Today's Quote...
“Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence.
Talent will not: nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education alone will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.”

Calvin Coolidge

"IKF EAST COAST CLASSIC
IKF PKB TOURNAMENT

Dillon, South Carolina, USA


Thanks to all the gyms, fighters and fans that came out for the IKF Point Kickboxing Tournament October 11th , 2014 that followed the IKF East Coast Muay Thai Kickboxing Tournament. Although the East Coast Classic was a success, little did most realize how much fun and excitement was still to come in the IKF Point Kickboxing Tournament.

Men and Women fought in Semi Contact action and gave the remaining crowd a real show! The tournament also showed us that there is some real talent out there and we should expect to see some of them in the ring next year…trust this… champions are brewing! Hope to see you in the next one in the area set for December 6th, 2014 back in Dillon, South Carolina.

IKF Website
Is Still Number 1
Around The World

According to techmadeeasy.co.uk, as of January 2014 there were around 861,379,000 registered host name websites in the world. Of the over 861 MILLION sites, we here at the IKF feel it's always important from a marketing standpoint to know where we stand among them in terms of daily traffic. In other words, How many people visit and read the IKF Kickboxing / Muay Thai website per day to read our daily news page, upcoming events, check our rankings, etc. etc.

In a recent pole according to Alexa.com, among Kickboxing and Muay Thai Sanctioning bodies, the IKF is proud to once again be the most visited Sanctioning Body for Kickboxing and Muay Thai.

The pole did not include the false numbers of what some call "Piggyback" (*) sites where the main web domain adds in an additional website address destination prior to it's main domain to make their count not only false, but appear tremendously higher than it actually is. There was only 1 sanctioning body in the pole found to have been doing this and the number given is their actual independent site ranking without it's piggybacks which made their web traffic number appear far greater than they actually are.

Alexa's rankings are like in Golf. The lower the number the MORE traffic the site is getting. The Lower the number indicates closer to the Number 1, Hit/Traffic Web Site in the world. The higher the number, the fewer traffic the site receives.

The interesting thing to note is how much more traffic the IKF site is getting than even the second most visited Kickboxing / Muay Thai website in the rankings which is well over "TWICE" as much. It is also interesting to add that most of these sites combine their Kickboxing, Muay Thai, MMA, semi contact & other martial arts all on their site. These other martial art disciplines sanctioned by us (IFS - International Fight Sports, our parent company) are featured on completely separate sites, ISCFMMA.com is our MMA site and IKFPKB.com is our semi contact site.

Of all those 861 Million websites, below is where the IKF (As well as our ISCF MMA Site) ranks among the other Kickboxing, Muay Thai and MMA websites worldwide. While looking at where various sites rank, keep this in mind. The IKF is of course a sanctioning/regulatory body first. However, we don't stop there for those we represent... Aside from sanctioning, our main goal has ALWAYS been about "EXPOSURE" for Fighters, Trainers, Promoters and Officials who work with us.

With today's web technology we're able to see that not just IKF people visit our website. The IKF (As well as the ISCFMMA Site) is visited by the TOP Promoters, matchakers and news publications worldwide. A LOT of Fighters, Trainers, Promoters and Officials who have been spoken about on the IKF site have gone on to bigger and greater accomplishments simply because others could validate their resume from our site.

So when you win your next Kickboxing or Muay Thai title, (Or MMA) ask yourself that simple question... "How many people will know of my accomplishments?" If it's on the IKF site, it's clear that well over TWICE as many people will see your name and read about what you've accomplished (Win or lose) as any other title you may win... Again, our main focus is to not only regulate the fight sports, but also help make everyone we associate with well known in the fight sport world.

Only 19 Kickboxing & Muay Thai sanctioning bodies had enough web traffic to even tank, so here they are in the world in regards to website traffic.

  1. IKF Kickboxing / Muay Thai: 753,308

  2. WAKO: 1,542,923
