history:

According to the columbia university, the history of kickboxing starts in los angeles when Joe Lewis, the first Professional Karate Association PKA World Heavyweight Kickboxing Champion, was a pioneer of full contact karate and fought in the prototype full contact bout in Long Beach, CA in Jan 1970.

It was Lewis who contacted karate innovator Mike Anderson with a view to organizing and promoting the new sport of full contact karate, as it was called in those days. Full contact karate, now called kickboxing, was officially born in Los Angeles in September 1974 when Anderson, together with Don and Judy Quine, formed the first world sanctioning body for the new sport and named it the PKA. They promoted the first full contact World Professional Karate Championships. This was the beginning of modern kickboxing.
