    American kickboxing has its good and bad points.
    Some people would argue that it has a very restrictive nature due to not allowing kicks below the waistline and restrictions on clinchwork and knees (i.e. NO clinch/knee/elbows).

    I personally think it is OK. Now when you get 2 very good practitioners, say one who is a VERY good kicker and one who is a good boxer, you get fireworks!!!

    At a novice level I would say that Thai style or K-1 style kickboxing are miles better.
    At the top level american kickboxing is spectacular.

    yes ive been told about thai boxing and it looks alot of fun but i couldnt find any clubs near me so i jumped at the chance for american kickboxing btw at my club we train knees, elbows and kicks below the belt even though were told we cant use them in tornys.

    In "american kickboxing" also known as freestyle karate semi contact kickboxing, most of the time a good boxer messes them up, as the kicks aren't hard enough to do damage or ward off opponents, the side and front kicks are good and good kicker can devistate with axe kicks and hook kicks, jumping spinning back kicks etc. But under k-1 rules they stuggle due to a clear lack of power in the kicks. One thing a lot of them do have is awesome footwork due to the points fighting that most of them do, with blitzing.
    I think solid muay thai, with speed and good footwork cross trained with boxing getting good boxing defense is a truly devistating combo.

    Anybody got any links (perhaps youtube?) to these top level american kickboxing matches so i can see what its like?

    I only ever watch thai and K1 rules so im interested in these "explosive" or "fireworks" that have been spoken of, sounds like it could be great to watch. Cheers
