“What a night. What can I say? Badr Hari is an animal. I was just too banged up to keep going. To my loving wife Silvia, my now-two little girls; you keep me strong.
“To my friends who have always been there for me, thank-you as you are all awesome. To my students at IMC Prospect: train hard and always do your best. Last, but not least, my fans; from the Kyokushin and Kempo karate people and the BJJ, MMA, Boxing And kickboxing fans who follow me and even the ones who do not or cannot, thank-you from the bottom of my heart.

“You are all part of who I am.”

Post-fight dedication from Peter Graham, taken from facebook, 30/05/14

Congratulations on being signed to Bellator. What were the circumstances under which they contacted you?

Bellator has a whole bunch of managers and companies that supply pro combat athletes. They were looking to improve their heavyweight roster, and my name came up. They knew me; they had heard about my 8-fight winning streak. Actually, to date, I am on a 12-fight win streak altogether, which includes 11 wins by KO; that’s boxing, kickboxing and MMA.

So what is in store for these two – when are they gonna fight a name and step up???”

“Both boys are 95+ range, I think Jarrod does mod. Muay Thai, K1 and/or KB, while Andre Meunier does KB I think.
Andre is 8 F 6W-0d-2l  I THINK- east coast & A1 heavyweight champ
Jarrod is 5 fights 4w-1d-0l , Victorian champ”

Rolling Thunder: Peter Graham

Posted in Journalism, Kickboxing with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 14, 2010 by Jarrod Boyle

This is the 11th hour knockout from when Peter Graham fought Badr Hari at the K1 WGP in New Zealand, 2006. I had originally provided a link to the entire fight, but the file has since expired, or disappeared, or whatever. Regardless, I was sitting ringside for this – one of the best fights I have ever seen.

“Each of us has his cowardice. Each of us is afraid to lose, afraid to die. But hanging back is the way to remain a coward for life. The Way to find courage is to seek it on the field of conflict.”
~Mas Oyama~

Peter Graham was big as a teenager, but not the biggest. He was also tall, but not the tallest. In fact, other than some experience playing Rugby League as a kid growing up on the North Shore of Sydney, he’d done very little in the way of athletics by the age of eighteen. There was no history of outstanding sporting performance to let anyone, much less the young Peter Graham, know exactly what was in store when he finally walked into the Kyokushin Karate dojo near his home.      Continue reading

Three Levels of the Front Kick

Posted in Journalism, Kickboxing with tags , , , , , , , , on September 11, 2010 by Jarrod Boyle

International Kickboxer Magazine, Vol.17, No.2

The front kick, or push kick is a unique weapon in the skilful kickboxer’s arsenal. It has a smaller contact area than the round kick, which allows as much of the shin as you decide to use. With a push kick, the sole of the foot, its most pronounced areas being the heel and the ball, will focus most or all of the impact. Continue reading
