Although I couldn't find an entry for this in a dictionary, I know that it exists. A term for athletes who compete in a sport simliar to boxing but which permits the use of the legs 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 and evil 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.
