Meaning


Muay Thai is a combat sport that finds its origin in a noble art with antique traditions, it is also the Thai national sport. ... 
MUAY literally means “combat” and it derives from the Sanskrit (original Hindu language) word “Mavya” which literally means “unite 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



The art of eight limbs, more commonly known as Muay Thai, is the national sport of Thailand. It is widely regarded as the most devastating and feared martial art in and outside of the ring.

Early morning runs and four hours per day of training, pounding through Thailand's hot weather is the staple that makes a Nak Muay (Thai fighter in Thai). It is hard work and dedication that Muay Thai fighters and fans respect.

Legendary martial artist Bruce Lee once stated, "The individual is more important than any style." Thus the key in any martial art is not how many punches or kicks one can execute, but rather how martial arts can help improve one's life.







Ancient art


Muay Thai or sometimes known as "kickboxing" in the Western world is a form of martial arts that involves the use of the whole body especially the arms, hands and legs as weapons and for self defense. Originating as a fighting art developed in Ancient Siam for the soldiers who were defending the country against attacks by the Burmese and Cambodians, it has evolved into an intricate fighting discipline that though may sound brutal but is actually rather graceful and steeped with many traditions and rituals. 

Muay Thai is a popular sport in Thailand though now they don't use it to go around "killing" other soldiers but rather to learn it as a tradition, culture and off course fame. The Western world has also embraced this fighting art form and now there are many tournaments as well as World Championship Competitions along the same popularity line as a good World Boxing Match, More
