This year is the 1st annual Amateur Sanda Championships being held at Olympia. Sanda (散打) also known as Sanshou (散手), is a full-contact fighting sport developed from Chinese martial arts. The rules for punches, kicks, knees, and elbows are identical to Muay Thai rules. In addition to these techniques, competitors can also score points using throws and sweeps. Spectators will enjoy watching this fast-paced, high-energy event as competitors test their reflexes — throw after throw, kick-catch after kick-catch. See if you have what it takes to combat challengers from around the country!
