Kickboxing legend passes on to highest league

The West Coast Kickboxing Association and SA kickboxing at large was shocked to learn of the sudden passing of kickboxing coach, promoter and friend Ivan de Vries.

Kickboxing throughout the country acknowledges the vibrancy of the late De Vries, a person who would almost do anything, even break the rules to foster development within kickboxing.

His passing is a huge blow to the kickboxing fraternity.

As owner the Cape Fight League (CFL) and the Saldanha Fight Club, he was re-positioning himself to assist the West Coast Kickboxing Association to further develop the sport of kickboxing.

De Vries will be remembered as one of the primary sponsors who sent some of the West Coast Kickboxers selected for the National Team to participate in the African Kickboxing Championships in Madagascar.

During this championship Lucky Mokate, from the West Coast, became an African Kickboxing Champion.

He was selected by the African Kickboxing Federation to represent Africa in the first World Combat Games.

De Vries’s objective has always been to positively contribute to the development of kickboxing within the West Coast.

We as the kickboxing community want to stand to attention and salute the late De Vries and say farewell, you did well.

– Josh Cloete, SA Kickboxing
