In a few days, Samurai challengers from the Youmeikai, Ryushikai and Seunkai Dojos will be clashing fists and kicks again during another exciting "Kick Night" at Club Cielo in Naha City.

Following the success of the first event last June, Maki Gym, the only kick boxing gym on the island, will present the second "Kick Night 2: The Samurai Challenge" on Sunday, October 24th.

Three American fighters from Maki kick boxing gym are among the challengers, while the others come from different Karate Dojos, or training gyms.
