Outline and Format Revealed!
Friday, July 05, 1996
Maki Kimura held a press conference in Tokyo to talk more about OLYMPUS-FS.
Mr. Kimura spent a great deal discussing the rules and outline for the company.
- Fights will be held within the confines of a five rope ring with sides measuring seven meters in length.
- Fights will have a duration of three rounds. The first round will be ten minutes, followed by two five minute rounds.
- Unless otherwise stated below, strikes to a downed opponent is legal.
- Soccer kicks to a downed opponent on his back are legal.
- Soccer kicks to a downed opponent on his stomach are legal.
- Knees to a downed opponent on his back are illegal.
- Knees to a downed opponent on his stomach are legal.
- Stomps to an opponent on his back are legal.
- Stomps to an opponent on his stomach are illegal.
- 'Spiking' an opponent on his head is legal.
- Finally, elbows strikes of any kind are illegal.
The subject of weight classes were also addressed. The idea was originally to abandon weight classes, and contest fights under one openweight division. However, after much consideration, OLYMPUS-FS will feature two weight classes.
- Heavyweight (206lbs - Above)
- Middleweight (205lbs - Below)

I like the set up. The only issue I have is the no elbow strikes-wouldn't this sevearly limit muay tai fighters?
Good job being first!

Yeah, I was going to bring up the elbow thing as well. That's kind of off for a lot of fighting styles.
