Known as the “art of the eight limbs”

As a combat sport, Muay Thai originates from the muay martial arts of Thailand. It involves a range of stand-up clinching and striking techniques and is characterised by the need for a great deal of mental and physical discipline.

Known as the “art of the eight limbs” Muay Thai makes combined use of fists, elbows, knees, shins and feet, all of which we will teach you in our non-contact classes (All Level’s Classes). This ancient battlefield skill, once used to settle national issues, has become a hugely popular sport in modern times. It’s long and fascinating history is well told on the World Muaythai Council website, if you’d like more background on this Thai Sport of Kings.

Our Muay Thai classes draw on the skill, discipline and speed of the Muay Thai sport but are non-contact (All Level’s Classes), making them available, accessible, and great fun for everyone!

What is Muay Thai?

History of Muay Thai

Muay Thai is referred to as “The Art of Eight Limbs”; and using eight points of contact the body mimics weapons of war. The hands become the sword and dagger; the shins and forearms were hardened in training to act as armor against blows, and the elbow to fell opponents like a heavy mace or hammer; the legs and knees became the axe and staff. The body operated as one unit. The knees and elbows constantly searching and testing for an opening while grappling and trying to spin an enemy to the ground for the kill.

The King of Thailand is an avid fan of Muay Thai. Since being crowned its popularity has grown more than in any other era in history.
