Shin-kicking, sometimes called shin sung shing or shimm think, is an aggressive sport which involves two contestants trying to kick each other’s shin on the opponent’s shin in order to propel their opponent into the ground. It is being described as an Oriental martial art. In China, it is known as Bian Shi, in Japan it is called Karate, and in Korea it is known as Goju-shing. In Singapore, it is known as Jik Bo, in Thailand it is known as Muay Thai, in Cambodia it is known as Khmer Krating and in Philippines it is called Manapik. In the United States, it is called American Shin-Kicking.
Shin-kicking was first known by the name of Korean Karate.
However, it was changed because it became popular in the US and it was then called GreenAll. In the US, the only place where it is practiced is at prisons. It was not considered a sport until it was changed into a competitive activity.
Today, Shin-kicking is a popular sport, and it has even spread to China, Japan and other countries. The tournaments are organized by cotswolds and they call it GreenAll or Green Boots. The name was chosen because it resembles the shape of an American roundhouse kick. In the early years of Shin-kicking in England, the weapon was an axe. However, with time, various innovations were made and eventually the cotswolds developed steel toecaps to use as shin-kicks.
During the early days, shin-kicking was a common form of war sport, and it was also used during unarmed combat. In the 17th century, a gentleman from Scotland won a martial arts battle by using his wooden shins. Another battle related story told about a gentleman from Ireland defeating two men armed with only steel-tipped shoes. One of the attackers had a metal shins and he missed.
Shin-kickers or cotswolders used to compete in the England’s many public wrestling games. They were usually victorious and they also used to make money. Shin-kickers enjoyed wearing the metal shin-kickers and they wore them while traveling to visit different places including Scotland, Ireland and England. They took them back to their cotswolds, where they entered the battle arena in style. The Scottish nobles would give them money for the shin-kickers they wore.
In the early modern times, Shin-kicking became popular all over England including the royal family and also among common people. Shin-kickers enjoyed competing in the national competitions in England. At these competitions, there were ranks. There were actually seven ranks, each holding different responsibilities were meant to be achieved before being able to move up. They, as well as the victors, were entitled to wear the “embroidery” which included tartan clothing, silver necklaces and also a coat of arms.
Shin-kickers during the early days did not wear the metal helmets like what they wear during the present day. There were no rules regarding the color of the cloth that they wore. There are many examples where people from the middle ages to the 17th century wear the tartan clothing without any helmet or any other protective gear. The reason is because of the fact that the Scotland was a relatively small country then. But the point is that they still continue to wear the clothes that they wore during the early days because they believe that it gives them good luck. Another reason is that they feel that by wearing the tartan clothing, they can protect themselves from the evil spirits.
The game of shin-kicking has evolved into a very popular sport with competitors all over the world. It has also been taken up by a lot of companies as a means of promoting their products especially among children who love this sport and want to participate. There are companies who have made a business out of making products that are associated with this particular sport and they market their goods using this as a means of enticement to children.
