Kickboxing

Kickboxing is a martial art in which competitors wear gloves to throw punches and kick with their bare feet. A Japanese karateka first established an outline of Kickboxing by combining Karate and Muay. Kickboxing is contested in a ring and on a tatami (mat).

Sport
The World Association of Kickboxing Organisations (WAKO) supports seven different styles of Kickboxing, four of them are on the tatami and three are in the ring. 

History 
It was during the 1950s that a Japanese Karateka named Tatsuo Yamada first established an outline of a new sport that combined Karate and Muaythai.
By the middle of the 1960s, the first official Kickboxing events were being held in Osaka before the sport expanded beyond Japan and had reached North America, Europe and later worldwide.
WAKO originated in Europe in 1976 and formulated the rules and regulations for the sport.
