Kickboxing/american kickboxing


Hello, i am thinking of trying kickboxing competition out. I haved boxed for close to 20 yrs now. Kickboxing is something new to me, but im thinking of trying.i am more intrested in kicks, boxing, and not so much knees and elbows.I guess i was wondering what tournaments to compete in? Just kicks and boxing. Also how often these tourn and where. And last wuestion whats the max age for a pro?

Thanks John

Hey John,
 You would want to fight kickboxing fights in American rules or international rules. When you fight the rules are agreed upon by both fighters.  You just have to find a kickboxing promoter to start fighting.  The age to be pro is depending on your local state athletic commission and if you are physically fit and pass a cat scan.
I hope I answered your questions

Good luck .
