History of Kickboxing

Previous Next

It is a form of martial art that is believed to be originated from Thailand. One of the ancient armies popularly known as Muay Boran of Siamese soldiers used to practise this as an act of self-defence. Since its inception from year 1238 to the period of king Chulalongkorn’s ascendance into the throne of Thailand, the game went through many phases and got equally popular too.

In the earlier days, there was no protective equipment that was used, but very soon king Chulalongkorn made the use of equipment like gloves and other protective gears compulsory. This game was modified a bit by Osamu Noguchi in the form of Muay.
