The Spirit of a Fighter

Good morning! Let’s kick off the week right and pretend it’s not minus whatever-it-is outside by taking a look at another Kwest fighter profile. Those of you who were at the fights in December are probably wondering what happened to one of our fighters. Sadly, I don’t have any photos of his fight but we [...]

Fight Night, Bangkok Style

Happy Friday, Kwesters! It’s been a week of hard classes and everyone has really stepped up and brought lots of energy to each and every drill Kru Kelly has thrown at you this week…including LOTS of burpees. Great job, everyone, we hope you are planning to round out the week with Fun Friday tonight. Today [...]

A Long Time Coming

Up today is our last round of Rumble photos, featuring Jordan Long. When the night’s scheduled main event got canceled due to medical reasons, Jordan and his opponent got catapulted into the main event slot, and boy did they deliver.

A Whole Lot of Heart

Happy Wednesday, folks! Up today are photos of our third and final exhibition match from December’s fights featuring Joseph Stephenson. If you’re a Kwester, then chances are pretty good that you know Joe. Joe is faithfully at the gym almost every single day, either working or training. Joe does both with a smile, a good [...]

An Original Kwester – Marliese Friesen

Happy New Year! We hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and New Year and are as excited about 2011 as we are. We’re jumping back in the ring around here with some more great shots from our last fight night. Marliese Friesen is one of Kru Kelly’s “oldest” students – she has been training [...]
