Boxing. Either they'd adjust to the lack of friction by letting their feet slide, or they'd change their action to get an equal-and-oposite effect (backwards kick? Running roundhouse?). Also, they could lean in and out a lot farther! It would be a whole new discipline.

(Ok, actually they'd probably just put on sticky shoes or roughen the ring floor)
