The Background of Kickboxing
Kickboxing is a stand-up contact sport that was originally built from Karate and Muay Thai techniques. It became a popular sport in Japan in the 1960s, before developing a following in the United States in the 1970s. In 1974, the Professional Karate Association held the first World Championships, bringing the sport to prominence. The core principles and moves used in kickboxing are a hybrid of a variety of traditional martial arts styles. As the years have progressed, kickboxing has brought about even more hybridization with many forms integrating ground fighting techniques from Brazilian jiu-jitsu and folk wrestling. Today kickboxing is not just for the experienced athlete or trained fighter. While it is still a competitive contact sport, many people all over the world practice it as a form of general self-defense or exercise.
