katana fighting format
The KATANA Fighting format, is based upon the massive and phenomenally successful "K-1" events, founded and based in Japan, that reached a truly Global audience.
The K-1 format is the World's greatest "style" of Stand-Up fighting. At it's height, K-1 was truly regarded as the pinnacle of ALL Martial sport fighting styles, and it produced some of THE most famous names in World fighting, and some of the greatest and biggest events, which regularly saw audiences of 60,000 - 70,000 in Tokyo, and millions more on T.V. ! And with the famous, legendary K-1 WORLD Grand Prix, the famous 8-man knockout tournament, they staged THE greatest fighting competition on the planet!!
Having gone through tough times in recent years, the K-1 format has gained a massive resurgence, and is being developed by the new and exciting, massive promotion : the GLORY WORLD SERIES. Along with other major, International promotions, e.g. SuperKombat, FightCode, etc, and now Katana Fighting, the K-1 format / style is again growing hugely and set to achieve even greater heights!
The principal objective of K-1 is to win, preferably via knockout, or secondly, by a Judges decision - unanimous or split. Aggression is key, and fighters are encouraged to "go for it"! Fighting is allowed with kicks, punches, and knees, with targets being - the head, midsection, or arms and legs of the opponent. The letter K in "K-1" is designated as a representation of many martial arts - Karate, Kickboxing, Tae Kwon Do, Kung Fu, and many others.
