Dutch Kickboxing has a lot of similarities to Boxing and Muay Thai. It’s commonly believed that Dutch Kickboxing is simply a mix between the two.
Dutch Kickboxing really came from several Kyokushin Martial Artists., which join together the fast foot movement and speed of Karate with similar attacks seen and used in Muay Thai. It combines punches, kicks, knees and elbow attacks and some elements of clinch.
Several high level Kyokushin Karatekas fought in Thailand and found that there karate was being devastated by the Thais. They decided to train in Muay Thai and add the speed and agility of Kyokushin to the devastating power and clinch of Muay Thai. Later, they held several Muay Thai tournaments in Holland which began the Dutch Kickboxing we know today.
