INTRODUCTION TO MUAY THAI
Muay Thai, also known as Thai Boxing or ‘the art of eight limbs’, is the national sport of Thailand and was developed around the 14th century. Muay Thai focuses on using eight points of contacts – punches, kicks elbows and knee strikes. In the 20th century, the discipline has become one of the most popular combat sports in the world when Thai Boxers defeated highly-ranked fighters specialising in other martial arts. The discipline was originally a fighting technique used in warfare but has altered into a respected sport that has a worldwide audience.
