Enfusion is a kickboxing promotion and a reality style TV show in which the contestants from different countries compete for cash prizes in the finals. Enfusion is dedicated to enhancing female athletes in the sport of kickboxing, as the coaches are females which will then compete in the finals for cash prizes. Each season is a new competition, with different weight categories and new fighters. Each episode is set up to learn about each fighter, as they undertake small tasks in order to gain an advantage for their fight. At minimum one fighter is eliminated in each episode. As the series draws to an end, the athletes are brought to the final 4 which compete in the final tournament.
