Kickboxing is a group of stand-up combat sports based on kicking and punching, historically developed from Karate, Muay Thai, Taekwondo and Western Boxing. Kickboxing is practiced for self-defense, general fitness, or as a competitive sport.
Historically, kickboxing can be considered a hybrid martial art formed from the combination of elements of various traditional styles. This approach became increasingly popular since the 1970s, and since the 1990s, kickboxing has contributed to the emergence of mixed martial arts via further hybridization with ground fighting techniques from Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and Folk Wrestling. Kickboxing was the fighting style used by Kobra in Deception and Armageddon.
