What is Shoot-Boxing?

Shoot-Boxing is a stand-up martial art. It’s like mixed martial arts but without ground wrestling. It’s closer to the of Sanda, Muay Thai or Lethwei, allowing punches, elbows, kicks, knees but with the addition of throws and the standing submissions. Shoot-Boxing isn’t an ancient martial arts like Muay Thai, it’s a modern style, a hybrid of Muay Thai / Japanese style (K1) Kickboxing & Wrestling styles. It was founded by the former Japanese Kickboxer Takeshi Caesar in 1985. Albert Kraus, Buakaw Banchamek and Andy Souwer have all fought Shoot-Boxing rules.


It’s allowed in Shoot-Boxing to hit all the body using punches, elbows, knees, and kicks, except throat, spine, nape, and groin area. Besides that, the knees are allowed only to the body in the regular class. Hitting during clinching is allowed the same as in Muay Thai. It’s not allowed to hit while you or your opponent is on the ground.


It’s allowed to throw the opponent to the ground by any means, whether you remain standing or falling onto the opponent. It’s not allowed to make his neck head hit the ground first, or causing him to fall down on his knees. It’s prohibited to hold on the ropes to give you more strength, and it’s not allowed also to throw the opponent out of the ring.

Immobilisation and Submission

You can block and clinch while fighting, but points will be counted just for the fighter who gains an advantage position from that. It’s allowed to change the positions while blocking the opponent trying to make a submission by strangling him or twisting his arm. If the opponent surrendered or lost his consciousness, the other one wins. The referee can stop an ongoing submission move if it is dangerous for the fighter, and one point will be deducted from him in this case.

Submission Grappling & Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a martial art, combat sport system that focuses on grappling and especially ground fighting. Submission Grappling & BJJ promotes the concept that a smaller, weaker person can successfully defend against a bigger, stronger, heavier assailant by using proper technique, leverage, and most notably, taking the fight to the ground, and then applying joint-locks and choke holds to defeat the opponent.
