Professional MMA Fighter and Multi-time National Kickboxing Champion Brent Hess will be leading the MiKiDo Kickboxing Team from Baileys Crossroads, VA into battle at an international kickboxing tournament on July 20-22. Only this time he will be leading his team as a coach. Brent and his team of 12 (4 Children and 8 Adults) will be traveling to Orlando, FL to compete in the prestigious and highly competitive IKF World Classic 2012. Kickboxers come from all over the world to compete in this 2-day tournament of champions.
This however, isn’t the first rodeo for the MiKiDo Team. Master and Founder of MiKiDo, Mike Hess has coached the MiKiDo competition team since 1982 and has since earned 110 National/International Championship Title Belts over the years in almost every reputable combative organization. He is very well regarded in the martial arts community, in the Northern Virginia community for his many years of service, and has won several awards for being the “Top Amateur Coach” in the nation. It comes with great pride and honor for Master Mike to hand the torch off to his son Brent this year, whom he has previously and currently coaches as a fighter himself.
Brent has been competing all of his life and has pursued a successful career in mixed martial arts fighting now having a record of 3-0, finishing all of his opponents fairly quickly in Rounds 1 or 2. His last KO Victory on Shogun Fights VI will air on Comcast Sports Net (CSN) July 21st at 10:30pm. However, Brent has another side to himself that only people in Northern Virginia get to see, and that’s as a MMA & Fitness facility business owner. Brent opened up MiKiDo Mixed Martial Arts and Fitness Center in early 2009, and has since flourished within the community and continues to improve the lives of those who have had the pleasure to experience MiKiDo.
