History: Japanese Karate

Typically, American kickboxing is above
the waist. No leg kicks, knee strikes, or elbows. It’s not as brutal or
hard on the body as many of the older kickboxing systems like Muay
Thai.

First American kickboxing fight: Joe
Lewis vs Greg Baines. Lewis won by KO in round 2. Joe Lewis was the
first martial arts superstar. He won the heavyweight title on ABC TV in
1974. 

In 1974 Mike Anderson created the Professional Kickboxing Association (PKA). The PKA  World Championships aired on ABC in 1974 as the highest rated program of the season. 

Joe Lewis won Heavyweight.

Jeff Smith won Light-Heavyweight. 

Bill “Superfoot” Wallace won Middleweight. 

Isais Duenas won Lightweight.
