Pair of Stanley Kickboxing athletes win big at the Canada National Championships

For the past thirteen years, Stanley Kickboxing has participated in the Canada National Championships of the World Association of Kickboxing Organizations (WAKO). This year, the team brought five athletes, one senior athlete, and four children.

Under the expert guidance of Coach John Stanley, two combatants emerged as champions in their weight classes at the 2024 event, while two others showcased their skill and earned bronze medals in their divisions. 

Dominic St-Cyr claimed the gold medal in the 47-kilo juvenile division, while Jordon Noesworthy earned the gold medal in the super heavyweight division. In the 32-kilo juvenile division, Jackson Melanson emerged victorious with a bronze medal, whereas Cody Murphy, competing in the 47kg+ division, had a loss to the eventual gold medalist.

With his victory, Noesworthy has etched his name in the history of Stanley Kickboxing, becoming its first athlete to qualify for WAKO’s prestigious Pan Ams.

“I am also the Canadian National Team Coach and will be travelling to Chile with Jordon for the Pan Ams,” Stanley indicated.

Obtaining a silver or gold medal at the Pan Ams, an event that brings together the best kickboxers from the Americas, would not only be a significant achievement for Noesworthy but also qualify him for the WAKO World Games in China, a global platform where he can showcase his skills and represent Stanley Kickboxing on an international level.

The WAKO event takes place at the Niagara Falls Convention Centre in Ontario. It features kickboxing competitions with participants from nine provinces and territories in Canada. The competitions involve three different disciplines: K1, low kick, and kick light. In total, 114 divisions and 72 organizations were represented at the event.
