I've been reading about how karate in the 1950's was taking off with greater acceptance and popularity in mainstream Japan, but full knockdown matches weren't something that was common. I've read how some karateka faced off against Thai boxers and got smashed during the 50's, and I've always wondered how the karate vs muay thai scene looked pre-1964 (when Kenji Kurosaki, Tadashi Nakamura, and Akio Fujihira faced off against 3 Nak Muays in Thailand). I've been reading about how Shorinji kenpo, boxing, and the various karate styles were being examined and ideas exchanged. Arguably, this would form some of the basis for "Japanese Kickboxing." Later on, the Japanese took in Muay Thai techniques. Can anyone give me some more insight into what was going in the 1950's and early 1960's?
