K.1 / Muay Thai / San Shou
(Competitive & Non Competitive)
Welcome to the OWC Kickboxing Program. Our Program is mainly a K.1 Style of Kickboxing, however we train many aspects of Muay Thai and or San Shou (Sanda) for competition purpose.
Since kickboxing is a broad term that can be used both in a wide and narrow sense, this can make understanding the history somewhat difficult. Some of the earliest forms of kickboxing included the various Indochinese martial arts especially muay boran, which developed into modern Muay Thai.
However, in terms of modern competition, it was during the 1950s that a Japanese karateka named Tatsuo Yamada first established an outline of a new sport that combined karate and muay thai.
This was further explored during the early 1960s, when competitions between karate and Muay Thai began, which allowed for rule modifications to take place. By the middle of the decade the first true kickboxing events were being held in Osaka.
By the 1970s and 1980s the sport had expanded beyond Japan and had reached North America and Europe. It was during this time that many of the most prominent governing bodies were formed.
In Japan the sport was widely popular and was regularly broadcast on television before going into a dark period during the 1980s.
In North America the sport had unclear rules so kickboxing and full contact karate were essentially the same sport.
In Europe the sport found marginal success but did not thrive until the 1990s.
Since the 1990s the sport has been mostly dominated by the Japanese K-1 promotion, with some competition coming from other promotions and mostly pre-existing governing bodies.
Along with the growing popularity in competition, there has been an increased amount of participation and exposure in the mass media, fitness, and self-defence.
At Oshawa Wing Chun & Martial arts, we focus mainly on k1 Kickboxing, however, we provide options for competition in K1, Muay Thai, & San Shou rules.

Just like the rent, class fee's are due by the first of every month! The cost is a set amount every month based on the cost of the facility and is not based on ones attendance. Classes are still oporating even if you are unable to attend or chose not to. Students that attend classes regularly and maintain an at home practice regime, excel the fastest. It is up to you, to dedicate yourself and make the equipment and class fee's worth your time and money!
A class fee is often misconstrued as the student paying for the art, when in actuality, the art is free. One could never afford to pay for the time and experienced given and received by the Sifu. The Student pays for the lights and roof. Everyone must pay and respectfully pay on time. This is a great show of respect and support for your club, your club family, your Sifu, and yourself!
