About Muay Thai:
Muay Thai is the world’s fastest growing stand-up combat sport due in part to it also being the most intense and difficult stand-up sport.
Originating in Thailand where it is their national sport, Muay Thai is referred to as the “Art of Eight Limbs,” as it uses punches, kicks, elbows and knee strikes to have 8 points of fight contact, rather than the 2 points (fists) used in boxing.
Muay Thai evolved from the older Muay Boran which was a combat method to be used by Siamese soldiers once they lost their weapons in battle. In addition to being practical for use in warfare, Muay Thai also quickly became a sport for entertainment in Thailand and has since spread throughout the world.
The ancient influences still present in modern day Muay Thai can be seen in the practice of the Wai Khru, a ritual performed in the ring before a fight in which the fighter pays respect to his coach and training camp and asks Buddha for protection for him and his opponent.
Many fighters that follow tradition are seen wearing a headband called a Mongkhon while performing the Wai Khru and arm bands known as Pra Jiad.
Today Muay Thai proves to be an intelligent and strategic sport practiced in amateur and professional bouts as well as a fun and safe way to relieve stress, improve health and confidence, and condition the entire body.
