Kickboxing – Best Combat Sport

Kickboxing is a combination of stand-up combat sports based on kicking and punching which is developed from karate, Muay Thai and Western boxing. It is practiced for self-defense, general fitness, or as a contact sport.

It is a broad term that can be used both in a wide and narrow sense, the earliest forms of the sport included the various Indochinese martial arts especially muay boran, which developed into modern muay thai. In 1950 a Japanese karateka named Tatsuo Yamada first established an outline of a new sport that combined karate and muay thai.
