Muay Thai, known as the art of eight limbs, is a style of combat originating in Thailand. Unlike other striking Arts which use two or four points of impact (hands and feet), Muay Thai uses eight: hands, feet, knees and elbows.
Muay Thai training is intense and exhausting in its application. When you combine knees, elbows, kicks and clinch work to Western Boxing you can imagine your work rate increases. Today Muay Thai is an important part of any Mixed Martial Arts training; being able to dominate an opponent whilst standing is still the preferred outcome with most MMA practitioners.
Muay Thai training is also very popular with women. As a practical form of self defense and with the empowerment that comes from striking pads in a class, Muay Thai is great for women looking to start a Martial Art or self defence system.
This style of combat will give you an amazing workout as well as being a vital tool in MMA training.
