spordiala ja soovisin teada saada, kas ja kus on Eesti üldse võimalik kickpoksiga tegeleda. Lisaks huvitas mind see, mida kickpoks täpsemalt endast kujutab, sest tean, et võitluskunste on mitmeid ja pealtnäha neis väga suuri erinevusi ei märka. Ajalugu Kickboxing e. kickpoks on spordiala, mis sisaldab jala- ja käelööke. Jalalöögid pärinevad karatest, taipoksist ja taekwondost, käelõõgid klassikalisest poksist. Kõige esimesena kasutas terminit Kickboxing jaapani poksi edendaja Osamu Noguchi 1950. aastal. Kickpoksi tunti alguses Full Contact Karate nime all. 1970 aastal toimusid USA-s esimesed kohtumised karatekade ja poksijate vahel, mis saidki aluseks uue spordiala tekkele. Mõned kickpoksi koolkonnad kasutavad harrastaja taseme määratlemiseks (nagu traditsioonilised budoalad) vöösüsteemi: valge, kollane, oranz, roheline, sinine, pruun, must vöö. Esimeseks kickpoksi meistriks tuli Joe Lewis, kellest sai kickpoksi suurimaid propageerijaid

Estonian Academy of Kickboxing Irina Grjadova KNT3 Mis on kikkpoks? Kickboxing ehk kikkpoks on täiskontaktne võitlussport, milles on lubatud käe- ja jalalöögid. Pikema ajalooga on Jaapani kikkpoksi taust, mille loojaks 1950. aastatel peetakse Tatsuo Yamadat. Kikkpoks jaguneb Jaapani ja Ameerika kikkpoksiks. Kui Jaapani kikkpoksis on lubatud ka põlvelöögid ning löömine allapoole vööd, siis Ameerika kikkpoksis on keelatud nii põlve- kui ka küünarnukilöögid ja löögid allapoole vööd.

In seconds all the parties would forget the exchange, which was just one beat in the natural tempo of the city. As I melded into the flow of foot traffic and set off toward the gym, a smile teased my mouth. Ah, New York, I thought, feeling settled again. You rock. I'd planned on warming up on a treadmill, then capping off the hour with a few of the machines, but when I saw that a beginners' kickboxing class was about to start, I followed the mass of waiting students into that instead. By the time it was over, I felt more like myself. My muscles quivered with the perfect amount of fatigue and I knew I'd sleep hard when I crashed later. "You did really well." I wiped the sweat off my face with a towel and looked at the young man who spoke to me. Lanky and sleekly muscular, he had keen brown eyes and flawless café au lait skin. His lashes were
