IKF WORLD CLASSIC
ANSWERING THE CALL FROM FIGHTERS
IKF World Classic will now offer "FOUR"
different rule styles as well as a Masters Division for ages 35-45.
The Masters Division was added because the State of
Floridanow requires Advanced Medicals for all fighters over 35 now.
fighters can still compete in the NOVICE or OPEN Adult Divisions, this division
has been added for another option.
The 4 Rule styles will now include Above the Waist FULL
This was the very first Kickboxing or Full Contact Karate
style when karate made the move to Full Contact fighting in a Boxing ring. As we
had previously posted there were many great, well known Champions under this
rule style, mainly because this type of fighting was the last style to be
featured on weekly TV. This style requires all kicks to be above the waist
except for what is called "boot to boot sweeps".
It will not matter how many brackets this rule style will
make as long as the brackets made are with 4 or more fighters. If fighters
register into this rule style and not enough fighters register with them they
will be allowed to transfer to International Rules and their seeding will still
go by the "Registration Date".
- Here are the 4 Different Rule Styles for the
2021 IKF World
Classic this coming July 2, 3 & 4th in Orlando, Florida, USA.
- FULL CONTACT: ALL AGES
- INTERNATIONAL: ALL AGES
- MODIFIED MUAY THAI - NO ELBOWS: ALL AGES
- FULL MUAY THAI - WITH ELBOWS: AGES 18+ ONLY.

FIGHTER BRACKET SEEDING
ALL Bracket seeding is done according to the date a fighters
registration is received here at the IKF
Top seeding in an odd number (EX: 3, 5, 7) fighter
bracket could be valuable. It would give the number 1 seeded fighter a first
round bye in a 5-7 fighter bracket which would be the difference of fighting
once on Saturday or twice, or just fighting Sunday in a 3 fighter bracket
instead of both Saturday and Sunday.
So a fighter won't just save money by
registering early, but also, make their path to the title a little easier.
