map. We will be looking for LEADERS in all of these regions.

IKF Headquarters at (916) 663-2467 or by

whatever, feel free to contact us at any of the contacts above.
There is still a lot of work to be done.
Work we DO plan
to do, and do so with the help of many of you who are passionate about the
As for judging decisions from the past, keep in mind that all
IKF sanctioned events in California prior
to the IKF CALIFORNIA
appointment on March 17th, all of the other shows where you see different
sanctioning body TITLES, (IKF, ISKA, USMTA, WBC, WKC, MTG, etc. etc)
were ALL regulated by the California State Athletic commission. All the
Officials on those events were NOT appointed by any of the Sanctioning Bodies.
All these event officials were appointed by the CSAC (California State
As you will read below, we plan to schedule 3 (4) different
Officials Training FORUMS to start things off in finding the best officials we
can for both Muay Thai and Kickboxing.
We will be scheduling these in:
- Northern California, most likely at the IKF
& International Fight Sports Headquarters.
- Central California 1, most likely in the Fresno area.
- Central California 2, most likely in the Bay area.
- Southern California in the Los Angeles area.
We want to see ALL of you as involved as possible and we
NEED individuals who are not afraid to speak their mind.
All of us here at IKF
CALIFORNIA are looking forward to working with
all of you to make our sport BETTER for EVERYONE!
- PROPOSED IKF CALIFORNIA ADVISORY BOARD
As IKF CALIFORNIA
grows, the IKF would like to include
anyone who has the passion and desire to better the fight sports of Muay Thai
and Kickboxing on the IKF
CALIFORNIA Advisory Board. When we first
created this page, we posted a lot of names and photos of people we felt may
want to be a part of improving Muay Thai and Kickboxing in the State of
California. We have not contacted a lot of these individuals because we would
like them to know by seeing their name on the page, that we are inviting them to
be a part of the board. However, if we do not hear from them within time, we
will be removing them one by one. We are also accepting individuals who may not
be on the board yet are very passionate about improving Muay Thai and Kickboxing
in California. If you would like to be a part of improving these sports, e-mail
us with your name and a short bio about yourself, and what role you would like
to play in the IKF CALIFORNIA
regulatory process. email@example.com
Our goal with the
Advisory Board is to UNITE all organizations under the IKF
CALIFORNIA regulatory system. The final
advisory board will not be a collection of "Guys who profess their love
for Mr. Fossum and the IKF!" The
final board will be composed of those having something of quality to offer
Kickboxing & Muay Thai here in California. This is NOT going to be an IKF ONLY Party! You can call it a monopoly (Only
because the IKF is the only appointed sanctioning body) but you all have our
word that we will not take advantage of our appointment as others have.
Great Power Comes Great Responsibility."
- TITLE FIGHTS
Since IKF CALIFORNIA is in
charge of "REGULATING" all Amateur Kickboxing & Muay Thai, it does
not mean good-bye to title fights of other organizations. Like any regulatory
body, promoters can have other sanctioning body titles on their events as long
as they are "LEGIT" Title bouts... In other words, fighters must be
able to PROVE their winning records as promoters will not be allowed to match-up
fighters with losing records or undocumented records for Title Fights. This is
something everyone should agree to as to keep the "Credibility"
in every title bout the PUBLIC is paying money to come see.
ALL title bouts
MUST BE PRE-APPROVED by IKF
- IKF CALIFORNIA
will approve ALL Fighters for ALL title bouts on ALL IKF
CALIFORNIA sanctioned events.
- IKF CALIFORNIA
will allow approved officials confirmed by the Title Sanctioning Body to be
officials of the bout at the promoters additional expense.
IKF CALIFORNIA wants
to be able to provide "The BEST of the BEST" when it comes to
event Officials for all IKF
CALIFORNIA sanctioned events. IKF CALIFORNIA
WELCOMES any and all Officials from any and all sanctioning bodies to work as
Officials. IKF CALIFORNIA
will routinely schedule training seminars for timekeepers, judges, referees,
inspectors, doctors and event representatives once a month if not more often.
These gatherings will also be discussion forums for anyone who is associated in
any way with IKF CALIFORNIA
be they officials, fighters, trainers and even fight fans to voice their ideas
and opinions as to how to improve on the current program.
It is a STRONG
Goal of IKF CALIFORNIA
to have properly educated and trained officials that have "Yearly"
certification courses to attend to continue to be event officials. IKF CALIFORNIA wants
to make sure all officials are FULLY trained and skilled on all aspects of the
rule styles they will be working as an Official. Here is our plan for these
- Nor Cal Region, most likely at the IKF
& International Fight Sports Headquarters.
- Central Region, most likely in the Fresno area.
- Bay Region, most likely in the Bay area.
- So Cal Region in the Los Angeles area.
IKF CALIFORNIA can
assure everyone that this will be no
MONEY MONOPOLY as some have referenced another delegated organization
have done here in California. The IKF
CALIFORNIA fees will be the same fees the IKF has had since 1998. There will of course be some
changes IKF CALIFORNIA
will have. Here is an example of some of the IKF

- Fighter License: $40/Year. (Revised January 2017 & 2018)
