Muay Thai is getting more and more popular every day. The sport is not only for people that want to be a fighter, but it can also be a means of working out and getting exercise. With Muay Thai, every muscle in your body is used and its the perfect way to get fit, lose weight, learn how to defend yourself, build up confidence and much more.
Muay Thai is the Thai name for a form of martial art that was practiced in several Southeast Asian countries including Cambodia, Myanmar, Vietnam, and Malaysia. It is the national sport of Thailand, and is also known as Thaiboxing or Art of the Eight Limbs.
Traditional Muay Thai Martial Arts has a long history in Thailand as a fighting style used by the military. The military style of Muay Thai is called Lerdrit, while todays sport Muay Thai slightly varies from the original art and uses kicks and punches in a ring with gloves similar to those used in western boxing. Muay Thai Martial Arts is referred to as The Science of Eight Limbs, as the hands, elbows, knees and shins are all used extensively. A master practitioner of Muay Thai thus has the ability to execute strikes using eight points of contact, as opposed to two points (fists) in boxing and four points (fists, feet) used in the primarily sport-oriented forms of martial arts. Muay Thai Martial Arts is an especially versatile, brutal and straightforward fighting style.
The basic offensive techniques in Muay Thai use fists, elbows, shins, feet, and knees to strike an opponent. To bind the opponent for both offensive and defensive purposes, small amounts of stand-up grappling are used. Muay Thai is often a fighting art of attrition, where opponents exchange blows with one another. This is certainly the case with traditional fighters in Thailand, but is a less popular form of fighting in the contemporary world fighting circuit.
With the success of Muay Thai being incorporated in Mixed Martial Arts MMA fighting, it has become the de facto martial art of choice for competitive stand-up fighters. As a result, it has evolved in order and incorporated much more powerful hand striking techniques used in western style boxing, and the Thai style of exchanging blow for blow is no longer favorable.
When Muay Thai fighters compete against fighters of other styles (and if the rules permit it), they almost invariably emphasize elbow (sok) and knee (kao) techniques to gain a distinct advantage in fighting.
Almost all techniques in Muay Thai Martial Arts use the entire body movement, rotating the hip with each kick, punch, and block. The rotation of the hips in Muay Thai techniques and intensive focus on core muscles (abdominal and surrounding muscles) is very distinctive and is what sets Muay Thai Martial Arts apart from other styles of martial arts.
