Context: Just two weeks since it launched, Karate Combat has received worldwide attention, with fighters lining up to apply, rules debated on podcasts and blogs, features in Sports Illustrated, BBC Sportshour, USA Today, Vice, CNN, SB Nation, HK01, Cheddar and Ouest France and social media booming. Chuck Liddell and Bas Rutten were announced as advisors and ambassadors, and Bas’s appearance on the Joe Rogan Experience became one of the most popular MMA show episodes of the series. The new full contact rules will change how the public looks at karate. And the creation of a mainstream pro league, with cinematic production values, will return the martial art to its rightful place as an important global sport. Karate Combat has also entered into a marketing agreement with Cobra Kai, the Karate Kid sequel series on YouTube Red.
Please note: The event is not open to the public and is invitation only.
There is limited room for media at the event.
