The A.K.A. was established in 2002 and was the global pioneer of K1 Kickboxing bouts under 'Controlled-Contact' rules that is now commonly known as K1-Light.

Today, K1-Ligh
t contests are offered by all of the major sanctioning bodies, such as WKA, ISKA, WAKO, IKF & ICO.

Initially A.K.A. England offered fighters the opportunity to compete for Area Titles and English titles. A circuit of events was build across England with shows regularly held in Warrington, Leigh, Manchester, Darlington, Milton-Keynes, Birmingham.

Foreign fighters began to enter the events, and eventually European, International and World Titles were sanctioned.

The A.K.A. Co-Sanctioned these Championships Titles with the I.K.F. International Kickboxing Federation until 2018.

In 2020, during the time of Covid lockdowns, the A.K.A. began to work with W.K.A. World Kickboxing Association.

The W.K.A. were delivering PPV-Studio events online, without audiences, due to the Covid restrictions on public gatherings. A.K.A. England ran several succesfull PPV-Studio events between 2021 and 2023 featuring W.K.A. Championship titles.

In 2024
, A.K.A. England returns to events in hired public venues / sports halls with audiences. These events will be featuring Area, English and British Championship titles in both the formats of K1-Light ( Controlled-Contact ) and K1-Rules ( Full-Contact ).
