Muay Thai, translated into English as Thai Boxing, is the national sport of Thailand. It is the hand-to-hand tactic used by the Thailand’s army. During the latter half of the 20th century, Muay Thai was exported to many countries and is now practiced by hundreds of thousands of people all over the world. Thai Boxing features punches, kicks, elbows and knees to wear down and knock out an opponent. The training method develops devastating power, speed, and superb cardio-vascular endurance as well as fighting spirit.
Muay Thai is a martial art from Thailand referred to as the “Art of Eight Limbs” because it makes use of punches, kicks, elbows, and knee strikes, thus using the eight “points of contact.” Muay Thai is an excellent form of self-defense that enhances one’s flexibility, stamina, strength, and speed. With practices, an individual develops confidence, self-discipline, and a positive attitude. Students will learn proper form, stance, footwork, as well as the technique of basic punches, kicks, knee, and elbow strikes used in Muay Thai.
Muay Thai training is also quite safe thanks to sophisticated pad training that keep practitioners healthy. It has also proven very effective outside the ring and has been embraced enthusiastically by practitioners of a variety of self-defense, sporting, military and law enforcement activities.
