    kickboxing belts/ranks?

    someone shed some light on this please. i'm tired of hearing of belts in kickboxing and being confused.

    it's generally in the context of full contact kickboxing in the 80s. i know at least the full contact scene here was heavily related to full contact karate and boxing, so i'm guessing it generally refers to hard karate cross-trained with boxing, and competing under kickboxing rules.

    is there any particular style of karate which is the one generally referred to for this? i know of one school here which teaches kickboxing and has belts, even though they don't actually wear them. they also just refer to the style as "kickboxing" or "full contact".

    back then, most striking styles competed in tournaments, karate, TKD (used to be some badasses here back then) and such.

    this came to mind again when reading Yoel Judah's wiki entry:

    Boxing & kickboxing career

    He had a brief boxing career in the 1980s, going 1-1 in two fights. He is also a 7th-degree black belt and former 3-time world kickboxing champion.

    so? anyone? Bueler? Bueler?

    Only trainers have belts in moo tie, and they're kinda like BJJ. The longer you're in the game for (as well as how many good fighters you produce) the higher your rank is.

    Old school 80's kickboxing BB's could be in reference to some of the TKD and Krotty schools that used to compete.

      I do know that the WKA has belts for kickboxing and I think also for MT.
      Sometimes you lose and sometimes the other guy wins.

      At this point I don't owe anybody an explenation.

      Schools I trained at:
      Lotus Club Cetepe Liberdade Sao Paulo
      Renzo Gracie NYC
      New York Combat Sambo

        Our weekend kickboxing teacher has a black belt. I'll have to ask what it is since I've only heard of it in passing.

          PKA, WKA and several other schools give out belts in kickboxing. I've always found it silly considering I feel that kickboxing is a rule set not necessarily a style. Jon Hackleman technically gives out kickboxing belts. It is what it is. I should give myself a kickboxing belt. Then I would be really cool.

                            Actually Michael DePasquale senior awarded it to him in kickboxing. Joe's system is "american Kicboxing".

                              what was the belt system, and who gave it to you? did it go the standard white blah blah blah black model?

                              and i thought this thread was going to be about title belts and the ranking of fighters. i never heard of krarate-esque belts in kick boxing.
