    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Getting into Kickboxing tournaments?

    I know there are different organazations like IKA, and AKA, but it all seems very confusing, IKA says i dont have to sign up or anything, but i need to get in contact with a promoter of a event. I was just wondering how i go about getting into a bout and were or what assosiation. Im just very confused of how to get into fighting, mostly prefered Full Contact or Internationanl Rules, id rather not compete in Muay Thai rules but i would. Defenitly wouldnt want to compete under San Shou rules since i dont have enuff experience with throws. thanks

    From what I understand . If you don't know of or know how to contact a promoter ..... you are simply not ready to compete . I would suggest training in a gym that competes . You should then have all the networking and connections you need .

    ....


    but on the less than slight chance you manage to land a fight remember

    I don't mean to sound bitter, cold, or cruel, but I am, so that's how it comes out.

    I hope this doesn't sound as smart assed as I think it might, but...

    If you are being trained in a fashion compatible with a certain hard contact tournament rule set, and your trainers are capable of training fighters for this ruleset, AND they've produced fighters for this ruleset...then you SHOULD be able to go straight to your instructor and say, "Hey, I want to fight. Can you hook me up?"

    If your instructor has no clue where to send you or who to contact...then you might want to reconsider competing...or even joining a different school/gym to prepare for the competition.

    The only reason I ask is that ANY boxing gym, BJJ club, or MT school will make such events plainly advertised and announced regularly. If you're in a school/gym that prepares properly for such fights, then competing in them is usually a matter of simply asking a coach. Hell, most boxing gyms I've been in routinely announce and ask for volunteers at least weekly.

    If you really want to compete, then you are probably better off taking a break from your regular school and joining a boxing gym until your ready for the competition.

    Just a thought.

    http://www.ikfkickboxing.com/Promoters.htm look for a promoter in your area. WKA, ISKA etc. should have similar things on their sites I reckon. It's best if you can have someone knowledgeable to manage you. If you're really interested in kickboxing, I recommend finding a school that has a strong focus on that kind of competition. Doing this **** by yourself kinda sucks.

    I think that it should be wise to train kickboxing, before you go to the kickboxing-match.
