Muay Thai, which translates to Thai Boxing, is a system of combat that is over 4 centuries old. During ancient times, the Thai people developed Muay Thai as a dominating and combative system to be used against the enemies from other nations. At that time, Muay Thai was time tested and proven effective by the ancient warriors of Siam. Around the early 1920’s, Thai Boxing spawned into a modern day sport, similar to boxing you would see on TV, and today is known as Thailand’s national sport. Muay Thai teaches the student or fighter to use their most effective natural weapons; fists, knees, elbows and legs.
