About the Course

Kickboxing refers to the sport of using martial-arts-style kicks and boxing-style punches to defeat an opponent in a similar way to that of standard boxing. It is an official sport recognised by the Olympic Council of Asia (OCA).

It is a full-contact sport. Kickboxing competition athletes are required to wear important protective gear such as; mouth-guard, hand-wraps, 10-oz boxing gloves, groin-guard, shin-pads, kick-boots (if applicable), and headgear.

Kickboxing is often confused with Muay Thai, also known as Thai Boxing. The two sports are similar, however, in Thai Boxing, kicks below the belt are allowed, as are strikes with knees and elbows whereas they are forbidden in kickboxing. Kickboxing was incorporated into the Asian Martial Arts Games in 2009.
