KICKBOXING refers to the sport of using martial-arts-style kicks and boxing-style punches to defeat an apponent in a similar way to that of standard boxing. Kickboxing is a standing sport and does not allow continuation of the fight once a combatant has reached the ground. Kickboxing is often practiced for general fitness, or as a full contact sport.In the full-contact sport the male boxers are bare-chested wearing shorts and protective gear including: mouth-guard, hand-wraps, 10oz boxing gloves, groin-guard, shin-pads, kick-boots, and optional protective helmet (usually for those under 18.) The female boxers will wear a tank top and chest protection in addition to the male clothing/protective gear. The term kickboxing was created by the Japanese boxing promoter Osamu Noguchi for a variant of Muay Thai and Karate that he created in the 1950s. Kickboxing is popular in mixed martial arts and professional wrestling competition. For example, professional wrestler Kenta Kobayashi mixes his very experienced kickboxing style with wrestling to defeat his opponents.
Some common punching techniques include:
jab, cross, hook, uppercut and back fist.
Common kicking techniques are: front kick, side kick, semi-circular kick and roundhouse kick.
