Combat Sports

A combat sport is one where athletes compete against each other by being tasked with disabling or overcoming the opponent through competitive contact. Combat sports include a variety of formal styles with differing rules ranging from boxing and fencing to judo, wrestling, and many more types of martial arts. Combat sports dates back to 2000BC in ancient Egypt where casual combat was used for the overall entertainment of the public. The popularity of modern combat sport has grown to also include female combatants and is now augmented with specialized training provided by sophisticated sporting equipment. Combat sports help to improve focus, confidence, perseverance, physical activity, and will improve a person's self-defense and conflict resolution skills.

UFC Octagon
Elevation drawing of a UFC Octagon with fighters and dimensions

The UFC Octagon is a competition area used in the mixed martial arts (MMA) organization known as the Ultimate Fighting Championship. Athletes compete within the octagon through striking and grappling one another either while standing or on the ground. The athletes use skills or techniques used in various combat sports and martial arts.

An Octagon can be built indoors or outdoors with two gates behind which each athlete and his team stand. The chain link walls consist of fencing material with padding covers on all corners and edges for the safety of the athletes. The design of the UFC Octagon also ensures no athlete has an advantage “cutting off the ring” like in other MMA sports such as boxing.

UFC Octagons have an internal length and width of of 30’ (9.14 m) with a total competition area of 750 ft² (69.7 m²). The UFC Octagon is surrounded by a fence with a height of 5’9”-6’ (1.75-1.83 m) and is often set on a platform between 3.28’-3.94’ (1-1.2 m) from the ground. The catwalk of the platform has a width from 3.28’-3.94’ (1-1.2 m) surrounding the contest area.

Elevation drawing of a Taekwondo Competition Area with fighters and dimensions

The Taekwondo Competition Area consists of a flat non-slip mat with a regulated area in the center. The Taekwondo area can also be made with interlocking foam tiles, roll out mats, folding mats, landing mats made with EVA foam for soft landing and durability.

The competition area is square-shaped and includes the contest area which is octagonally shaped or square-shaped and a safety area. The contestants are usually at two opposing points at the start of the match with a referee to judge the fight.

Taekwondo Competition Areas have a competition length and width of 26.25’ (8 m) for an area of 689 ft² (64 m²). The starting lines separating the two combatants are places 6.56’ (2 m) apart in the center of the competition area.

Boxing Ring
Dimensioned plan drawing of a boxing ring measuring overall width and width between the ropes

Boxing rings are regulated spaces used for amateur and professional boxing matches. Originally earning the ‘ring’ name from early boxing contests performed within casually drawn circular zones, boxing rings today are now square in shape—leading to boxing rings commonly being referred to as ‘squared circles.’ Boxing rings consist of a raised platform within which an inner boxing space is shaped by ropes pulled between poles located at each corner. The surface of a boxing ring is covered in a layer of roughly 1” (25 mm) thick padding and covered with a stretched canvas. Each boxer and team is located on opposite corners of the boxing ring at either the blue or red corner.

Boxing rings have an overall width of 25’7” (280 cm) with an inner space between the ropes of 20’ (610 cm). A perimeter space of 33.5” (85 cm) is provided outside the ropes. A standard boxing ring with a 20’ (610 cm) interior space has an overall area of 655 ft2 (60.9 m2).
