|AMATEUR K-1 IN THE CAGE!!
|A CSC DIVISION DEDICATED TO FIGHTER DEVELOPMENT
|After much debate and discussion, it has been decided that a good direction for the Combat Sports Commission to take in its Fighter Development, was to
add its "K-1" or "Kick-Boxing" style of fighting in the Cage. This division will be all AMATEUR, fully regulated and will have an open door for new and
established Fighters to be able to hone their "Stand Up" skills while not having to worry about the fight going to the ground.
The CSC feels that this will be a great opportunity for Fighters to become better in this part of the sport of MMA and hopefully help to advance their wide
range of skills and learning in their careers.
The CSC is NOT using this Division to take over the Kick-boxing World, we'll leave that part to other organizations that handle that, we are only using this
Division as a Fighter Development Division. All Bouts are regulated and have a winner or loser in the Match. The Fighters are responsible to disclose these
bouts in their Fighter Bio as "Fighter Experience" and these bouts will not effect their MMA Record. Promoters will be required to Sanction a minimum number
of AMMA bouts on their card in order to have these types of bouts on their Event.
Also an important part of this Division is that our Officials will grow with the Fighters, this type of experience will help them to learn how to watch Strikes and
Kicks more closely.
|The principal objective of this division is to win either by a knockout or by a split or unanimous decision. Victories are usually achieved by kicks to the legs,
head or midsection or using traditional boxing punches, such as the jabs, hooks or uppercuts.
The classic defensive boxing stance is rather ineffective against leg kicks, and fighters are more or less forced to constantly move and counterattack. The
traditional clinch, often used in boxing, is not allowed, which has led to a very high knockout ratio, since the fighters in other stand-up fighting sports often
use the clinch to gain time to recover if they have been hit. Clinching is also a big part of traditional Thai Boxing and the lack of this is basically the biggest
difference between Thai Boxing and the "Amateur K-1 in the Cage" . If you grab an opponent with the intent of using a knee-technique you have to let go
after one single blow. In Thai Boxing, the fighters often hold on to each other to continuously use their knees and elbows.
Due to the combination of rules and allowed techniques, the common low kick has time and again proven itself to be one of the most efficient techniques in
the "Amateur K-1 in the Cage" fighter's arsenal.
The rules themselves are constantly adapting and changing to create a competition which allows for participants of different styles to fight in a fairer manner,
although these rules accommodate kickboxing rules as the main basis.

required for Amateur Gloves as
