MUAY THAI

TRAINING FOR SELF-DEFENSE, FITNESS, OR COMPETITION

MUAY THAI

Muay Thai is a traditional martial art that began in Thailand over 2000 years ago and is one of the fastest growing combat sports. Muay Thai is known as the “art of eight limbs” because it incorporates punches, kicks, knees, and elbow strikes. A Muay Thai fighter, or nak-muay, has the ability to strike using eight points of contact, versus two (fists) in boxing or four (fists & feet) in other martial arts. In addition to striking, Muay Thai also incorporates stand up grappling, called the clinch.
