What is Muay Thai?
Muay Thai, sometimes referred to as Thai boxing, is a combat sport that uses stand-up striking, sweeps, and various clinching techniques. This discipline is known as the "Art of Eight Limbs", as it is characterised by the combined use of fists, elbows, knees and kicks. Muay Thai became widespread internationally in the late 20th to 21st century, when Westernised practitioners from Thailand began competing in kickboxing and mixed-rules matches as well as matches under Muay Thai rules around the World.
Muay Thai is believed to have been developed by the army as a form of self-defence and it can be traced at least to the 16th Century as a peace-time martial art practised by the soldiers of King. As well as being a practical fighting technique for use in actual warfare, Muay became a sport in which the opponents fought in front of spectators who went to watch for entertainment. These Muay contests gradually became an integral part of local festivals and celebrations, especially those held at temples.
