THAILAND |

Thai Boxing has a long history in Thailandand is the country’s national sport.

Muay Thai as it is practiced today varies significantly from its ancestor Muay Boran, such as in its use of gloves similar to those worn in Western boxing.

The word Muay derives from the Sanskrit Mavya and Thai comes from the word Tai.

Muay Thai is referred to as the “Art of Eight Limbs“.
