    Hi guys!! L-ewwel nett prosit lill atleti kollha tal-WUMA talli telghu jikkompetu. Il-fatt li ma qatghux qalbhom mill-barranin ga bizzejjed. Minix se nghid min jien ghax ghandi hbieb minn kull club ta Malta u ma rrid inqanqal ebda xkiel fuq bicca kumment.

    Ejja inkunu onesti, hemm mibeghda kbira Warriors u Ying Yang. Ghaliex? Inqalghat problema bejn Mallia u Daniel. Get over it. Ma nafux inkunu irgiel u ninsew u nipprovaw nahdmu id f id? Jekk le, almenu nirrispettaw lil xulxin b dak li kapaci inwettqu mhux fil kickboxing biss imma kull sport.

    Dan il bniedem Chickens (ghalija bla sens dan il-laqam ghax inhoss li qisu irid jghid xi haga bih), mill kumment tieghu ma maqdarx: saqsa biss avolja kien naqa kumment sarkastiku. Ma nhossx li kien hemm ghalfen din il-furja kollha bit-tghajjir. Hadd ma semma lil Noel u avolja ghandi rispett lejn Julian, inhoss li mhux professjonali li issemmih ghalxejn. Kulhadd ghandu it-tajjeb tieghu imma li tibqghu addejjin gwerra mhux soluzzjoni. Nghidilkom wahda, tahseb li bniedem li ma jafx xinhu jigri se jithajjar jaqbad jitrenja wara li jaqra dawn il-kummenti?

    U jekk xi hadd jaghzel li irridu inkunu kredibbli (li naf li iebsa), ejja inkunu onesti ghax kemm il- world titles ta WKN u dawk tal WUMA ma jfissrux hafna. Mhux ghax nemmen li il-Maltin mhux kapaci imma biex tirbah world title ma tiggilidx glieda wahda biss jew 2 jew minghajr ma jkun hemm qualifying round. L-aqwa championsships fid-dinja tal-kickboxing huma tal-WAKO ghax ikun hemm mid-dinja kollha u ic-champions jintaghzlu b’ sistema ta knockout fights tant li jdumu fuq jumejn jiggieldu u mhux glieda wahda bhal hawn Malta. Ma rrid innehhi xejn mill-mertu tal- kickboxers Maltin li hawn minnhom ghandhom talent kbir imma li issejjah ruhek champion tad-dinja hija naqa bombastika. 2 mill aqwa fighters ta Malta huma Daniel Zahra u Steve Martin. It- tnejn li huma rebhu World Titles. Hawn xi hadd li ghandu l-istonku inizzel li tal-piz taghhom huma l-aqwa fid-dinja.

    F’ isem id-dilettanti kollha ta dan l-isport nobbli, aqtaw il-piki halli dan l-isport imur il-quddiem u kulhadd ikollu biex jiehu pjacir ghax l-ebda club mandu ghalfejn ikabbar rasu: la ta Julian u lanqas ta Noel.

    Fl-ahhar kiteb wiehed bis-sens fejn jidhol dan it-tip ta sports. Ma nistax u nahseb qatt ma ha nkun nista nifhem il maltin. Flok inkunu kburin li malti rebah barrani (irrelevanti min hu jew ta liema klabb) joqghodu jahlu l-energija fuq tajjir u mibgheda!! Mhux ahjar tikkoncentraw aktar fuq lis-sport milli fuq dawn il-hmerijiet, hal li jingiebu aktar unuri lejn pajjizna? (hawn qed nirreferi ghal kull Klabb) ghalinqas nistaw najdu li ghamilna success f ‘dixxiplina madwar id-dinja. Il piki u t-tajjir halluh ghal xi competition (mhux ghax naqbel laqqas) mhux ghal hajja personali ta kul wiehed/a minkhom. Qed tbezzaw hafna nies li jixtiequ jibdew jipprattikaw dan lis-sports. L-unika haga li nista nifhem, li hafna ‘atleti’ ta dan lis-’sports’, dawruh ghal ‘Glied bil Licenzja’.

    Fejn jidhlu federazzjonijiet, bhala l-ghola livell, aktar nemmen li WKN hija l-aqwa kemm ghal r-raguni li ghanda Kickboxing, Thai Boxing, K1, MMA u Boxing. Dawn id-dixxiplini (apparti l-Boxing) narhom jikompetu bl-ebda protezzjoni hlief bl-ingwanti. Qed najd dan ghax hafna drabi segwejt it-transmissjoni fuq Euro Sports kif ukoll fuq Fox Sports. Ovvjament din hija opinjoni tieghi, hemm hafna li jaqblu u hemm ukoll li ma jaqblux. Kullhadd ghandu d-dritt li jesprimi l-opinjoni minghajr ma jwegga l-hadd, wara kollox kif jajd il qawl malti, ‘Ghalhekk il-baqra tinbieh kollha’
