Just a few months ago Katie Jaworski fought in Combat at the Capitale 23 as the lone fighter from south of the Mason-Dixon Line. She trekked to New York City (NYC) with her entourage of 5 supporters to go toe-to-toe against Jennie Nedell (Team Fusion). While Jaworski lost by decision, she knew she wanted to come back and fight again. On September 16, 2011, Jaworski returned to NYC to see if she can score a victory. This time, she was joined by two other members of the LA Boxing Arlington Fight Team Michael Parker and Jennifer Yang (all trained by Jerome Wilson), as well as 30 supporters from Pittsburgh, DC, and NYC.
Presented by Louis Neglia and Ray Longo, Combat at the Capitale 24 is a kickboxing-only fight night series in NYC sanctioned by the World Kickboxing Association (WKA). The Capitale, formerly the Bowery Savings Bank, is a beautiful event venue nestled at the edge of Chinatown. Its elegant décor with Corinthian columns and marble flooring provided a contrasting backdrop to what was to come that night – a fight card with 21 hard-hitting, fast-moving, Muay Thai and Low-Kick kickboxing fights. [“Low-Kick” or International Kickboxing rules allow punches, kicks above the waist, and kicks to the legs, whereas traditional Full Contact Rules or “American Kickboxing” only allow punches and kicks that are above the waist.]
