Head Kick Legend and You; Call for Writers

Headkick-xl_mediumIf you've read Head Kick Legend, you know what kind of coverage we like to offer. If not, Head Kick Legend is a combat sports blog that likes to take a unique perspective on the fight game. We originally started Head Kick Legend to fill in what we saw as a rather massive gap in coverage of kickboxing on the English-speaking side of the internet. This means K-1, It's Showtime!!, Krush and many other shows across the world. On top of that, our work started to bleed over into Japanese MMA, another topic that gets glazed over so easily in English-speaking communities, especially since the fall of PRIDE.

That doesn't mean we have any sort of strict format, so to speak. The primary focus will always be on kickboxing, but we love all MMA as well and when time permits will cover UFC, Strikeforce and everything else under the sun. 

So this is where you come in. Maybe you've already written about fighting for other sites and that fell through, maybe you just have strong opinions and you like to share them through taking part in an online community, or maybe you have these opinions and you just keep them to yourself. Regardless, that means you have the desire and you already follow combat sports close enough, so why not start writing?

We are looking for writers who have a passion for fighting as well as a working knowledge and ability to think critically, expressing your informed opinions. So here is the deal; you sign up for Head Kick Legend (if you haven't already, and why wouldn't you?), then start expressing yourself in FanPosts. Remember that this is blogging and posting news, so attribute sources, provide links and quotes where needed and you don't have to write 2,000 words. Usually keeping a post within a few informative paragraphs says a lot more than writing three pages of verbose prose. Make sure to email me ( that you are posting FanShots so that I can review and frontpage them. After a few trial posts, we'll discuss the details of becoming a full poster.

So what exactly is HKL looking for?


  • Breaking and current US MMA news (UFC, Strikeforce, etc.)
  • Breaking and current Japanese MMA news (DREAM, SRC, etc.)
  • Breaking and current kickboxing news (K-1, KRUSH, It's Showtime, etc.)
  • Editorial pieces (sparingly -- make it good)


We look forward to seeing what you bring to the table
