What Is Muay Thai
Muay Thai is a form of hard martial art practiced in large parts of the world, including Thailand and other Southeast Asian countries. Traditional Muay Thai today is quite a bit different from what was practiced in ancient times called ‘Muay Boran’, which uses kicks and punches in a ring with gloves similar to those used in Western boxing.
In Muay Thai you’ll often here reference to “The Art of the Eight Limbs“. The hands, shins, elbows, and knees are all used extensively in this art, which makes it distinct from more traditional stand-up art such as boxing and karate. A practitioner of Muay Thai (“nak muay“) learns to strike using each of the eight “points of contact,” versus “two points” (fists) in Western boxing and “four points” (fists, feet) used in the Karate and other forms of martial arts.
Why Is Muay Thai Good For You?
A recent study showed that the average attention-span of an adult is less than 8 seconds. In comparison a goldfish has an average attention span of 9 seconds. A goldfish! We’re all busy, but today we often forget to take care of ourselves and our own personal needs. We all have families, jobs, and plenty of other things to keep us busy, but if what if you could carve out a little time for yourself, get in better shape, learn to defend yourself with the world’s #1 stand-up fighting discipline, and have fun?!
