    Andy Murray Sadly passed away. Rest In Peace.

    It's a sport with a lot of art behind it, originating in the American format from Karate.

    You could say the art is in the skill involved, just as in the 'sweet science' of boxing?

    I knew that.....

    But if you consider Kickboxing to not be an art, and Judo to be an art, whats that saying? They are both sports.

    Pardon? I don't know much?

    Take a look at your grammar and spelling buddy.

    Wisdom, if you don't treat people more respectfully you will get banned.

    Why exactly can't a sport be an art?

    Wisdom, your profile says your art of choice is TKD, which is a martial sport all its own.

    And keep the insults to yourself, or everyone will see the inherent irony of your screen name.

    A martial art is an art of fighting period. If you practice in a way of fighting, you doin' MA. Thats why there are more martial arts that one can count (go ahead and try). Kick Boxing and Judo both can be used in a fight, both are practiced, both are arts, both are martial. TA-DA!!:D

    Martial art
    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
    Since kick boxing has standard techniques for kicking, blocking, punching, evasions makes it a systematized style of fighting. This is the only attribute required for something to be considered a martial art.

    Yeesh I guess that means Turkish wrestling is a MA as well. Oh well, you win some and you lose some :).

    Kick Boxing and Martial Arts

    The way I see it is that Martial Arts revolve around fighting or defending oneself from harm. In Kickboxing, TKD and Judo you do do this pretty well if trained properly.

    what the hell is this? you tell that to a Muay thai kickboxer that he has no 'art'...he'll show you a good lesson in "art"...the art of BREAKING your LEG with a SHIN KICK...or what about the art of KNOCKING YOU TFO (the f@$% out) with a nice MT round kick to the face? or what about the art of placing a flying knee to your temple....what about...ok....i can go on forever...what the hell is an art to you? stick with your 'crayons' for your art
