A little bit about Kosta:
Kosta Skrapis, aged 21, local to the Wollongong area NSW, has this year been inducted to the International Sports Karate Association, Hall of Fame, recognising Kosta as “Best New Talent”.
Pairing with one of his students, Ozkan Ismail, they have now made quite an impression the video sharing platform ‘Youtube’, through their Martial Arts and Tricking videos.
“Originally we decided to post them up just to showcase our skills and how we went at competitions. We started receiving lots of comments to post more videos up, so we kept doing what we loved.” Kosta explained.
With 6 videos featured on their producers page, ‘OffTap Productions’ the views have begun to sky rocket with recent videos combining to a total over 100,000 views in their first month.
“It is so exciting seeing how far we have come. I love Martial Arts and can’t wait to see where it takes us in the future.” Says Ozkan.
In the first week of Ozkan’s promo teaser release, it recieved 30,000 views alone.
Ozkan has also traveled Australia and taken out numerous State, National and World titles for Extreme Weapons and Extreme Forms.
Recently, both Kosta and Ozkan have been approached by producers to feature in music film clips for both ‘Justice Crew’ and X Factor finalists, ‘Fourtunate’.
“They are able to offer a new level of skill and raise the intensity in the breakdown for our film clip. As soon as we saw the boys online we knew we wanted them to feature in our clip.” Fourtunates PR Manager, Emily Dodd explained.
Kosta is also the Martial Arts school owner of the well-known gym, KMA Wollongong.
