The Zen MMA kickboxing program is based on the disciplines of both Muay Thai and K-1 Dutch-style kickboxing. Muay Thai is one of the oldest and most effective forms of kickboxing and is unique in allowing punches, kicks, knees, elbows, clinch fighting, throws, and takedowns. While many forms of modern kickboxing are limited to punches and kicks such as K-1.
