Muay Thai Kickboxing

What is Muay Thai?

Often referred to as ‘The Art of Eight Limbs,’ Muay Thai fighters utilize both legs and arms, with the end goal of taking down their opponent. Each body part serves as its own, individual weapon: fighters’ hands serve as swords, their shins as shields and armor and their elbows and knees as a hammer or axe. Fights usually do not go on for more than five rounds, lasting three minutes each.

Mysterious Roots

Where or from whom Muay Thai actually originated from has yet to be completely discovered. Most records were destroyed in 1767, after the Burmese army apparently burned all records of its roots. There are still many stories, however, as to how this martial art form came about.

One is that all Thai military members were taught this hand-to-hand form of combat as a means of protection against neighboring countries, including Myanmar and Cambodia. Another says that as Thai people moved south from China, the struggle to occupy land forced them to develop their fighting skills to defend both themselves and their land from the threat of possible invasion.
