History of Kickboxing

Kickboxing is a combat sport based on kicking and punching. Kickboxing offers one discipline in The World Games: K1 Rules.

K1 Rules is a discipline where the intention is to beat an opponent using legal hand and foot techniques for the purpose of scoring points. The emphasis of these rules centers around delivery, speed and technique. Competition is held in a boxing ring with three rounds of two minutes each. Every bout is scored by three independent judges who must register every point. To be registered as a point, hand or foot techniques must be completed with full power, have landed on a legal target area and be hit from an adequate distance and balance. Every hand or foot technique is scored as one point. Protective gear includes a mouth-guard, hand-wraps, boxing gloves, groin-guard, shin-pads, kick-boots and headgear.
