Information about Thai boxing (Muay Thai) and Kickboxing

Thai Boxing (Muay Thai) is a highly effective martial art from Thailand, which includes a complex of physical and psychological preparation for a sporting and real duel. One of the fundamental ideas of Muay Thai is the use of one's own body as a weapon. Known as the art of "Eight arms of the body" and includes physically strong well-set attacks from both fists, elbows, knees and feet. Due to its high efficiency, Thai boxing became widespread internationally in the early twentieth century, when Thai boxers began participating in professional boxing and kickboxing competitions (later K1). The traditional "calling card" of Thai boxing is clinch (or rather, the fight in the clinch), in which the Thai boxers are particularly strong. Amateur tournaments are held according to the rules of IMFA (International Federation of Amateur Muay Thai).

Kickboxing is a fighting sport that uses punches and kicks. Kickboxing, as a separate discipline, dates back to 1974 (then it was called "Full contact karate" or "Sports Karate"). This year the World Federation WAKO (World Association of Kickboxing Organizations) was founded, which became the organizer of sports competitions with uniform rules. To date, WAKO, WKA, ISKA, WKU and WKF are the largest global organizations and annually hold international championships. Initially, kickboxing was banned low circular kicks in the opponent's thighs (low kick or low kick), but recently more and more popular are gaining versions of kickboxing, including these powerful and effective blows (for example, Kickboxing K1 version). The main differences between kickboxing and Thai boxing: lack of struggle in the clinch, lack of elbow strikes and a ban on stitching the legs. Due to the similarity of the species, athletes often participate in both kickboxing and Thai boxing (muay thai) competitions.
