Kickboxing is a martial art combining boxing and kicking (fighting sport). In 1950, it first appeared in Japan, it has spread throughout the globe. Now it's one of the most famous combat sports.
Japanese kickboxing originated in the late 1950s and since then has had contests. American kickboxing originated in the 1970s and became prominent in September 1974, when the first World Championships were held by the Professional Karate Association (PKA). Kickboxing can historically be regarded a hybrid martial art created by combining components of different traditional styles. Since the 1970s, this strategy has become increasingly common, and since the 1990s, kickboxing has contributed to the creation of mixed martial arts through further hybridization with Brazilian jiu-jitsu ground combat methods and folk wrestling.
Like other sports, the game has a number of rules and regulations to safeguard players ' health and security. To regulate their corresponding kickboxing matches, each country has its own federation. Therefore, the laws may alter slightly from one country to another, but the main laws stay the same.
