting the Bronze
Of course at present the page is a work in progress ,but as the days move on more will be added.
It doesn't matter who your cheering for ,whether it be Team GB ,Russia Uzebekistan or any of the other 200 odd countries taking part . For on K.I.T.G. there are no favourites as in the Martial arts and contact sports ,there's not just sportmanship but Respect and Honour.
And in the end it's about taking part and being proud to part of the Martial Family.
Sertes Nake , Wishing everyone the best for the 2012 Olympics.

Been meaning to update here for a while ,but getting features on site seemed more important ,Anyway since the last blog, many new films have been reviewed on site with many more to come, April saw us attending the Terracotta Far East Film Festival in London ,they showcased some 16 films plus a triple bill horror night. We where there for seven screenings over 3 days, to see the lowdown on the show visit the sites dedicated event page on the event. Here.
Now with May upon us we are fast approaching the Birmingham Martial arts show, which last year was a great show offering seminars,live performances and Star interviews and photo's.
This year the show was set to be a lot bigger with the MMA section of the show being in a independent hall,as of Yesterday this part of the event has had to be cancelled due to unforeseen circumstances.
***Please be aware that the Martial Arts Show part of the event is still on,and that the MMA show is being rescheduled for October,please visit the official site whose link is located in the calender section of this site or their face book page.
There's still a lot of stars and top flight performers appearing over the weekend ,so don't let it dampen your mood, Richard Norton and Don the Dragon Wilson had to pull out at the last moment due to work commitments, Hopefully Kwoklyn can rearrange for them in a future show. That still leaves ,Joe Lewis,Bill Wallace,Silvio Simac,Cassonova Wong,Terry O'Niel and many more to fulfill your enjoyment. Hope to see many there.
On another note ,Hyper Japan is set for a second outing this year in November ,being held on the 23rd to the 25th the Christmas Hyper Japan should be a great event for all you Japanese Pop culture fans,plus after this Springs event which showcased some good martial arts as well it should once again fulfill your expectations. But before then we have a few other events to cover .
New update after the Show at the weekend .
