Kickboxing is, perhaps, the most underrated combat sport: it’s the foundation and predecessor of mixed martial arts, and a long-practiced tradition in its own right. Kickboxing doesn’t have the prestige or mass appeal of hands-only boxing, but still cultivates in its practitioners a skillset that’s more useful and applicable in real-world self-defense situations. Of course it’s also true that kickboxing is a great form of exercise for general fitness. Many people practice non-contact cardio kickboxing as a fitness routine, but traditional combat-focused kickboxing is certainly a rigorous workout as well.
Although there are many styles of kickboxing, perhaps the most popular kind of kickboxing is Muay Thai, which literally means “Thai kickboxing.” Muay Thai has gained international popularity over the last few decades, not least because many successful MMA fighters either began as Muay Thai trainees or continued to practice the style throughout their MMA careers. But the history of Muay Thai is a long one – much longer than standard Western kickboxing, which only really took hold in the mid-20th century. Muay Thai, on the other hand, has flourished in Thailand since the 1700s.
