Although I couldn't find an entry for this in a dictionary, I know that it exists. A term for athlete
s who compete
in a sport simliar to boxing
but which permits the use of the leg
s for fighting as well.
Also a movie staring Jean-Claude Van Damme
about two brothers who are kickboxers. They travel to Taiwan
, where the older brother is defeated and partially paralyzed
by a vicious
fighter named "Tiger
" Tong Po
. The younger brother, Jean-Claude, seeks revenge on Tong Po and, with the help of an eccentric
trainer, he learns the art of Muiy Tai
fighting and defeats Tong Po in an exciting final match. If you like slow motion karate
, you should see this movie.
