Although introduced in the 1960s as a Japanese anglicism by Japanese boxing promoter Osamu Noguchi for a hybrid martial art combining Muay Thai and karate (which he had introduced in 1958), “kickboxing” is now used in short and broad terms to describe a multitude of international variants based on, as the name would suggest, kicking and punching.

Practiced for self-defense, general fitness, or as a contact sport, kickboxing has no single international governing body but is broadly represented through worldwide full-contact kickboxing promotions such as K-1 and It’s Showtime.

Besides full-contact, Kickboxing fights also take place in semi-contact and light-contact bouts whereby the primary goal is to score more than your opponent using controlled legal techniques with focus and speed.
