Muay Thai Home
Muay Thai (Thai Boxing or Kickboxing) is widely recognized as the original sport of Kickboxing, and it is known as the Art of Eight Limbs, referring to the human body’s natural weapons: 2 fists, 2 feet, 2 elbows, and 2 knees. The exact origins of this martial art have been lost to antiquity, but it is known to trace to its militaristic beginnings when Siamese soldiers used unarmed fighting techniques to compliment their traditional weapons of the bow, the spear, the staff, and the sword.
These unarmed fighting methods of the Thai people developed into martial arts in their own rights, with each region having its own unique style. Contests were held throughout the year, especially during the kingdom’s Holidays and religious festivals. Due to the wide range of fighting styles employed throughout the country, a unified set of rules was implemented in the early 1920’s and the modern sport of Muay Thai was born.
Today, Muay Thai is recognized as one of the most efficient and effective martial arts in existence, and is by far the most popular choice for a style of striking amongst Mixed Martial Arts practitioners. Muay Thai is also world renowned for its rigorous training regimen, as Muay Thai fighters are recognized as some of the best conditioned athletes in the world.
