We do a lot of things here at LiverKick.com, we keep up relationships with the big promotions around the world, we speak with fighters on a regular basis and we do our best to keep hardcore fans informed and happy as well as break down the sport for newcomers to make them feel welcome to the world of kickboxing. We understand just coming into the kickboxing world completely dry can be a bit of a stretch for some people; it is an entirely different sport, and while some parts will be familiar, like the basics, a lot of the rules, names, promotions, titles and tournaments can be entirely confusing and turn off people who don't have a wealth of information at their finger tips.
I've been following kickboxing for 15 years or so now and even I get frustrated with there being no central place for information and that promotions, camps and fighters themselves don't keep up to date information. For example, Bas Boon of Golden Glory sent out a press release about the Ultimate Glory show this weekend and it listed Wendy Annonay as one of the fighters on the card when he was not at all on the card.
It is this kind of information that frustrates us here at LiverKick.com and could only turn away the average newcomer in a blink of an eye.
So we've had it. One of the tools that a lot of MMA fans reference as helpful for them learning about fighters and promotions is the Sherdog.com Fight Finder. It is an absolutely incredible tool, only recently rivaled by the Wikipedia community. For kickboxing, there is no resource outside of Wikipedia. Wikipedia does indeed have a lot of valuable information, a lot of that we've been using for ourselves recently to help build up a tool for you; the hardcore fan, the newer fan, the promoter, the professional fighter or simply the historians.
Enter WikiKick. WikiKick is our hat being thrown into the ring, for now we are in the process of building up a database, and there will be some information that is redundant to Wikipedia for the time being, but that is where you come in. Are you a fighter and is your record incorrect or simply not on Wikipedia? We want to hear from you. Are you a promoter and want your card listed somewhere available to those looking for information about events? We want to hear from you. Are you a historian and have all of this valuable information inside of a book? We want to hear from you, scan it, type it, do anything! Are you a fan who just wants there to be a resource like that? Then join us.
Use the contact form at the bottom of LiverKick.com and contact us, or simply go to WikiKick and get started, we left all of the information you'll need to get started using Wiki software, and if you don't feel comfortable, don't worry, just email us and we'll take your information and post it for you.
