Best of the Best: Championship Karate (also known as Super Kick Boxing and The Kick Boxing) is a kick boxing game that features black belt kick boxing masters. The object is to win the kick boxing championship by defeating an array of kick boxing masters in a series of fighting matches. The Sega Genesis version is one of the few games to offer support for the Sega Activator motion controller.
The game was originally released in 1990 in Europe as André Panza Kick Boxing for various computers as well as the TurboGrafx-16.
Martial artist/actor Ron Yuan stated in a 1994 interview that “I know a lot of pure gamers will disagree, but the best SNES fighting game from a purely technical martial arts point of view is Best of the Best. It didn’t get much notoriety, but my friends and I know martial arts, and they go nuts whenever we play.”
