The ferocity of the kick has also raised many questions regarding safety at such events and why the competitors were not wearing safety equipment such as headgear like other sports. The PPO Karate Championship was held in Ulyanovsk, and the rules have no restriction on strikes to the head. Participants are fully aware that headgear is not required. Although Moskalenko won the match, the legality of the kick is sure to be challenged in the future as Molskalenko was on his back after delivering the overhead kick before his opponent hit the ground.
