Manitoba Passes OIC Legalizing/Regulating Amateur Boxing, Karate and TaeKwonDo

Manitoba has become the latest Canadian Province to exercise their powers under s. 83 of the Criminal Code designating a list of amateur combat sports which are legal.

Manitoba has passed Order in Council No. 00257 / 2014 which designates amateur Boxing, Karate and TaeKwonDo as legal sports in the Province.  I should note that Boxing and TaeKownDo were legal prior to this OIC designation as they are Olympic Combat Sports, however, the OIC sets out that these sports need to be regulated by a specified body.

The OIC has provided Karate Manitoba, TaeKwonDo Manitoba and the Manitoba Amateur Boxing Association the authority to regulate amateur ‘prize fights’ in their respective sports.
