The Karate International Council of Kickboxing (KICK) was a sanctioning body that regulates kickboxing matches. It is considered among the more prestigious organizations that sanction professional kickboxing.[1]

KICK was organized in 1982 by Frank Babcock, Fred Wren, Larry Caster, Bob Wall and Roy Kurban, with martial arts icon Chuck Norris serving as a goodwill ambassador. It grew into one of the largest kickboxing organizations of the 1980s.[2]
