Material & Methods: Thirty one bouts were videotaped and 31 kickboxers were evaluated.

Results: The most common demerit was forbidden holds of the rival (it concerned 13 (41.9%) competitors and it was 31.7% of all demerits). Competitors made on average 1.32 demerits. The effectiveness of the attack was on average 46.63 points, activeness of the attack was on average 91.61 points, efficiency of the attack was on average 2.66 points.

Conclusions: The largest group of competitors had 2 demerits in a bout. The largest number of demerits in a bout was 3. Forbidden holding was the most common demerit of kickboxers in K1 formula. Effectiveness, activeness and efficiency of the attack were on a high level and were not connected to the number of demerits in a bout.
