Fast-Paced And Difficult To Master, Muay Thai Is One Of Thailand's Proudest Traditions. Read On For A Basic Overview Of This Centuries-Old Martial Art.
Early On, Young Muay Thai Fighters Are Taught A Simple Mantra: "Kick Loses To Punch; Punch Loses To Knee; Knee Loses To Elbow; Elbow Loses To Kick." Though It May Sound Straightforward, In Practice, Muay Thai Challenges Fighters To Strategize On The Fly As They Shift Through Stances In Hopes Of Catching Their Opponent Off-Guard. Whereas Boxing Focuses On Two Points Of Contact—The Hands—And Other Martial Arts Incorporate Four—The Hands And Feet—Muay Thai Involves The Elbows And Knees For A Dynamic Style Of Combat Known As "The Art Of Eight Limbs." As A Result, Fighters Must Train Their Entire Bodies In Order To Both Attack And Defend Against Any Of Eight Different Attack Points.
