“He who is not courageous enough to take risks will accomplish nothing in life.”
LIVING MY PASSION.
As the nickname suggests, Randy "Boom Boom" Blake is a knockout artist who makes a habit of leaving his opponents on the canvas. The native of Tulsa, Oklahoma, is the reigning, 5-Time ISKA Heavyweight World Champion and is notable for combining speed with power, particularly when it comes to kicking.
Blake took up martial arts following a childhood viewing of the Jean-Claude Van Damme movie "Bloodsport." He says he has seen the movie "probably a thousand times" since he first came across it as a six-year-old boy. Following his first viewing, he took to kicking things around the house, so his parents enrolled him in a karate school.
Blake has never looked back; karate led to kickboxing and a career that has seen him win major world titles and pass through major organizations such as Chuck Norris' World Combat League, K-1, and GLORY.
