Kickboxing / Sport Karate is a sport that combines kicking for combat with the principles of boxing (punching) and has been in existence since the early 1960s. Its conception came about because of the desire of Martial Artists to test their skills against each other in a safe and controlled environment. 

A high level of fitness both mentally and physically is required for this dynamic and effective Martial Art. It incorporates kicking, punching, and sweeping. Kickboxing has been particularly successful over the last number of years in Great Britain and has produced a number of World/European Champions in their respective weight divisions.
