Kickboxing is a well-recognised combat sport combining both martial arts and boxing together using various kicks from styles such as karate and taekwondo with punching techniques from boxing. Some people call it full contact karate with boxing.
There are many different styles of kickboxing such as Muay Thai kickboxing, American kickboxing, European kickboxing and many more. It all started in the late 1950s when karate experts wanted to try out their karate styles full contact in competitions which was not allowed at the time. They organised bouts with Muay Thai boxers which were full contact. Throughout the 1960s some of those karate experts went on to learn many new moves and techniques from the Muay Thai boxers and developed their skills into a style that is known today as kickboxing.
