Im sorry if this thread has been up before, i really looked but i coulsnt find any, so..
My question is how do you get to join K-1? I heard rumors that you can join if you win some big tournament in your MA. Is this the only criteria or is there something else?
There is, to what i can see, no information on this @ K-1 webpage so i thought id ask here.

No, I mean, he was some guy who was a bouncer or something in New Zealand; not really a martial artist. But he got into K1... I don't know him & it was 10 years ago or something, but the story was basically like that.
I don't know how he did it... maybe he knew someone from there, or someone just saw him kicking ass...

Compete in full contact striking competitions. Mingle/meet people. You move from there.
You think Sapp had to fight his way up?! LOL!

Be a 6'8" 400lbs man with great charisma.
Then there will be no 'paying dues' necessary.

Mark Hunt trains Thai Boxing in Austrailia, but he originally came from New Zealand. From the guys I know that fight in K-1, most of them got their ticket in from winning and performing well in lots of fights and others are current or former World Champs in their Weight category. From there K-1 promoters from your area are either approached by your coach or vice versa.
I think that's how most fighters get in, but I guess there are special cases, i.e.: Bob Sapp.
