Kickboxing (in Japanese kikkubokushingu) is a group of stand-up combat sports based on kicking and punching, historically developed from Karate, Muay Thai and Western Boxing. It is practiced as a contact sport consisting of technical executions and semi contact or ‘light continuous’ sparring for the purpose of scoring points - with an emphasis on delivery, speed, and technique. Under such rules, gradings and fights are conducted presenting belts to classify the fighters in order of experience and ability.
Each class involve a light warm up, followed by a combination of punching and kicking to pads, where the emphasis is on technique. A large portion of the class is on grading techniques, where you work towards obtaining your black belt. This style of kickboxing is a 9 Grade system, which involves light continuous sparring. Full protective equipment is worn at all times when sparring.
