Thai Boxing or Muay Thai, is the national sport of Thailand. “Muay” translates to “boxing” in Thai, so Muay Thai is literally Thai boxing. It is a martial art with roots originating from military use dating back to around the 13th century during the time of the Sukhothai Kingdom.

Muay Thai is known as the “Art of the 8 limbs” because it makes use of 8 points of contact to execute punches, elbows, knees and kicks. This differs it from other stand-up combat sports such as boxing (2 points – fists) and karate (4 points – fists and feet).

Training Muay Thai helps to build mental fortitude, body strength and flexibility as well as an incredible cardio performance especially when training under real Thai conditions. Muay Thai will challenge your limits, both physically and mentally, as it takes all of your energy in each session and requires perseverance. It will strengthen your mind and confidence as all Eastern martial arts will do. The natural display of such confidence and authority will transpire once you reach a certain level.

The traditional ceremonial dance (Wai Kru dance) that the Muay Thai fighter performs before their fights looked very much like a phoenix rising from the ashes, which expresses the current situation we are all in plus also the spirit of a fighter, for whom defeat is nothing but additional motivation to do better.
