Muay Thai

"In the middle of chaos lies opportunity."Bruce Lee

Muay Thai is a combat sport from Thailand that uses stand-up striking along with various clinching techniques. The word muay derives from the Sanskrit mavya which means “to bind together”. Muay Thai is referred to as the “Art of Eight Limbs” or the “Science of Eight Limbs” because it makes use of punches, kicks, elbows and knee strikes, thus using eight “points of contact”, as opposed to “two points” (fists) in boxing and “four points” (hands and feet) used in other more regulated combat sports, such as kickboxing and savate. A practitioner of Muay Thai is known as a Nak Muay. Western practitioners are sometimes called nak muay farang, meaning “foreign boxer.”
