A Momentous Collaboration

by Karate Combat • 2023. Dec 16

We’re thrilled to announce a momentous collaboration with 9Round Kickboxing Fitness as Karate Combat’s Official Worldwide Fitness Partner. 

9Round is the world’s largest kickboxing fitness franchise, offering incredible 30-minute workouts with fun kickboxing moves incorporated into every session. You can take the moves you see in the Karate Combat pit and start practicing them at your local 9Round studio to train like a fighter and build strength through punching and kicking. This partnership finds its roots in shared values and a mutual passion for martial arts and fitness, making it a seamless fit for our brand.

Shannon “The Cannon” Hudson, 9Round’s fearless founder and CEO, expressed his excitement, stating, "9Round is thrilled to announce its role as Karate Combat’s Official Worldwide Fitness Partner. We find our inspiration in empowering individuals globally through invigorating fitness experiences. This strategic alliance magnifies our testament to fitness and wellbeing, transcending boundaries and crafting a legacy of strength, perseverance, and global unity.”

As a visual testament to this alliance, 9Round’s signature logo has graced the heart of Karate Combat's fighting pit and the glamour of its red-carpet events. We also recently featured The Cannon on the fight card at KC 43, where he took on Chinzo Machida in a thrilling bout that showcased traditional fighting styles from two seasoned champions.  

The upcoming initiatives supported by this partnership are teeming with excitement, as we’ll be co-producing and co-distributing an array of engaging content to satisfy both our Karate Combat fans and #9RoundNation. So, stay tuned on our social media channels to be the first to know about all the exciting things to come!
