About Karate Combat

Karate Combat was born by two fans with a passion for mixed martial arts and cutting edge technology. Since its launch in 2019, the KC audience has grown significantly, welcoming over four million followers across social media, clocking in over 200 million digital views a month and hundreds of thousands of app downloads. In 2023, the Karate Combat community was able to become a direct part of the action as KC’s athletes compete for glory and honor in the world of karate after the league embraced the latest advancements in internet-native technology. Karate Combat has moved from league governance to become the first real-world striking league to be governed by fans. Let’s make sports history together, download the app.

Why did Karate Combat become a fan-governed striking league?

Karate Combat is the first striking league structured to incorporate input from fans in the league’s processes for making key decisions. This makes the entity more transparent, efficient, and independent compared to traditional organizations.
