World Champion Returns for a Boxing Workshop in Fez

Fez is fortunate to host another boxing and kickboxing workshop by former World Champion in both sports, Christophe Tendil

The workshop, to be held at Jardin des Biehn on the 29th and 30th of March, is an extraordinary opportunity. Tendil is a veteran boxer, with nine titles under his belt – three times French kickboxing champion (1992, 1993, 1994), one time European Champion (1995) and World Champion in kickboxing in 1997 and 1998. Later in his career, he moved to mainstream boxing, where he also excelled. Tendil was crowned French champion in 2002; Intercontinental champion in 2004 and 2005 and World Champion in 2007.

“I started boxing 20 years ago,” says Tendil from his home in the south of France. “At that time I absolutely needed to do a sport, as I was taking the wrong turn in life with the wrong crowd. Boxing came by chance, and thanks to this discipline I found a healthy way of life. I fought my first fight a few months after I started, and since then have had a total of 122 fights in a career spanning 17 years.”

The previous boxing workshop was a big hit!

Boxing, Tendil believes, has more uses than simply as a sport. “Many people come to seek a discipline that is not found in any other sports - taking punches requires commitment, because the penalty can be very hard.”

Not surprisingly, Tendil cites the best moment of his career as when he won the boxing title of World Champion in 2007.
