Muay Thai, also known as Thai Boxing, is a fighting art that originated in Thailand 2,000 years ago. It is the national sport of Thailand, and is arguably the most sought-after kickboxing style in the world. Often called the "toughest ring sport in the world," it is known for its powerful techniques of punching (boxing), elbows, knees, kicks, ring evasion and angles, and has come to be dubbed "the Art of Eight Limbs." Not to be confused with mainstream cardio kickboxing classes, Muay Thai represents authentic fight training for practitioners of all levels. The Muay Thai practitioner must have superior speed and conditioning through hard training. Classes will involve the use of shadowboxing, footwork skills, padwork, heavy bag training, and various partner coordination drills. Traditionally, fighters all over the world seek Muay Thai to improve their effectiveness, and give themselves the edge in the ring.
