Muay Thai Kick Boxing

Muay Thai (“Thai Boxing”) is the national sport of Thailand, and is also known as Thai Kickboxing or the Art of the Eight Limbs. Traditional Muay Thai has a long history in Thailand as a martial art used by the military. The military style of Muay Thai is called Lerdirt, while today’s “Sport Muay Thai” slightly varies from the original art and uses kicks and punches in a ring and with gloves similar to those used in western boxing.

Muay Thai is referred to as “The Science of Eight Limbs”, as the hands, feet, elbows, and knees are all used extensively in this art. A master practitioner of Muay Thai thus has the ability to execute strikes using eight “points of contact,” as opposed to “two points” (fists) in boxing and “four points” (fists, feet) used in the primarily sport-oriented forms of martial arts. Muay Thai is an especially versatile, straightforward martial art.
