Kickboxing Push in Illinois

Posted: Updated:

PEORIA – More Kickboxing and Martial Arts competitions could be held in the state under pending legislation.

The Bill sponsors argue current state law puts limits on promoters who want to host events for amateurs.

A spokesman for the State Department of Professional Regulation says they oppose it because it does not address safety of athletes adequately, but the Department is open to alternatives. Supporters of the bill say they will look at a different approach and agree safety should be paramount.
