  10. TECHNICAL KNOCKOUT
    A fighter has been stopped from fighting from taking too many blows or maybe knocked down 3 times in one round, but can still stand or is not knocked "OUT". This is a fighter who is obviously hurt and the referee feels he/she cannot continue any longer. Any fighter who loses their bout by TECHNICAL KNOCKOUT will be suspended from Fighting for 45 days.
    • If the TKO (TECHNICAL KNOCKOUT) stop was not due to a headblow the fighter, trainer and or manager may make a request in Writting to the IKF Headquarters for a "Suspension Waiver". Examples of bouts that end with a TKO decision that "Could" be accepted for "Suspension Waiver". are:
      • A stop from an injury, except broken bones. (EX: Pulled muscle, twisted ankle etc.)
      • Stop from a body blow that did not do any internal damage or break any bones.
      • Fighter was simply too tired to continue. To read more detail about the suspension rules and regulations Click HERE.

  11. KNOCKOUT
    A fighter shall be awarded a knockout if he knocks his opponent to the ring floor and the opponent is OUT COLD by the count of 10. In the IKF, a "KNOCKOUT" indicates that a fighter was "OUT COLD" after a strike. Any fighter who loses their bout by KO, or KNOCKOUT will be suspended from Fighting for 45 days. It is the responsibility of the fighter, trainer and manager to respect and abide by this rule for the personal safety of their own fighter.
    • Their are no "Suspension Waivers" allowed for true KNOCKOUT loses. This is for the protection of the fighters. To read more detail about the suspension rules and regulations Click HERE.

  12. DISQUALIFICATION
    Usually the decision after an excessive Foul (or 1 harsh Foul.). The IKF Referee and IKF Ringside Representative shall make such a decision.
    • FOR EXAMPLE: If a fighter is injured from a Foul, and the fight continues, but is later stopped because of additional injury to the fouled area, the score cards will be tallied. If the fighter fouling is ahead on the score cards a TECHNICAL DRAW will be the result of the fight. If the fighter not fouling is ahead, he will be awarded a TW (Technical Win) and the fighter fouling will be awarded a TL (Technical Los) or DISQUALIFICATION.
