Kickboxing is a very generic term that refers to the striking elements of the martial arts. In simple terms it is the ability to use your hands/punches (the boxing part) and your legs – the kicking part.
In the wider sense, it includes all stand-up combat sports that allow both punching and kicking, including Savate, Muay Thai, Indian boxing, Burmese boxing, Sanshou, styles of karate (Japanese, Korean and Okinawan) western boxing, Yaw-Yan, kung fu and Capoeira
Each different kickboxing style has a focus on different aspects and may specialise in one area, ie western boxing focuses on punching!!.
