Kickboxing is thought of as a modern martial art however it has its origins to
Muay Thai and Chinese Boxing. Muay Thai or Thai Boxing is the national
sport of Thailand and it can be traced to ancient ancient battlefield of
Thai army. The Thai army besides weapons such as swords and
batons, used close fighting such as arms, legs, knees and elbows. In
early Thai Boxing there were no rules, no weight divisions or time
limits and it was a very dangerous sport. Rules, boxing gloves and time
limits were introduced over the past 50 years.
Kickboxing legends such as Benny "the Jet", Joe Lewis and Bill
"Superfoot" emerged, and Kickboxing became an international sport with
the founding of the World Kickboxing Association.
Kickboxing combines the hand techniques of
Western Boxing with the kicks of Chinese Boxing. In early 1970s,
Karate experts arranged competitions that allowed full contact punches and
kicks and was called contact Karate. It started because the full contact
fighting was not allowed in karate, and was fought in open matted areas
and later in regular size boxing rings.
Chinese Boxing is the traditional martial art that trains the body and
mind for health and self defense. It was practiced in China in the
military and many Chinese temples, including the Shaolin Temple
developed and spread the Chinese Boxing.
