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, Muay Thai 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.
ESSENTIAL MUAY THAI EQUIPMENT
Muay Thai Gloves – These are probably one of the most important parts of your kit bag, make sure you have high-quality gloves at the right size to keep you and your training partner safe. The right gloves will provide you with comfort and protection as well as speed and durability. It’s crucial you have the right gloves for sparring, bag work and for competitions (if you are competing). Heavier gloves (14oz or above) will be essential for sparring or bag work.
Mouth Guards – Dental injuries are very common in combat sports and it’s crazy to think that a very small investment can prevent a very expensive and timely treatment but it’s true! We have a wide selection of Mouth Guards / Gum Shields for adults and children in different colours and designs.
Head Guards – When it comes to investing in a high-quality Head Guard, this should be one of your biggest priorities to make sure you don’t suffer from any head injuries after sparring. You may not need it every training session, but you should always have it in your training bag just in case. Our top of the range Head Guards offer great protection for your temple, cheekbones and jaw.
Ankle Supports – Muay Thai requires a lot of lateral movement which makes your ankles vulnerable to injuries by landing on it wrong. As a result, ankle supports are extremely important and should be worn at all times to prevent sprains.
Muay Thai Shin Guards – An essential requirement in Thai Boxing whether you are a beginner or a pro. Good Shin Guards will offer adequate protection for shin and ankle so you don’t get any injuries in sparring or training.
Hand Wraps – This piece of Muay Thai equipment will protect your hand and wrists from injury. Here at the Minotaur Fight Store, you can choose from the classic Hand Wraps or Hand Wrap Gloves so you can slip them on faster and easier.
Muay Thai Shorts – Muay Thai Shorts are important to have so you are able to perform specific techniques. The shorts are much shorter in length so they don’t restrict the leg extension of a fighter.
