Sensei Jean-Yves Thériault won his first Full Contact Karate competition in 1976 and subsequently became Canadian middleweight kickboxing champion two and a half years later. In 1980 he won the PKA Middleweight World title (Full-contact karate), and held the championship for a record of 15 years. He has also won world titles in both the ISKA and PKC associations.
He was referred to as “The Iceman,” a nickname given to him by Rodney Batiste during his first title defense, due to his intimidating icy stare and cool demeanor in the ring. Sensei Thériault has a number of high-profile victories, including two wins against future four-time K-1 champion Ernesto Hoost and a draw against the legendary Don “The Dragon” Wilson. He has also fought world champions such as Rob Kaman, Tosca Petridis and Rick Roufus.
Sensei Thériault has worked with many groups and charities, such as the Big Brothers, Make a Wish Foundation - Canada, Leucan. He is author of a book on kickboxing techniques and has a series of videos on the science of combat sports. He is the subject of an hour and a half film produced by the National Film Board and was voted Athlete of the Decade by the Sports Writers Association of New Brunswick.
Since his retirement on December 1, 1995, (a third-round knockout of Marcus Reid) Thériault still trains five days a week and teaches classes at Therien Ju-Jitsu & Kickboxing Schools.
Thériault has also become a world-class promoter for the sport of kickboxing. With the aid of his friend Hanshi John Therien, he is giving young fighters an opportunity in the “Iceman Amateur Kickboxing Circuit”.
