Thanks to Kate for helping us out with info for the Kate Allen Awakening Profile.
Kate is an inspirational amateur Muay Thai fighter, and you could say that she was a late bloomer. She began competing at 32, and fights out of Rami Elite in Philadelphia. At the time of writing, her amateur record is 5-3-0, and there are video links to most of these fights on her Awakening profile. In 2012 she became the WKA 122lbs New York Champion!
We asked her how she started in martial arts and she replied…
“I started Muay Thai in 2010 to get into shape & get rid of daily frustrations in regular life. After about a year of training I decided I wanted to get into the ring & compete at least once. I took my 1st fight at 32 years old & I’ve been addicted since.”
A little additional Kate Allen fact is that she works as a dental hygienist.
