A group of concerned citizens is attempting to get a ban on K-1 fighting in Las Vegas (K-1 is an array of martial art combat disciplines including Karate, Kickboxing, Tae Kwon Do and Kung Fu) The concerned group states the sport is past extremely violent. This week’s Reader Poll asks . . . Would you attend a K-1 event and do you think this sport should be banned?  Why or Why Not?
Reader Poll Replies:

I like the sport and even though it is violent, so are a lot of other sports.  Carl T

*  Count me in, the more violent the better.  I may be a female, but seeing strong men beat each other is a real sport.  Debbie Forster

*  Tell them to go hug a baby harp seal.  Don Bartley

*   No I would not attend one of these events. I am far from being a prude about such things and enjoy a good boxing match, however, these matches go beyond acceptable levels of contact. I do not enjoy watching 2 people literally trying to beat each other to death while an audience screams for more blood. Ban these events? That in its' self would be a mistake because then they would be held illegally and secretively with no rules or regulations regulating the sport to keep it semi-humane.  Kathleen French

* I do not appreciate any one beating another one for the sake of money, or pleasing the crowd.  Allen Doxtator

Yes I would attend. If people are willing to get in a ring and beat each other I think it should be completely legal. For those who want it banned, they should be banned from the area. First off, Las Vegas is the adult playground. If adults want to enjoy this type of entertainment, so be it. I would watch. I think it would be great fun. My wife on the other hand, would most likely choose not to watch, but she wouldn't mind if I did. Don't ban it. Ban the people who want it banned. That, I think, would be a much better choice.  Doug Barnett

No thanks, this is not for me and going as far as calling it a sport, that is a joke.  Next thing you know we will call the lions and Christians a sporting event in Roman times.  This is nothing more than television going past the boundaries of good quality shows and delivering sensationalism to increase their ratings. Only thing worse than this is the news on television, now that is a bias joke that is more deadly than K1 fighting.   William T.  CA

* I would not attend such an event, however, I do not believe that it should be banned. As long as all participants are consenting adults and no animals or children are harmed it is the right of those interested individuals to participate in these sports. I do not believe in them but it is a "free" country where each of us has the right to pursue our own interests, something which too many people in this country seem to have forgotten!  Heather Doyle
