MUAY THAI EXPLAINED

MuayThaiELBOWMuay Thai or Thai boxing is also called “the art of eight limbs”. It doesn’t just focus on punches or kicks but combines them with elbows and knees to create an infinite range of combinations that can be used to engage your opponent. Today, the blocks and strikes of Muay Thai are often used in the kickboxing ring and/or MMA as both sports have adopted Muay Thai as a staple of training.

MUAY THAI IN ACTION

One of the many things that sets Muay Thai apart from other striking styles is the use of the clinch. Whilst many other styles such as pure kickboxing and western boxing separate fighters when they begin to grab one another, in Muay Thai the competitors will grab the back of their opponents’ necks and utilize knee strikes to the midsection. Consistent and effective use of elbow strikes is also something that sets Muay Thai apart from many other martial arts styles.
