What is Kumite 1 League and what are your plans on it?
In today’s turbulent times, the lost young generation is saddled with loneliness, grief and confusion with no clean path or direction. The online revolution has stolen the biggest foundation ‘Sports’ away from the youth.
An integrated sports platform uses this key element of a high intensity MMA sport as a platform in the form of THE KIL LEAGUE to drive across one clear message to the youth. The message of discipline, focus, resilience, patience and willpower the youth can be empowered to face any adversity or obstacle in life. We at Toyam Industries Limited believe that every individual today is a fighter and the fight is not restricted to the ‘Ring’.
“KUMITE” meaning Fight in Japanese. It is the basic philosophy behind the Kumite One Fight League. A full contact high intensity and thrilling sport where the fighters’ skills are tested on key attributes, like, Focus, Speed, Balance and Endurance. An exciting fusion of Martial Arts, Karate, Kung-Fu, Sumo, Sando, Ninji-Tsu, Wrestling, Boxing, Marine Core & Muay Thai. KUMITE allows realistic nail-biting full contact combat under stimulated scenarios, recreated in the form of copyright sets.
We at Toyam Industries Limited are starting from India, will move towards the UAE and eventually will expand our footprint to Europe and the USA.
Which teams will be participating in the tournament?
Currently we have received interests for Indian Team, Arab Team, Russian Team, England Team and American Team.
What are other plans and products in pipeline for Toyam Industries?
Apart from our flagship product, KIL Fight League, TIL is launching a series of ancillary businesses based upon the theme of Sports, Health and Fitness. There are currently many successful leagues running in the country, but there is no league on skilled fighting. K1L is going to raise the bar with its unique concept and help bring substantial revenue to TIL.
We plan to launch a Mobile game every two month with in built purchase features, one PC game, one PlayStation game and one Xbox game.
Toyam Industries is launching K1L merchandise through direct selling in the first and second year operations, and plans to start L&M third year onwards. With a global industry size estimated at $251.7 billion in retail in 2015, licensing is a force to reckon with.
