Muay Thai is an ancient combat sport in Thailand. This is the type of sport where you use entire body as a weapon. When you practice Muay Thai, your entire body muscles are involved in this exercise, helping you improve your fitness level.
This martial arts sport is commonly known as the “Art of Eight Limbs” because in this practice you’ll use eight “points of contact” including elbows, kicks, punches and knee strikes. The Muay Thai trainer is called as a nay muay and western trainers are commonly known as nak muay farang which means a foreign boxer.

It is not like traditional combat sports where you merely use punches on the opponent, it is played under strict rules with main focus on the improvement of the body conditioning. This sport will not only improve your physical fitness level, but it also makes you mentally strong.
