What is Kickboxing?
Kickboxing is a term used for many types of standup martial arts that have developed around the world which include Muay Thai, Savate (French Kickboxing), Full contact Karate, Japanese Kickboxing (K-1), Kyutooki (Korean Kickboxing), Sanda (Chinese Kickboxing) and Bando (Burmese Kickboxing).
The origins of Full Contact Kickboxing can be found in Thailand in the 2,000 year old discipline of Muay Thai fighting. Muay Thai or Thai Boxing was devised, initially, for self-defence in the forms of Muay Boran (Thai self defence system used by the King's bodyguards) and Krabbi Kabong (Thai Sword Fighting), but later developed into a ring sport as these traditional arts were no longer needed in modern times.
The common theme with all the arts is they use a gloved (boxing) fist using hand Techniques similar to western style boxing; mixed with kicking techniques and other Striking weapons such as the elbow and knee. Clinching, sweeps and throws are also allowed in some Kickboxing style matches.
Kickboxing is a combat sport martial art that readily lends itself to self- defence. Along with this, the goal in kickboxing is to utilize any number of combinations of punches, kicks, elbows, and sometimes throws to disable an opponent.
