American Full Contact Karate

Here is a classic bout between 2 Kickboxing champions, Ross Scott and Jerry Rhome. This is early full contact karate which would later become American Kickboxing. This was before they used boxing gloves and they just started using a boxing ring. This helps give history of full contact martial arts in America. Traditional Karate tournanemt fighters sought a full contact platform which became kickboxing. In the 70s, 80s, and 90s American Kickboxing developed. In the 90s and 2000s, Muay Thai, NHB (early 90s becomes MMA by late 90s). Now the rise of Glory Kickboxing. See all the cool stuff we have to study.
