Show after show, there are more and more interesting people to meet. The promoter, Dennis Warner, now in his 30th year of presenting these WCK Muay Thai shows in both Los Angeles and San Diego will tell you, he’s had a 30 year love affair with the sport. And year after year, his shows keep getting better and better, more polished with combatants showing amazing heart. He’s of the opinion that if he could get everyone to watch just one show, they too would be hooked for life.

On Saturday, October 23rd, 2021, Mr. Warner’s latest show at the Four Points By Sheraton Hotel, 8110 Aero Drive, San Diego, Ca. features PRO & AMATEUR MUAY THAI WCK Full Rules bouts with the talented fighters coming from near and far.
