The Jun Fan Kickboxing phase began in 1965. The arts influencing Jun Fan Kickboxing were from many different structures and origins. Western Boxing, Thai Boxing, Savate,Filipino Sikaran, Northern and Southern Chinese Gung Fu,Wing Chun, and others were used. In 1970, Sifu Dan Inosanto added Filipino Boxing (Panantukan) to the curriculum. This was done primarily for two reasons. First, it added more sophistication to the Western Boxing, and secondly, it added the ability to drill realistically and combatively without major risk of injury Presently, there are many drills and training methods that are being used, expanded upon,and created into the Kickboxing curriculum. As is in athletics, older methods are updated and adapted where necessary, while the fundamental principles remain the same.
The overall goal of Jun Fan Kickboxing is to coordinate the kicking and boxing so that they are totally blended.
