    Do your research. Kickboxing evolved from karate....One of the original Top kickboxers....joe Lewis a black belt in karate, bill Wallace, benny the jet all top karate black belts. Kickboxing comes from karate. Yes now it’s evolved more into its own thing but kickboxing 100% has its roots from karate

    I think what everyone should keep in mind is kick boxing is a specific kind of competition. Anyone training to compete will train in a specific way, hopefully with good coaches and training partners.

    Same goes for Muay Thai, boxing, MMA, etcetera.

    boxing + kick = kickboxing
    kickboxing + throw = Sanda
    Sanda + ground skill = MMA
    MMA + weapon fight = gladiator

    Did Bruce Lee use MT roundhouse kick instead of the TKD roundhouse kick?
