key features about this class
Muay Thai, which translates to Thai Boxing, has origins back to the Siamese period in Thailand. This fighting style was developed from traditional Muay Boran which was used in ancient combat by the Thai army. The term Muay Boran actually covers all the different combat variations during that time. Because this fighting style was used directly in hand to hand combat, you will find that many techniques do not cross over into Muay Thai due to its lethal nature.
With the introduction of gloves, time limits and standard rule sets, Muay Thai grew in popularity and by the late 20th century. had spread to many countries around the world. It is often referred to as the “Art of 8 Limbs” due to its usage of 8 points of contact.
