Kickboxing; the Hybrid Martial Art

A combination of several martial arts, kickboxing is a high-intensity combat sport based primarily on punching and kicking. Originating in Japan in the 1950s, kickboxing incorporates elements of karate, boxing, and taekwondo. The sport’s global appeal has increased steadily since 1974 when the first world championship was held in Los Angeles.
