Thread: Any Kickboxers Out There?

    Default Any Kickboxers Out There?

    Hey guys,
    as some people might know I do kickboxing (not muay thai btw) and i was wondering everyone on here seems to do muay thai now I know muay thai is far more popular and i'm not trying to start the trolls saying muay thai>kickboxing. I am just wondering is there anyone else on this thread that does kickboxing/points style?

    I mostly train kick boxing, Call me a tart but in sparing I would rather take a foot to the face than a knee or an elbow.

    We do a little bit of knees & Elbows, & Ground work things like that, but its mostly kick boxing, few guys from the school fight (but not me yet) and I train under an amazing guy called Justyn Billingham in Ascot.

    Isn't 'kickboxing' just full contact karate?

    I heard that kickboxing beats Muay Thai any day of the week, but Aikido beats them both.

    I used to just train kickboxing about 5 years ago fought a few times gave up due to losing interest really.. I think it's had it's day, there aren't as many shows anymore (just kickboxing) and some guys have moved out of kickboxing to persue mma.

    I personally feel that K1 and Thai is more exciting to watch and has a more "danger" element to the bouts than kickboxing, and the general public who are going to see some fights would probably be more inclined to watch mma to be fair as it is extremely popular!!

    At one time there was clubs everywhere like 4 in town now your lucky if theres 1 that just does kickboxing.

    It's a dying art in my opinion and it's a bit of a shame.

    If you go to a good kickboxing club it will definately help striking ...Thai is arguably the more powerful kicking wise but your hands will be better for sure.

    What didnt you like about the Thai club?
