All Stars couldn’t be more pleased to announce that our very own Junior Muay-Thai sensation Shenelle Dyer has been crowned Junior World Muay thai Champion in the age 9-11 category, (weight 42-45kg) after competing on March 13th in Istanbul Turkey.
Shenelle took on the world’s best and conquered all! Coach Lloyd Heaven had trained Shanelle for the tournament and accompanied her on the trip and was delighted that everyone’s hard work has paid off.
Huge thanks to all our members who contributed to raising the funds for Shanelle to get to Turkey, all of your help was worth it! So thanks for your support…
In fact since returning from Turkey Shanelle has had even more success by winning the junior super league event held by the UKMF. They have 4 events for the year and whoever collects the most points in their category at the end season is selected to fight for the England squad… so keep it up Shanelle!
We are delighted and very proud to announce that All Stars legendary founder, coach and mentor, Mr Akay, will be carrying the Olympic Torch through London in the lead up to the 2012 Olympic games.
Mr Akay has been actively involved in shaping the lives of so many youngsters who have walked through All Stars door over the past 40 years or so and all of his hard work has been recognised by the Olympic committee who have confirmed him as a Torch Bearer on Thursday July 26th 2012.
Mr A has a long standing connection with the Olympics through the sport of boxing. His son Tee Jay, who is sadly no longer with us, boxed the great Evander Holyfield at the 1984 Olympics. Tee Jay then went on to be crowned British Champion and became a major success in boxing under the guidance of Mr A.
