Stand Up Stand Out

In 2017, RMKB set out WITH the idea of raising money for local charities. This was a great year for us as we rolled out our first Stand Up - Stand Out event for charity. We offered a FREE 8 week training programme aimed at toward complete beginners to takie them from zero to hero in the space of 2 months!

RMKB invented the 'Stand Up - Stand Out' event which invites anyone who is a complete beginner and over the age of 18 to enroll and train and take the opportunity to compete in a boxing ring at the end of that 8 week period against a suitable match (weight, age, height and ability).

This has been beneficial in many ways. We raise awareness and funds for charity as well as improving the lifestyles and general health of anyone who gets involved in martial arts. Each and every one of the novice competitor’s loved the 8 week journey and the entire experience of competing in a full size boxing ring in front of a live audience with friends and family. Not only did they learn to kickbox, they saw results in other areas too, with weight loss, dietary changes, socialising & making new friends, and finding a new passion in kickboxing! 

To date, we have carried out 11 events in total. This has seen 122 competitors taking part and the results have been remarkable. This has seen a cumulative weight loss of all competitors totalling 60 stone!
