The sanction fees are used to further scholarship programs and team activities.  The only way competitors can win these scholarships is by competing at KicKiss SANCTIONED events.  Sanctioned KicKiss events are covered in Kumite Quarterly Magazine The publication features KicKiss athletes, events, and tournaments across the United States.   


How many trophies, medals and plaques can serious competitors win.  Sport karate can be a very time consuming and expensive sport.  Many times athletes spends thousands of dollars and hours competing on a circuit.   Overall, sport karate champions do not receive the proper credit and recognition most conventional athletes do.  KicKiss is dedicated to giving back to the athletes with real incentive based programs. 


The programs reward its athletes with scholarships and national media recognition.  Since the KISS program is based an education theme, members can gain points at seminars and workshops also.
