Muay Thai Kickboxing

Local Muay Thai kickboxing fighters Kendall Andersland and Paola Ramirez each earned decisive victories at the World Championship Kickboxing Cali 8 at Hollywood Park Casino on May 16.

Ramirez knocked previously undefeated Nicoline Joergensen to the mat with an overhand right in the first round of their bout. Ramirez recorded another knockdown in the second round and earned a 38-36 unanimous decision and was named the International Amateur Muay Thai Federation’s lightweight champion.

Andersland already holds two mixed martial arts championship belts, according to trainer Bryon Schnell, and she added a Muay Thai belt to her collection with a split-decision win over Patrice Kelly on May 16.

Both Andersland and Ramirez are San Clemente natives and train at Progressive Martial Arts.


The Friends of San Clemente will hold its ifth annual benefit golf tournament at the San Clemente Municipal Golf Course on June 26.

The tournament, which raises funds for the foundation’s Fun on the Run program and sports scholarships, will kick off at noon with a shotgun start and 18 holes of golf. A buffet dinner, raffle and awards ceremony will follow.

Last year, $20,000 was raised for the Fun on the Run program and scholarships for local children to attend city recreation classes, according to a press release.

Several San Clemente Sports Hall of Fame inductees are slated to be in attendance at the event.

Cost for individuals is $150 and cost for a foursome is $500.
