A Tragic Loss...
By Matthew Waller

George Allen is a man who has been in the fight scene in Georgia when it all first started, and competed anywhere he could. George's oldest son, Kenny, (Right) who was 18 was shot on December 9th at about 10:30 PM in Atlanta Georgia while inside a gas station. He passed away in route to the hospital. Kenny was always by his side and also trained with George at home and at Eagle Kick Boxing and MMA.

Anyone who ever met Kenny Allen knew how special he was. If I had to use one word to describe him it would be "Beautiful". I have created a paypal account for the Allen Family, so if anyone would like to donate to it, it can be found on the SFO webpage at

Mailing Address for cards is P.O. BOX 1777, Stone Mountain, GA, 30086. Although we compete in the ring we are still one big family outside of it. My heart goes out to George and his Family, I have always looked up to you and please know you are in my thoughts. Matthew Waller

Teen Shot, Killed, 2 Others Wounded
By LATEEF MUNGIN, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

Kenneth Allen's family is at a loss to explain his death. Police are searching for a person who shot and killed one teenager and wounded two other teens who were standing outside a Norcross-area convenience store. The incident occurred outside a store in a Texaco gas station at 6070 South Norcross Tucker Road at 9 p.m. Tuesday, Gwinnett police Cpl. Dan Huggins said.
The shooter walked up to the victims, pointed a pistol and started shooting, Huggins said. Kenneth Allen, 19, was hit in the chest; Joseph Stevens, 17, was hit in the leg; and a 16-year-old was hit in the stomach, Huggins said. Police have not released the name of the 16-year-old because he is a juvenile. Stevens and the 16-year-old were taken to Gwinnett Medical Center, Huggins said. Their wounds were not considered life-threatening.
Allen's father was grief-stricken but stoic. He said the suspect was an acquaintance who recently had hung out with the victims. "I don't know his name, but I've been told that [the suspect] was at a friend's house with my son three days ago," said George Allen. "This is so difficult. We really don't know why this happened."
"He was into martial arts. He loved to cook. I was getting him to enroll at Georgia Perimeter College." Allen said.

Come Up BIG In St. Louis

RESULTS FROM Finney's St. Louis Fights!

IKF/ISCF St. Louis, Missouri, USA: Finney's Championship Kickboxing and Martial Arts has put on another great show to end out the 2003 year. This fight was filled with great fights and plenty of action. In the IKF Kickboxing Main Event Mark Winfield came out wanting to start where he finished in the last fight when he and Dwayne Stanley met.

Stanley had lost some weight and was in better shape, and gave Winfield a great fight in round one.

In round two, Winfield came out and started to get into a groove, landing several great punch combinations, and dropping Stanley. As if the drop wasn't enough, Stanley missed his kicks in the second round and cost him a point.

In round three Winfield came out wanting to end it, landing more kicks and punches until he dropped Stanley again. In the end, there it no surprise that Winfield took this one by unanimous decision.
