Thai Boxing, otherwise known as Muay Thai, is a combat sport out of Thailand that uses standing kicks, combined with various clinch techniques (body to body). Dubbed the “art of the eight limbs”, it is known for its combined use of fists, elbows, knees and shins. Fights are preceded by the Wai Kru (salute to the trainer) and the Ram Muay (a ritual dance), followed by five three-minute rounds.

Thai Boxing is an ancestral art dating back to the early 15th century in Thailand.

According to legend, after the death of King Sen Muang Ma in 1411, his two sons, Ki and Fang, wanted to seize power. Having failed to break a stalemate on the battlefield, they decided to settle their conflict in a duel. Each side cheered on by their loyal followers, Fang was defeated and Ki ascended the throne. His warrior fighting technique evolved into a discipline in its own right.

Fast forward to the modern day, this discipline has spread across the globe. In the West, it is known as kickboxing, as opposed to conventional boxing (sometimes known as English boxing).
