    The Illegal State of Most Combat Sports in New York 


    Let me break this down once again since some people are having a hard time grasping this, whether from disbelief, not reading the law or listening to Jim Genia and me on No Holds Barred, poor reading comprehension, or just pure laziness and ignorance. As of last Thursday, September 1, ALL combat sports in New York, professional or amateur, except pro boxing and MMA which are sanctioned separately, have to be run by a sanctioning body which has been approved by the New York State Athletic Commission. These explicitly include: kickboxing, muay Thai, wrestling/grappling (presumably including all kinds such as jiu-jitsu, catch wrestling, sambo, etc.), judo, tae kwon do, karate, kempo, and amateur MMA. The non-refundable application fee for a sanctioning body of one or more of these is $1,000. Plus, bonds of $10,000 and $20,000 must be secured as well. A long questionnaire must be filled out, plus detailed recordkeeping are also required. Then the NYSAC will decide if they will bother to approve the application or not.

    Without all of this:
    Kickboxing is illegal in New York.
    Muay Thai is illegal in New York.
    Wrestling/grappling (presumably including all kinds such as jiu-jitsu, catch wrestling, sambo, etc.) is illegal in New York.
    Judo is illegal in New York.
    Tae kwon do is illegal in New York.
    Karate is illegal in New York.
    Kempo is illegal in New York.
    Amateur MMA is illegal in New York.

    That application form can be seen here.

    The "regulations implementing and governing combative sports in New York State" can be seen here.

    You can play or download No Holds Barred here and here. If one link does not work, please try another.
