Girls S-Cup Event August 23

The Shootboxing organization, presenters of the bi-yearly S-Cup event, have announced the highest profile all-female kickboxing show in quite some time. Coming up on August 23 they will host the “Girls S-Cup”, a one-night 8 woman tournament. The event is presented in partnership with Japanese women’s MMA organization Jewels.

First round matches are:

Rena vs. Masako Yoshida
Saori Ishioka vs. Ai Takahashi
Misato Tomita vs. Madoka Okada
Mei “V Hajime” Yamaguchi vs. Lim Soo Jung

Female kickboxing has not yet seen much mainstream acceptance, but with the recent interest in female MMA thanks to Gina Carano and Cris Cyborg, the time may be right for a company to push in to this area. It will be interesting to see how this event does and if there is further interest in women’s kickboxing at a higher level of competition.
