    Default Is It Illegal to Hold Kick Boxing Matches of My Own with My Friends

    My friends and I would like to have Mixed Martial Arts matches, but people said that's illegal. So we moved to kick boxing matches. Are either illegal? We are minors and we live in Ohio. We were gonna do it at different kinds of places.

    Do you understand the concept of liability?

    Are you going to be fully insured?

    I was asking a question.

    Yup.

    In Ohio, amateur combat sports may only take place under the auspices of a licensed club or gym. That means MMA, kickboxing, boxing, karate, judo, etc. will get you into a pile of trouble if you're beating the hell out of each other in the backyard instead of in a regulated club with proper safety equipment, instruction, and supervision.

    I was asking a question.
    So was she, to determine what your answer would be. Don't be rude to the volunteers, kid.

    I live in Ohio also, and if you are MINORS, and wish to engage in such, you need to do as Missy points out and or consult an Attorney for a synopsis on liability issues and general Licensing.

    Why would you like to arrange such things in the first place? If you want physical training then join a mixed martial art school and practice there.
