Konstantin Selivanov is the founder of PowerHouse Kickboxing and Fitness, as well as the creator of Bokatai Kickboxing style.
Bokatai is a style of kickboxing where special attention is placed on defense and the ability to control your opponent and the situation you are in.
The style has developed naturally, as Konstantin's own kickboxing style was evolving and morphing during his 40-year Martial Arts journey.
Throughout his fighting and teaching career, Konstantin was combining the best of each style to create a superior style that would increase his effectiveness as a fighter. Only later Konstantin named that style, "Bokatai" in honor of the disciplines it came from - Kickboxing, Boxing, Kung Fu, Karate, Muay Thai, and Tae Kwon Do.
With his degree from Russia, in sports and exercise science, Konstantin was able to apply his knowledge of body mechanics and physiology, into creating a kickboxing style where athletes use the right body mechanics to achieve maximum power and speed, while keeping the body aligned and injury free.
Bokatai kickboxing is a combination of the most effective techniques from the following combat styles:
- defense, utilizes technique from Muay Thai, Wing Chun (Kung Fu), and Western Boxing.
- offensive leg technique of Bokatai is elevated thanks to the effectiveness and distructive power of knee strikes, round-houses and front kicks of Muay Thai and Karate, as well as side-kicks, back-kicks and hill kicks, and their spinning versions, of Tae Kwon Do.
- superior hand technique comes from Western Boxing, and elbow strikes of Muay Thai.
