Waterford Kickboxing Association was founded 30 years ago by Billy O Sullivan and over the last 30 years it has come a long way in every aspect.

From humble beginnings 30years ago to the 4000sq ft fully equipped Ultimate Gym in Northern Extension Industrial Estate Waterford Kickboxing Association has gone from strength to strength.

Billy must be acknowledged for the lifelong commitment he has given to the sport and also Billy was not only the first to bring kickboxing to Waterford, but as far back as 7 years ago he had fighters competing all over the country in Thai boxing and now has the Deise Thai boxing club in the Ultimate Gym which is affiliated to the WKA.  2 years ago Billy also started an mma club and has a very experienced instructor in Marcin a Brazilian jiu jitsu specialist.

Billy is also a very active promoter and in 2009 held no less than 11 extremely successful shows featuring Kickboxing, Boxing, Thai Boxing and Mma. Last year Billy brought  Thai Boxing legend Master Ronnie Green came to The Ultimate Gym and did a 2 day seminar which was a huge success and we hopefully Ronnie will be back again in 2010.

The Ultimate Gym has now established itself as the ‘ultimate’ martial arts centre in the south east with classes in Kickboxing, Thai Boxing, Mma, Jiu Jitsu, Kung Fu. In addition to the martial arts there are also classes in fitness, weights, self defence and boxing in the Deise Boxing Club.

Over the years The Ultimate Gym has produced 4 Kickboxing World Champions, 6 European Kickboxing Champions and the juniors in the club have won consecutive Irish Light Contact Kickboxing Championships in 2008 and 2009. In 2009 we also had a first for Waterford with Anthony Broxan winning Irish and European Jiu Jitsu Championships.
