WHAT IS MUAY THAI?

 

“Muay” translate to “Boxing” in Thai, so Muay Thai is literally Thai Boxing. Muay Thai was first formalised as a modern combat sport in the early 20th century. The sport ws influenced by British boxing where codified rules and the boxing ring were put in place. During this period, fighters also ditched wrapping hands with ropes (“Kard Chuek”) and began wearing boxing gloves in competitions.

Muay Thai si a stand-up striking sport, with two competitors in the ring throwing punches, elbows, knees and kicks at each other. Clinching, sweeps and throws are also allowed. BEsides the 8-point contact, a key difference between Muay Thai and many other stand-up combat sports is its emphasis on traditional elements such as the pre-fight dance ritual known as Wai Kru Ram Muay, the head dress (Mongkon) and the Sarama music the accompanies each fight.
