Muay Thai, meaning "Thai Kickboxing" is the national sport of Thailand. It is also known as the art of eight limbs; a Muay Thai student strikes with the two hands, feet, elbows and knees as well as clinching and sweeps. Like most full contact fighting sports, Muay Thai has a heavy focus on body conditioning. Muay Thai is specifically designed to promote the level of fitness and toughness required for ring competition.
