About Muay Thai
Muay Thai is a combat sport from the Muay martial arts of Thailand that uses stand-up striking along with various clinching techniques. This physical and mental discipline, which includes combat on foot, is known as “the art of eight limbs” because it is characterized by the combined use of fists, elbows, knees, shins and feet. Muay Thai became widespread internationally in the twentieth century, when Muay Thai practitioners defeated notable practitioners of other martial arts. The professional sport of Muay Thai is governed by the World Muay Thai Council.
