“The art of eight limbs”
Muay Thai boxing is known as “the art of eight limbs”, because unlike Western boxing there are eights points of contact, not just the fists, but also elbows, knees and feet.
A sport that has been around for centuries
Muay Thai has been practiced in Thailand for centuries. During the Ayutthaya era the sport was part of military training. Today still an important part of Thai culture, the sport has gained popularity in Western countries thanks to movies as “Kickboxer” with Jean Claude van Damme.
As the sport has become popular outside of Thailand, an increasing number of foreign fighters compete for the MAX World Champion belt.
