IMPAKT Kickboxing is NOT Thai Boxing (Muay Thai), Shotokan Karate, Freestyle Karate, Kung Fu, Tae Kwon Do, Jui Jitsu, Krav Maga, Kickboxercise, Boxercise, Aerobics, Tae Bo, Khai Bo, the list goes on. Kickboxing exists because during the 1970's, Martial Artists across the globe wanted a system whereby they could compete on an equal footing, that is to say, exponents in the West i.e. America and Great Britain could fight against fighters from the East i.e. Japan and Thailand using a system of rules and regulations which were acceptable to both parties. This action started a trend which we are familiar with today. Thus we have a system whereby fights are arranged all over the world following rules laid down by various Kickboxing Associations etc. These fights take place under Kickboxing Rules fighters are allowed to kick to the inner and outer thigh along with kicks above the waist and normal boxing punches.
