That's an absurd assertion. The discipline of contemporary American Boxing doesn't even entail attacks which strike below the waist, nor does its mastery require any knowledge of effective kicking. I don't mean to imply that no practical combat arts have been developed in the Americas, merely that Boxing is not among them. It's a sport, and its students are constrained by rules which your opponent will not observe.
