2020 ARMOR COMBINE #2 is almost here...

The first ever 2020 ARMOR COMBINE brought together martial artists of all levels from beginner to Olympian to compete for title of the world's fastest.

Streaming live in January 2021, 2020 ARMOR COMBINE is coming back with all the things you loved, but with a few level ups you'll appreciate! Here's what we can tell you for now:

- There's going to be bigger prizes.
- The new entry guideline video will be published on this page in December 2020. You can still watch the old ones at the bottom of the page, in case you're running your own mini COMBINE.
- In 2020 ARMOR COMBINE #1, athletes recorded themselves playing Reflex game in Live Mode on the 2020 Armor App using a Back Leg Roundhouse Kick for 1 minute. This time, athletes will be  submitting 3 different kicks, so now would be a good time to grab your own 2020 Armor Vest, if you've been on the fence!

All fighters who enter the combine must record themselves playing Reflex game in "Live Mode" on the 2020 Armor App using a Back Leg Roundhouse Kick for 1 minute. The person who has the best average reaction time will be the winner!

The video on the right goes through the rules ➡️➡️➡️.

Rules for submission

If any of these rules are not followed, your submission will not be considered for the Combine.

  • Record yourself playing the "Reflex" mode on the 2020 Armor App for 1 minute (no longer or shorter times will be accepted). The video that is saved on your camera roll is the video you can submit on the form below

  • Do not edit the video, we must be able to see all the stats in the video submitted, and hear the audio.

  • Do not have any background noise,  talking, or music please. You can (and should!) kiap when kicking, but please keep other noises down.

  • When you are recording, you must be able to see the entire bag, vest and the kicker

  • Kick with only back leg round house kick. You can not punch or kick with the front leg.

  • Kick with the same leg for the entire minute (you can not alternate legs)

  • Have the 2020 Armor vest on a freestanding bag such as a BOB or a wavemaster. Any bags that move (such as a hanging bag, or having a partner hold the vest) will impact the reaction time, and will not be considered for the combine

  • Ensure the height of the 2020 Armor vest on the freestanding bag is at the same height as if you were wearing the vest on yourself.

  • You must do your back leg round house kick from a reasonable distance from the bag and have the kicks executed with full extension. If you are too close, or do not extend your kicks, your entry will not be considered.

  • Any kicks that are thrown before the white lights go off (i.e. a guessed kick) will disqualify the entry

How do we determine who wins?

  • The person with the best average reaction time will be the winner. If there is a tie, the one with the fastest reaction time will be the winner. If there is still a tie, the one who kicked more will be the victor. If there is a tie after the number of kicks, the one that shows more creativity (as decided by the judges) will win.
