About Muay Thai

Muay Thai is a combat sport of Thailand that uses stand-up striking along with various clinching techniques. This physical and mental discipline which includes combat on shins is known as “the art of eight limbs” because it is characterised by the combined use of fists, elbows, knees and shins, being associated with a good physical preparation that makes a full-contact fighter very efficient.

Improves cardiovascular endurance, strength, balance, rhythm and coordination – all important elements for Muay Thai that will work wonders for your confidence and fitness levels.

Muay Thai became widespread internationally in the twentieth century, when practitioners defeated notable practitioners of other martial arts.
