I have just added a video of Dan Edwards fight against Phil Burke to my website

Dan is one of our new up and coming Champions who looks set to become very famous within the Muay Thai comunity.

You can watch the video of Dan Edwards, K-Star V Phill Burke by clicking the link.

This fight was at the leeds town hall earlier in the year.

Dan has a couple of tough fights lined up. First he is fighting Charlie Gallespie from Team Tieu in London this Sunday.

He is then fighting John-Paul Donoghue from Semtex at the Tower Ballroom in Birmingham on Sunday 24th february. This is going to be a very tough fight for Dan, But I am sure that he will train very hard for it. More details about that show can be found on our Next event page.

Current K-Star Muay Thai Fighters

I(Steve Logan) have been trying to keep my own personal blog upto date. One of the things that I am trying to do is keep everyoe informed about the new up and coming fighters at K-Star.

K-Star has constantly produced great students, I always say that the best way to judge how good an instructor is, is to look at his students. Many of my older students like Damien Trainor, dave and carl Copestake, Issy Duru, Henry Cleminson, Kaish Banger, Yogendra Parekh, Richard Hart, Pete Adams, Muri Balagon, Steve Rathbone, Nathan bendon, Gav the man, Jason Richards, etc are very well known and I think that they sometimes undermine how good the new genneration of fighters are.

So I have created a section on my own website called Current K-Star fighters. So if you are interested in finding out about Muay Thai fighters in Birmingham, check out the page.

A Busy Time for K-Star fighters!

Posted by kstarthaiboxing on September 7, 2011 at 9:00 PM Comments comments (0)

Its a very busy few months for the fighters at my K-Star Thai Boxing academy in Birmingham.

This Sunday (11th Sept) Carl Copestake fights for the ISKA Commonwealth Title in Glasgow against unbeaten local fighter Jordan Calder. (Also Dan Edwards is fighting at Lumpini Stadium in Thailand)

On Sat 17th Sept its the turn of our MMA fighters when the UK MMA Leauge takes place at our Perry Barr gym, fighters from around the country will be competing.

Then we have our own show at the excellent Tower Ballroom in Birmingham on Saturday 24th Sept. During the day Pete Spensley is holding his excellent Celtic Challenge, so K-Star have 6 or 7 Junior fighters competing during the day and 8 fighters on the evening show! A very busy day!

On 9th Oct Pete Rai fights in a 4 man tournament in Telford.

On 22nd Oct Brad Coley fights for a Junior English title in Rochdale, On the same show we also have Ravi Rawji fighting Thai and Adam Knight having his first semi Pro MMA fight.

5th November, Carl Copestake is back in Glasgow, fighting in an 8 man tournament with £3000 prize money. A tough night ahead for him.

26th November sees us back at the Tower for another great show.

Then in December Damien Trainor flys out to Thailand where he is hoping to fight on the Kings birthday show.

I am sure that a few other events will come along to keep us even more busy.

This has been another really successful year for K-Star, this November/December is the 10th aniversary of our City centre academy.

2 New Champions at K-Star

Posted by kstarthaiboxing on August 28, 2011 at 4:30 AM Comments comments (0)


K-Star's Carl Copestake and Adrian Maguire both won their respective weight categories at the Ringmasters Tournament in Kent. This is one of the most prestigious tournaments in the country and attracts the best fighters from around the country.

Carl Copestake had 3 fights in the day to win the final against Luke Ried from Warriors gym in Kent. This is another title for Carl who already holds 2 british titles!

Adrian has been unlucky lately and has had 3 opponents pull out against him recently, so entered the tournament to be sure of getting a fight, but it happened again! 4 fighters pulled out on the day! So Adrian was straight into the final against the very strong Affan Khan from the Minatours gym in North London. This was a very exciting fight with both fighters show boating. Adrian was very excited to win as this was his first title.

Four other fighters from K-Star (Pete Rai, James Dore, Tops and Nathan Epps) also fought and all got to the semi Finals.

K-Star owner Steve Logan Said 'I was very pleased with all the lads, they did great, they had some tough fights and the only losses we had were in the semi finals, it was a great experience, we will definitely be entering next year.

Both Champions have a few fights lined up over the next few months. Carl fights in Glasgow on 11th Sept when he takes on the very talented Jordan Calder. This will be a tough challenge for Carl as Jordan is a strong up and coming fighter, tipped for the top.

Carl then returns to Glasgow on 5th November, this time in an 8 man tournament, this will be tough as the winner gets £3,000 !!

Adrian fights in front of his home crowd at the Tower Ballroom in Birmingham on Sat 24th Sept against Allie McConie from Shinkick gym. Adrian has a lot to prove in this fight as he has lost to 2 other fighters from Shinkick in the past, so he wants a win this time!

Then on 15th Oct Adrian fights Andy Hughes from Spartan in Rochdale. Andy is heavier than Adrian, so this fight will be at 57kg, so another tough fight for Adrian.

To finish off the Year Adrian is back at the Tower on 26th Nov against Jason Mummery, from Mungkorn Dam in Kent. This a rematch, Adrian won the first fight via a second round stoppage with a body kick, so Adrian is hoping for a repeat this time too!!

Posted by kstarthaiboxing on August 3, 2011 at 4:25 PM Comments comments (2)

Congratulations to K-Star fighter Mark Timms from K-Star City, who won the

poll to see which K-Star fighter our members thought was in the most

exciting fight at the last Tower ballroom show.

Mark's fight (which was only his third!) was voted the most exciting fight

featuring a K-Star Fighter, so well done.

In second place was 15 yr. old Dillon Elsmore and James Dore who was having

his first fight came in third, so the new guys are making a big impression!

Mark will be fighting on the next show at the Tower on Sat 24th Sept. Mark

is also on our CIT (Certified Instructor Training) programme, so you may

also see him helping out on the classes. Muay Thai Birmingham
