About the event

Kyokushin US Association (KUSA) under the direction of Shihan Roman Herman teams up with USKA Fight Sports once again to bring you an unforgettable event!  A unique event, the Iron Man Kyokushin Kumite Challenge is Round Robin style Kyokushin Kumite event with back to back 1 minute matches in both Semi & Full Knockdown divisions with No Head Contact.  


In order to show the full spirit of Karate to the world, we will put together 5-10 fighters per division in a smaller scale version of Mas Oyama's 100 Man Kumite.  1 fighter will go in the center to fight each of the other 5-10 competitors in 1 on 1 back to back 1 minute rounds.  After the fighter has finished his 5-10 rounds, he wil rejoin the other fighters to give the next fighter their turn to be in the center to fight all compeitors in the division in back to back rounds in the same fashion.  This will continue until ALL COMPETITORS have had a turn to be the "Iron Man" in the center.   


While it is Full Contact, we are however trying to make a FRIENDLY ENVIRONMENT, and while we encourage competitors to fight hard and push their opponent, we ask fighters to keep in mind we want fighters to be able to continue fighting even after their turn so that everyone will have a chance to fight everyone without anyone being taken out due to injuries.  Therefore we ask fighters to not intentionally injure or maliciously attack each other.   


This Knockdown Challenge will serve to spread awareness of Kyokushin during a Muay Thai Kickboxing festival hosted by the USKA Fight Sports.   Shihan Roman Herman will issue a trophy for the "Most Spirited Fighter"
