NEW YORK, April 9, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Karate Combat announced today the launch of a new professional combat sports league, bringing the martial art of Karate into the future. The fighting is full contact, with rules developed by martial arts experts. Karate Combatviewers can access content through the World's Gateway to Karate, KARATE.com, as well as branded iOS and Android apps.
Karate Combat: Genesis, the company's pre-season event, took place in Budapest in February, and all bouts are now available to view on demand. The first live streaming event, Karate Combat: Inception will be in Miami Beach on April 26, followed by an all USA vs. Iran fight card in May in Dubai and more 2018 events in Athens, Las Vegas, Hong Kong, and Tokyo.
Karate Combat is a modern sports experience, optimized for digital and mobile consumption. The league is the first ever to display biometric, nutrition, training, and DNA-based data in real-time via its custom interactive Heads-Up Display, giving fans unprecedented insight into all fighters' hidden strengths and weaknesses.
"Karate is back! Approximately 50 million Americans have participated in Karate at some point in their lives with an even greater worldwide following, yet no professional league exists," said Michael DePietro, CEO of Karate Combat.
KARATE.COM is the main gateway for distribution through Karate Combat's wholly owned and operated platforms including its mobile apps. Events and content will also be available via multiple digital, TV and OTT outlets around the globe including the global FITE app, YouTube, Twitch, The Fight Network, Facebook, Rumble, Titan Channel, and Dailymotion.
