WORLD CLASSIC
INFO

CATCHWEIGHTS...
CREATING TRUE TOURNAMENT BRACKET!

Since 2004, the IKF made a pledge to all fighters and trainers to do our best to make sure every division bracket in the IKF Tournament will have a minimum of 4 fighters or be subject to being closed. Closing a Division is NEVER a desired option to us. Mainly since we know how much each and every fighter prepares for the IKF Tournament. With that being said, we "DO" do our best to try and make each and every bracket as challenging as possible. A TRUE "Tournament" bracket is when the Champion and the 2nd place fighter had to fight at least 2 times over the weekend to make it to their Championship bout. Sure, in some cases, this is not possible due to everything from rule style differences, weight and in the Junior Divisions, age adds in another obstacles. Still, we do our best.

Over the years we have been told by most fighters that they "WANT" to make sure they fight at least 2 times in the tournament. In fact we get more complaints from fighters in TWO fighter brackets (because they only get to fight 1 time) than we do with fighters in large brackets.

No fighter want's to travel a great distance, or ANY distance for that matter, for nothing. It was because of the fighters and the trainers why we established this rule years ago. So you can see why we STRONGLY avoid leaving just 2 fighters in a bracket which is why you see several "Catchweights" in the brackets now and possibly even more before this week is done.

CATCHWEIGHTS
Catchweight means the combining of two different weight divisions to create stronger or more competition for the contenders.
When we make a catchweight, we try to create a weight division that BOTH divisions can fit into with little trouble. We add a couple of lbs from the lower weight and drop a couple of lbs from the top weight. This makes the matching of all the fighters as fair as possible. We TRULY believe when we do this that it not only creates a stronger bracket with an opportunity to fight and win in a true "Tournament" system, but it also makes it less possible for a fighter in a 2 or even 3 fighter bracket to arrive at the Tournament, make weight, only to find out they have no opponent...

MATCHMAKING
For This Years IKF World Classic Begins THIS WEEK

This week we will begin posting requests on "MOST" of the fighter brackets of 3 or less fighters. our GOAL as a "TOURNAMENT" is to hope each and every fighter fights AT LEAST TWO TIMES over the weekend. However, sometimes this is not possible due to the number of fighters surrounding the noted divisions. Still, where we see an option to accomplish this, we will post a note below your name, or, have you already moved into a proposed "Catchweight (Combining 2 weightclasses and moving the bottom weight up and the top weight down) in hopes you are in an actual "TOURNAMENT BRACKET".
As we begin matchmaking Please be aware of these important
"IKF TOURNAMENT MATCHMAKING RULES"
If you are wanting to request to move from where you are currently seeded to another bracket or rule style.

  1. If there is NO OTHER FIGHTER in a fighters bracket, he/she can move to a different weightclass or rule style at any time.

  2. If a fighter has at least 1 matched fighter in their registered bracket, they cannot move unless there are 5 or more other contenders in the division they are requesting to move from.
    Since this is a "TOURNAMENT", we try to make it a "LEGIT" TOURNAMENT match up.
    Meaning we try to assure that to become a "TOURNAMENT" Champion, that fighter will fight a minimum of 2 times to win the Title.


  3. If the division has 4 or more other fighters, the requesting fighter may ONLY move to another division if it has;

ONE RULE STYLE
Originally Posted On December 7th, 2013


By Johnny Davis
I thought to take a moment during this rainy and cold day and holiday down-time to post more of my thoughts about our great sport of Kickboxing. Some may have read my thoughts a few days ago on the Glory Page on the importance of supporting groups like Glory and K-1 to assist in their ratings and continued growth. However, I think to add to this, we also need to start thinking about getting most in our sport on board for one rule style.

Let me be clear, this does not mean that sanctioning bodies will not have the options to sanction all types of rules styles. However, from a marketing standpoint...the sooner we get the general public educated on one rule style, the sooner I believe they will come to support our sport through a more simplified understanding of the expected rules in a particular match, and or sport. K-1 and Glory rules are pretty similar as I know them and seems to be accepted by most. I say this because even those who are adamant about Muay Thai and its claim of superiority etc...( not starting anything ) when orgs like Glory and K-1 come a calling with big dollars, marketing etc...no one seems to care about their particular rule style...they just fight! Right?

As we look at the UFC and other MMA orgs... there are some small differences in rules but for the most part, they, kickbox and take it to the ground where most of the rules are pretty general...right?

When most fans go to a MMA match, they pretty much know what to expect. Go to a Kickboxing show and many of them ( mine too ) have two to three rules styles on one event and it's just confusing the heck out of the general fan. I think that its time for the alphabet orgs to get behind this idea and move this forward for the greater good of the sport. I hope too that orgs. like Glory will (as it seems for the most part) be open to working with all orgs regardless of letters and focus on the skills of the fighters.

I noticed that the upcoming WKA Tournament has announced Glory Rules...
Well again, aren't those the same as K-1 rules?

What I'm not suggesting is getting into picking sides with Glory or K-1, although, I know how the game works.
For example, I do IKF Events...others do WAKO events etc.
Its all good and not the point I'm attempting to make. However, I am suggesting that we as a sport, try and get on the same page and give the style of fighting a basic name like the new INTERNATIONAL RULES OR WORLD CLASS RULES and everyone will know that they are the same rules used by the big boys and when the day comes to represent, you, the fighter, will be ready to fight in this class without much alteration to your form.

We know that at least here in America, as my memory serves me, that K-1 developed these type rules...again, at least here in the States as I'm not sure otherwise, and frankly, it was a big hit! I too think they got it right. You see, its simple, Glory will not call its rules K-1 and Vice versa...which is just business and understood... More reason to my point of an international type name. Also, many complain about commissions not understanding the rules for kickboxing...well heck...again, there are so many rules!

This suggestion will simplify rules for commissions to be better educated and therefore do a better job at judging. In Closing and not to be so long winded, from semi contact to full contact bouts, get everyone doing the same thing and in a shorter period of time...millions more will fall in love with our great sport as we move closer to our deserving place in contact sports around the world! What do you think about creating one rule style and what would be your suggestions in making this change for what I believe will ultimately advance everyone's cause?

Thanks in advance for your time.
Perhaps some of the big boys will read this piece and further the movement...I have a good idea of how this could work...but would love to hear your thoughts too. Forward March!
(feel free to repost on your forums as I will more than likely have this piece on the IKF News page as well)

ONE RULE STYLE
Or Just
ANOTHER RULE STYLE?

The IKF has Plans to adapt such a rule style, which has been discussed among the IKF since December of last year. Right now that rule style is named

IKF WORLD CLASS RULES.

However, the bigger question is what to do with the existing Rule styles under the IKF Banner. Although American Style - Above the waist Full Contact Rules may be dieing out here in the USA, it's thriving in Eastern Canada and Europe. International rules seems to be the least desired during the calendar year in regards to Title Fights and rule styles on regularly sanctioned events, but it's now neck and neck as the most popular rule style at the IKF World Classic.

We've all seen the continued growth of Muay Thai from last to first at the World Classic over the years and at events throughout the USA. Muay Thai practitioners of course have the sport of MMA to thank for that. Many stand up kickboxers and Muay Thai Fighters train in Muay Thai to prepare themselves for a career in MMA. A career that has shown to us all that pays more than Kickboxing or Muay Thai Promotions.

So would unifying the styles truly help the sport of Kickboxing/Muay Thai? Or would it be best to continue to offer options to the thousands who still thrive and love the styles of Stand-Up fighting?

Look for Future postings here and on Facebook of the actual format of this Rule style. To address any preconceived notions, the IKF has no desire to do away with "Muay Thai" Rules or above the waste Full Contact Rules. However we are looking into how to revive the International Rules division, which may indeed be the new IKF World Class Rules.

Take In The Moment...

For those who have been around awhile, Lets not forget these famous words our good friend and IKF World Ambassador Brooks Mason wrote several years ago when the IKF World Classic Tournament was just a USA Event. Come Championship Sunday, you may want to read this to yourself to be reminded what it all comes down to...


ANY Given Sunday...

"The saying in football is that on any given Sunday any team can win.
The champions of our sport will have no easy time at the IKF Nationals (Now IKF Worlds) as the best of the best come to meet the challenge. Fighters rise to the task when faced with great talent and our returning champions surely provide that. Don't hand out the belts quite yet as new talent will certainly emerge and increase the field of fighters to watch.
As Jesse Finney puts it "Stay positive".
I am positive there will be great fights for all the belts and we will enjoy the best tournament in America.
Looking forward to seeing all of you.
"
