Kickboxing

Kickboxing is a modern and effective combat sport, which includes a variety of techniques with punches and kicks as well as their dodging and blocking techniques. The discipline was developed originally as a competitive sport, where individuals practise only the techniques that can be used in match situations.

KICKBOXING AS A HOBBY

Intensive kickboxing is suitable for women and men of all ages as well as young people as a combat sport and fitness training. It is also possible to practice it on a competitive level.

This competitive and straightforward sport guarantees to develop the practitioner’s strength, endurance, speed and movability. Moreover, effective techniques help to build up self-defence skills.

HISTORY OF KICKBOXING

The Americans started to organise open karate tournaments in 1955, where practitioners of different styles tried their hand at competing in close fight tournaments. Punches and kicks were permitted techniques at these tournaments. In the 1960s – 1970s, the Americans developed techniques even further and started calling this match style ‘’full contact’’. Full contact included the usage of hand techniques from boxing and Japanese kickboxing, which was a modified and more mobile version of Thai boxing. The matches quickly moved from tatami floors to a ring and gained huge popularity especially on American television.

Nowadays, this discipline is usually called kickboxing, regardless of the classification of match styles used in the sport (Kickboxing, Full Contact, Light Contact, Semi-Contact, K-1).

THE MATCH

The safety equipment used in competitions includes foot guards, shin guards, groin protection, boxing gloves and mouthguard as well as head protection for the beginners. About 5-8% of kickboxing practitioners are also competing in tournaments.

DIFFERENT FROM THAIBOXING

It is forbidden to clinch the opponent in kickboxing. Knee and elbow techniques are also not allowed, apart from K-1 match rules, where knee strikes are allowed. The training focuses on developing and improving good muscle strength, endurance, reflexes and vision.

SUCCESS OF THE FINNS

The Finnish have succeeded in this sport very well and achieved medals even in World Championships on beginner and professional level. Women and men interested to participate in competitions have an opportunity to take part in national or international kickboxing competitions.

RANKING SYSTEM

Kickboxingissa on käytössä vyöarvot (keltainen, oranssi, sininen, ruskea ja musta); Vöiden suorittaminen ja käyttäminen vaihtelee kouluittain tyylisuunnasta riippuen.

WHO IS IT SUITABLE FOR?

Kickboxing is suitable for women and men of all ages as well as young people as a combat sport and fitness training. For those, interested in competing, it is also possible to practice it on a competitive level and participate in national and world championships.

SPORT FEDERATION
